Default Sherman Cove

Hey guys I have a couple of question about fishing at Nas Pensacola. Not sure if anyone has the answer's but its worth a shoot
1. Is there any fish in that round man made looking lake by the marina?
2. Has any one fished the bayou by Sherman inlet?
3. What exactly is considered the ICW ? sorry really new to salt fishing
4. Where is the best area to find reds and trout and with what?

I know there are several post about Nas Pcola and I have read them but I was just looking for some more in depth info. Thanks a bunch.

I can't offer much as I'm from out of tiwn, but I'm pretty sure that's a restricted area...

Lake Frederick I think it's called... not much there. I've fished it a couple times, caught a LOT of juvie flounder.

Sherman Cove Lagoon. Shallow, a lot of small speckled trout.

The Intercoastal Waterway is a channel that in our area goes from Mobile Bay to Port St Joe. It's guaranteed to be 10' (?) deep or so.

Marked with bouys and pilings.

I think the Coast Guard does a course for new mariners that can teach you a a lot of stuff like this.

why don't you talk to the marina personnel at Sherman ?? While you fish it from shore. you can't take a boat into the restricted area, Doesn't matter if you are active , retired or a DOD employee or just plain Joe.

While you figure it all.out
Head down here.see picture
Get a nice size rod with some decent size.line..say 20.lb.
Get you a chunk of mullet dead a wire leader and a trible hook..a..good size wieght.
Cast bait in icw.
Hold rod tight JK
Sit there and determine how you are going to get to the other side. While fishing.
When you figure that out. Follow the osprey in the morning in the evening..
They will lead you to the mullet
The mullet will be where the action is.
Welcome and good luck.
PS or take short cut buy a kayak used now follow the other kayaks to.where the osprey feed
Forget dead mullet get a lure and drag it behind you
What lure."while maxtrix shad of course"
OR spook or gold.spoon.
Caution
People have died Kayaking there abouts.
Be smart, be safe.
And report all decent catches here with a 16 digit grid.

Military grid reference system

The*military grid reference system*(MGRS)[1]*is the geocoordinate standard used by*NATO*militaries for locating points on the earth. The MGRS is derived from the*Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM)*grid system and the*universal polar stereographic (UPS)grid system, but uses a different labeling convention. The MGRS is used for the entire earth.

An example of an*MGRS coordinate, or*grid reference, would be*4QFJ12345678, which consists of three parts:

4Q (grid zone designator, GZD)FJ (the 100,000-meter square identifier)12345678 (numerical location;*easting*is 1234 andnorthing*is 5678, in this case specifying a location with 10*m resolution)

An MGRS grid reference is a point reference system. When the term 'grid square' is used, it can refer to a square with a side length of 10*km (6*mi), 1*km, 100*m (328*ft), 10*m or 1*m, depending on the precision of the coordinates provided. (In some cases, squares adjacent to a Grid Zone Junction (GZJ) are clipped, so polygon is a better descriptor of these areas.) The number of digits in the numerical location must be even: 0, 2, 4, 6, 8 or 10, depending on the desired precision. When changing precision levels, it is important to*truncate*rather than*roundthe easting and northing values to ensure the more precise polygon will remain within the boundaries of the less precise polygon. Related to this is the primacy of the southwest corner of the polygon being the labeling point for an entire polygon. In instances where the polygon is not a square and has been clipped by a grid zone junction, the polygon keeps the label of the southwest corner as if it had not been clipped.
