Appalachicola Bay/River

The wife and I are heading down from KY next week to chase after some flounder, trout and reds.  Although we have plenty of experience around the bay, with the wind forecast of less than desirable east/north east winds almost all week next week, we were thinking of trying to go upriver some to get out of the wind.   Any suggestions on how far upriver we should/need to go to find some fish and get out of the wind?  Also, do we need a freshwater license to fish in the river (can’t find anything about it on license website but won’t keep any bass, etc we catch).  Our boat has a very shallow draft so can also go up the East River if needed.   Any help is greatly appreciated and will post reports of success/failure.
