Default Launching a boat into backwater bay

I decided to get up early and go fishing tomorrow. I normally fishing choctawhatchee bay but decided give the black water a shot and do some exploring. I'll be coming from holt on either 10 or 90 what's a good ramp I can put in at so I do have a long run. I have a 21' hewes so it would need to handle the boat.

I went on a charter boat and we put in on Bain Dr just south of I10. Easy access to BW.

The OLE Splash Down!

I splash my boat (Wellcraft V-20) in Marquise Basin. Short idle out to river then motor South to BW Bay. There are several launches close to BW Bay. I have only used the one that I mentioned. Marquis Basin is just South of the train trussell and North of I-10. Gillespie rd. off Ward Basin will get you to the launch. I can not help if you need fishing advice.

Marquis Basin, Oyster Pile...both good launches. Bain Dr is a good launch to and seldom used.

Thanks for the advice I ended up launching out of Marquis, not a bad little ramp I will be using that one in the future. Ended up with one slot red just as it got light on a top water and that was pretty much it for the day other than a cat. I spent a lot of time running around checking things out though. A lot of promising looking spots on black water and east bay. Looking forward to spending some fishing fishing the area.

What was the water level like in Marquis Basin? I heard it could get pretty shallow on a low tide.

It does get shallow if you get out of the channel but if you stay on the left hand side as you go out your fine in most any boat

Thanks Buckchaser, good to to know. I have been considering launching there when the weather turns a little cooler and the trout bite moves up the river a little (hopefully).
