This weekend I have put together a big family reunion of sorts. My wife and I got married about 2 years ago, and we always wanted to get a big dual-family beach vacation going and this year will be the first one. We have cottage rentals from Fri-Mon at Keaton Beach Marina.
Scalloping and fishing will be the on the activity agenda (if you don't include drinking beer around the cottages).
I was wondering if any of you guys would throw me a bone on where I can find some wrecks/reefs/any kind of relief around the Keaton area? I have alot of public numbers on various websites, but without going through all of them, it would be helpful to know which ones are productive and which ones have any significant relief. I will be using my CS 16', so I don't plan to run much deeper than about 30'.
I'd like to hunt some seatrout as well, but mainly doing some cobia and flounder fishing would be most appealing.
'Preciate any help, fellas! :fishing
Have any of you guys tried, or heard about, anything going on in the area near N29 47.948, W83 40.776? The chart shows an area of deeper water that extends into shallower water. Also, I see a wreck at N29 49.223, W83 45.784, anybody ever try it?
Out of Keaton you will have to go 3 times the distance you did at Carrabelle. :nono
30ft was the deepest I was planning to go, IF (big "IF") it's calm sometime while we are down there.
I usually don't ever go out more than about 15 miles at maximum from shore if it's dead calm. The storms are the thing that worry me this time of year. I have my cell phone, VHF, SPOT, GPS and compass plus required safety gear. I know most people have these also and we all try to stay safe out there while we have fun adventures, including myself.
