Tried to go to dog ballard yesterday. Forest service turned us away from St. Mark's lighthouse road because of a controlled burn. Ran down the river to the bay and the .3 foot waves called for by nooa and windfinder turned into 4.5-5. Caught a few BSB and hooked a couple of "dang that's big" on St. Mark's reef. Was miserable. Donated a perfectly good anchor to the next diver on that reef when it didn't want to come loose and we took one over the bow screwing around with the anchor line cleated off and running her this way and that trying to get the hook loose. Wind is even worse today.

My buddy who I brought down to take fishing is old and was beat up by the ride yesterday.

Back up plan for comfort is crappie. Where do I get bull minnows or any crappie minnows in Tallahassee and what body of water should we try?

Thanks in advance for the help guys.

    We went to Miccosukee for a few hours. Wind was still rough. No crappie but we did get into some massive bream and a few smallish bass.
