Default Naval Live Oaks

Does anyone know where I can launch close to Naval Live Oaks? Cant find anything on Google Earth, or the Austin Kayak Launchpoint maps. Seems like the closest is the south end of 3 Mile Bridge. Anything closer?

Are you wanting to launch on the bay side? There are a couple service roads off of Hwy 98 in Gulf Breeze that go to the water but they're usually gated. I don't know what the current rules are but they used to only open them up for private parties and other events that reserved the gazebos well in advance.

The visitor's center in the park on the Sound side could probably tell you the current rules.

Good luck,
Alex

Hank- I just got an Ocean Kayak yesterday, thanks to my wonderful wife, and am going to test it out on a little inshore fishing this weekend. I was thinking about going Soundside, but am also thinking about the area just west of the south end of the 3-Mile bridge in Gulf Breeze. (Damn that sounds confusing.)

There is an area of rocks just off the seawall where I used to fish pretty hard as a teenager. Had some pretty good luck with specs, redfish and even spanish when the tide was right.

Send me a PM if you are interested in fishing that area this weekend.

Gary

Told you it sounded confusing.... It is the EAST side of the 3-mile bridge in Gulf Breeze.

OX- I am thinking about going Saturday morning. Just sent Hank a PM in case he wants to go as well. This is going to be a tryout trip for me since it will be my first time in the water with this new kayak. But I am bringing 2 rods and some live skrimps..
Willieb: Great link buddy! Never knew we had so many launches in out area!
