Default Introducing the "Navarre Formation" Reef Site

Finally resolved the name, meeting with the county tomorrow to work out implementation processes.

Shout-out to Whack'emStack'em, Need2Fish and TCAT for the guidance, effort and support.

Everytime I see the beach now and imagine the reefs in place, 200 kayakers lined up on a chamber of commerce day of sun and sand to fish a one day tourny... this happens in my head....




Large area offshore is 1x2 mile area 700+ reefs

Two nearshore areas are 60 more snorkling reefs

Blue area is the parking washdown and walkovers for yak, SUPs, surfboards etc.

The overall vision of this plan is to provide a specific area with the longest pier, largest nearshore snorkeling cluster, closest/highest density reef to both of the pier and snorkeling cluster to enable incidental reef gamefish sightings in the nearshore clusters and catches from the pier. Secondarily to position the large area offshore reefing area furthest from any pass or adjoining reef to provide a world class non-motorized fishery for viewing from SUP's, kayaks, canoes or other methods. Together this encompasses the Navarre Formation.


If you want the Navarre Formation GoogleEarth KMZ - ask the admin to attach it to here as a download.

Will the walkovers be ramps down the beach? If so that would be AWESOME! Just dont make it like the kayak launch over on Cape San Blas. It has a sharp 90 degree turn that forces you to lift the kayaks up and over the rails on the end that makes it pretty much useless. Who ever designed that wasnt thinking too straight!

Before we know it, this WILL be the location of the greatest shotgun start kayak tournament on the Gulf Coast! Imagine the possibilities!!

JD - LoL, Who yu talking to hear?? Dang bet'cha we've built in all the things to make it work/ 'cause we're had to overcome the same issue you describe w/r/t walkover beach entry.

With that being said, please ask any question(s) as we want to ensure we have covered all angles.

Does the "or other methods" include my boat trolling through there like I have for the past few years or will this area go the way of Biscayne or Pennekamp with only boats with permits able to fish it. The so called SRZ.

Dont worry, by the time you run all the way from the pass to Navarre the kayakers will beat you to the fish. I can leave my house and be over that reef in less time then it takes for you to get from the pass to that reef in an average boat.

View from the pier last year in late March. Stopped by on the way to Lillian. We counted 35 boats in view.

I have the same questions, will boats be banned ? Also you mentioned a pier over the reefs, wouldn't a stationary fishing platform decimate a reef from all fish species ???????? I mean I think you would have the occasional swim by's like you have at any pier with a natural bottom but as far as good quality reef fish that stay on that reef they would be wiped out by pier fishermen fishing day in and day out.

Average boat! 400 ponies strapped to the back of a 24ft boat doesnt classify as average! At least in my book!
