Rocky Creek

Looking to stay on Rocky Creek this summer. Am I able to get in and out to the gulf in a 18’ bay boat?

    On high tides you will probably be fine. Take it slow and try to follow someone out. I have seen a few people that try and go "straight" West out from the boat ramp, but there are some big oyster bars and rocks just waiting to eat a lower unit! On the map I attached once you turn "left" at the white pole marker and are headed westerly look for additional poles/markers and stay on the port side heading out and you should be fine. If you have access to a kayak, it takes the "pucker factor" away and you can just enjoy the fishing! Good luck.

    One more point- look at google maps satellite view of the area, and my map will make more sense!

    Thank you. Your map looks very similar to looking at it on google. They morning tides seem up pretty good when I plan to be there. Maybe be ok just going slow?

    If you are planning on fishing the Big Bend area you might consider Florida Marine Tracks, pretty sure they cover up there.
