For putting in this fine kiosk and charging $7.50 to use the worse ramp in the county. :banghead

It's narrow with no room to swing a boat trailer around for launching and .. You get to walk 3 blocks across 4 lanes of traffic (with no crosswalk) to get back to the boat. :shrug



It's the old Knox baithouse ramp next to Charlies seafood. There isn't a sign saying the price to launch and it only takes credit cards FYI ..

I was going to launch elsewhere but was there and didn't have plans on leaving the bay. So.

Anyway it was cold and Alex from Ga. and I left my house at 9am launching about 10am to close to a slack low tide.
Caught a couple of ladyfish in the bay . They seem to be running larger this year in there. Went to the main spring and were met with hoards of loafers milling about.



Seen several large tarpon but other than ladyfish not much action. Over the spring I seen a large school of reds (looked like) and some jacks also. No bites but I got one trout close to 22" so Alex had dinner.
Also one of the big jacks.




Other than more ladyfish and some small trout in Bagley cove area the bite was slow for us. Still a nice outing.

    So much for being a "Public Ramp".

    City owns it. Others are county.

    Sure was good but it didn't taste like a rainbow trout.

    Planted rainbow trout taste like the liver pellets they feed them.
