Thank you. I was just wondering what area of the state. Great day!Just a creek off the St. Marks river. Most anywhere in the big bend on a winter negative low tide is the same. Just find a stretch of deeper water somewhere up that creek. Trick is getting up in the creek at low tide. Or go in before it gets low and stay till the tide comes back and you can get out.
Great day on the water! Love the Big Bend area of FL ... just don't like the cold weather in winter months! Only reason we did not locate in that area of FL instead of SW FL.
Absolutely agree!Southwest Florida has some awesome fishing. I really miss the Snook. Wish we had them.
But just about all of florida except the big bend has just too many people. I love salt marshes instead of beaches and sand knats and yellow flies instead of snook if it keeps the people away. Our coastal area is well protected from development by all of the public land. St Marks national wildlife refuge, Apalachicola National Forest and lots of state wildlife management areas.
Thank you for the info. I found a house rental on a canal on Alligator Point. It`s a 5 minute run to the open bayou. Looks like the bayou, sandbars and slews off the main bayou will hopefully be holding fish. It looks fishy anyways. Either way, fish or no fish, it will definitely be a good time.Steinhatchee is very popular. Good facilities there. Lodging and restaurants. Keaton Beach closest Lodging and restaurants Perry florida.
You will find none of that until you get all the way around to the St Marks/Panacea area.
All is great fishing . Econfina river, Aucilla river( full of rocks), St Marks national refuge light house ramp (don't go on low tide) give access with no facilities.
Alligator point is not an area I fish but I am sure you will find quality fishing. No restaurants and you might be able to rent a house.
