I had such a good time the last time I went up to the Gandy/power plant area, that I'd entertain going up near St. Pete again.
This time, I would like to try the area near Ft. D, that can be seen from the Skyway Bridge, sometime in the near future, on a nice, 7-8 kt. wind day.

NO MORE than 9-10 kts, though!

If interested, send me a PM.

Bill

That's GREAT! Looks like an interesting area.

You MUST know my next question... how DEEP is the water @ low tide?

Gotta be at least 18" for my pedals. :fishing:

Not sure, but you definitely don't want to go to Ft De Soto then...it gets REAL skinny there when it's low tide. I've been there a few times where I had to get out an pull my kayak for a 1/4 mile and I only need 6 or 7 inches probably...

Thank you for that info, Dave.

Man, with ALL that water out there, it's hard to believe there ISN'T any water out there!

I just looked it up and it looks like the water has loads of drop offs a bit further out heading toward the channel.

IS IT SAFE to be a little farther out there on a yak?

Right?!? That's what I say. Miguel is pretty good though...I've been there a few times and never saw it that skinny...I think you'll be good there

Hi Bill, Miguel is in my backyard! There is plenty of water for your kayak. I have fished it many times. I'll be there August 8-16 If you want to come up I'd love to get together and try it along with anybody else that would want to go, maybe DavidT. I can show you the way around but can't promise fish, I not as good a guide as you! I'll be ready for some salt water fishing by then, heck I'm ready now! See yaFreaky

Hey, Mike!

Call me a couple of weeks before you come in Aug.
We'll do it.
PM me if you lost my phone #.

Bill

Dave,

When you have the time... I'm ready.
