  1. dabear is right. If you go into the park, you will need a Everglades National Park boater permit. Now is great time to apply since the $50 fee is waived for now. It’s an on line course, take about 45 minutes, but we’ll worth it. And fish’n is great , good luck.

    A little farther east around Carrabelle area is the same. Warm waters have the reds feeding along with some flounder. And the same here for trout, very spotty. Offshore the sea bass are plentiful as well as grunts. Of course the usual releases of grouper and red snapper since out of season. Cobia should be showing up soon, probably next couple weeks. Good luck

    Where are you staying on Forgotten Coast. I’m on Carrabelle River. There’s plenty places to wade fish or public docks for fish’n .
  5. Headed out Carrabelle River about mid morning just as tide was turning. It wasn’t long before 1st Red was in the boat. It measured almost 19” so it was released for another day. We did keep a pair of 24” to blacken on grille. Air temp was low 90’s, water temp mid 80’s. Next month thing should be cooling down, except the red fish bite- I’m expecting that to get really hot

    The official "What did you catch today" thread

    This was taken just before ARS season closed. 60+ feet off Dog Island ,’bout 10 miles out. The Cobia was just over min.size limit and taste great bacon wrapped
  7. 26 ½ “ caught off Dog Island. Bite was slow,water temp high 80’s, water clarity like dark root beer. Way too much rain !

    Gulf States to Manage Red Snapper

    Careful for what we ask for---. Yes there will be additional reporting from the rec. guys and the charter guides. Hard to believe but I heard our red snapper fishing days will probably be REDUCED !! Let's hope NOT !

    92 18MA Restore, Tank Removal - DIY

    My tank started leaking 8-10 years ago on my 93 18.5 MA. I called Maverick and they gave me who to call that made the tanks. BTY mine is a 50 gallon aluminum tank. They built a new tank and shipped it to me .Since I was this working at the time , Mikes Marine in St Marks Fl cut out the floor , replaced the tank and replaced the floor. The whole job at the time was around $2200. good luck Don
