Default Help finding spots

So here's my deal. I'm new to the Milton area, it's about 45 min. north of p'cola right by the blackwater river.

I don't have a boat, but i do have a fresh and salt water pole as well as licences.

I was wondering if i could get some good places to go where i don't need a boat. Everytime i ask someone around here they only know where to get and take boats. A good lake, a good river spot, heck, even a bridge, but i'd like to actually have a chance of catching something.

I've been fishing for 15 years now and don't want to stop just because i'm here and don't have a boat. I am working on getting one though, but in the mean time...

Can anyone help me out?

There is a boat launch/park that is on a dead section of the river in the edge of milton. If going east on HWY 90 out of milton, go over the new bridge, and take first right at the Local Yokel gas station. Take the first named street to the right and follow it to the end. There is a dock, and alot of edge to fish from.

We go mullet fishing right up that river, and I see bream, bass, etc all the time right there. I bet catfish are in there too. It is a pretty place to try out...

Found your old launch spot. There are a lot of boats moored there, less than 6 inches of room for fishing. It would be a great spot if not for all the boats. The bait shop right there recommended that bridge on 90 right accross the river from the board walk area. I fished there for a few hours. It's a good spot. I didn't catch anything, but the guy 30 feet from me caught 3 8-12 inch catfish. Just one of those days, we were both using live shrimp, but he ended up with the fish, oh well. I'm heading back out tomorrow morning.

Thanks for the suggestion,

If anyone else has any more, i'd be glad to try them out.

I would suggest getting a canoe or kayak and fishing the trestles around the Escambia River Bridge at night, if the lights are still on the fenders of the bridge. If Jim's Fish Camp is still open the guy that runs it, not Jim, (his son- think named Rick) should be able to put you on some holes that hold redfish, specks, and flounder. Hybrid bass are stocked there lastI heard (moved to Perdido in 2004).

If you get a canoe, kayak, or john boat of any kind, you could paddle or pole to the "mullet hole".

The same road that turns by the Local Yokel, keep going about a mile and you will see a beer joint on the left. Take the road across from it to the right. Go to the end of the road and there is a boat launch. There is a bad drop off on that one, but ok for a little boat. Look to your right back up the channel, and you will almost always see boats fishing about 200 yards from the launch. They are mullet fishing. Some snatch hook, some catch them on grubs in the mouth, everybody has different method. I have sat right there and loaded the boat many times. To be fair, I have gone and not caught anything, too.
