Default Pippin Lake???

Anyone ever have any success in Pippin Lake near the Midbay Bridge? I went in for the first time today. There were a crap load of mullet, but no indication of specs or redfish???

I have fished there a few times. The only thing I caught was catfish on live shrimp.

How do you get to it? Through White Point?

You enter through a small cut that is a few hundreds yards to the east of the MBB. It averages about 5' throughout. There were a ton of mullet yesterday, but I couldn't coax anything out of there.

I thought you were fishing off the bank, my bad. Doubtful I will try and get my Cape 19 in there. Thanks though!

I used to live on Eglin AFB and have fished lake pippin a couple times with some success, all the rumors i heard about the place is that in the colder months there are some big trout to be had. i caught several decent ones each time i went, no monster though.

Growing up, my grandparents would always stay at that Maxwell-Gunter camp gound under Mid-Bay. I have caught a lot of trout in the winter. A 52MR or TTR Mirrorlure with a slow retrieve was the best. During the summer, we would fish on the NE side of side of the bridge because they dredged that area for the barges used when the bridge was build.

Bluewater bay marina or Fred Gannon State park.
