    What? You can't get them to bite or you aren't legally allowed to catch them?

    it's a lagoon on a military installation. We used to be able to fish in there. I would catch 40-50" Reds in there on gulp or artificials but it was heavily fished. So you could used non-motorized vessels to fish the lagoons but that was 2 years ago. The EPA came in and did mercury test on these monster redfish and they stated too much mercury in them too consume. There is a drainage systerm that was built to let water in and out during low and high tide to come in and out. But it was built on top a garbage mound. The reds stack up in there during the incoming tide to feed on the shrimps and bait that get's flush in

    Stupid beaurucrats and clueless high ranking brass decided to close all fishing in the lagoon to fishing. NOT KNOWING that those were all over slot fish and they were probably 5-10 yr old fish and the SC slot size fish 15-23" would take awhile to build that kind of mercury in them. SO now those fish eat and sleep peace fully daily. There is easily world record fish in there but the boatloads!!! I've seen 60" Reds in there and MONSTER FLOUNDERS THAT LOOK LIKE FLOATing CAR FLOORMATS.

    Rules and signs never stopped me from fishing anywhere. What's the worse that could happen. If you get caught just play stupid and say you won't do it again. That works every time

    There is an old Spanish Fly episode that was shot in that pond. They fished out of a Classic Gheenoe.

    yeah this ain't no civilian town. Get caught you will get fine by DNR then the General will bust you down in pay grade, take away half your pay for 2 months and maybe lock you up for playing ingorance. it's alreay happen. This is a military installation i repeat that again, you don't play stupid here and get away with it.

    Let's see:

    1. Playing stupid will not work. They will just laugh as they write the ticket for federal trespass.

    2. If caught on a Federal installation, you will be charged with trespass and go to federal court, no and if or butts. Lawyer will start at about $800 and go up and you will be convicted.
