    Lanark market which is Carson's place. Ramp,bait,ice and good folks. Not free. Not sure of one in carrabelle.

    Free ramp right next to C Quarters (not great, but I could launch OC there with no problems on all tides), public ramp on Marine Street that's improved with double lanes and has floating docks. Fish Camp ramp at the end of Timber Island Road. I've used all these ramps as well as the one at Lanark behind Carson's store. The ramp there has a $10 launch fee. The ones in Carrabelle are free.

    Thanks guys. And ferris I'm fairly knowledgeable of the waters from Pensacola to Apalachicola, but not east of AP. Familyfishers recent post got my interest. :)

    And be sure to add a prayer for the trout in Apalachicola. I've been working on those for a few days now, but there is a lot of fresh water here, and I suspect that it'll be stained in a few days, so I'm looking for new horizons. And I've yet to catch over a hundred, so the bite is OFF!

    Fished Turkey Point Shoal Tuesday. Water was a little stained but not so bad. Caught trout and flounder on pilchards. Fishing the sand holes

    Hope the flounder hang around till I get there next weekend.

    Took a day off the water and drove over to Carrabelle and Lanark to explore the landings mentioned on here. I was fortunate to get the chance to meet Carson, and want to thank him for the tips on shallow water and grass. (sea grass). And it looks like I can manage all those landings on my Key West 19-6. Being able to fish over that way will give me some options when we have stained water, and strong north winds at Apalachicola.

    Lanark is usually very sheltered from the wind sir.

    I've fished Lanark in my 16 foot Tracker with 12-15 mph blowing. Unless you have a ketch from due west you should be alright.

    Just as a clarification--the ramp behind Carson's store is owned by the Boat Club and Carson does not set the fees

    Roger that Ed! OD, Carson is THE MAN with information about the inshore bite at Lanark.
