We're in a Robalo 245 Cuddy with twin Yamaha 150 four-strokes, but we've got access toa smaller center console boat as well. We've got a variety of tackle, but don't really know enough about how to use it around here. We've got a couple of 6.5' heavy rods with Penn reels for bottom fishing or trolling, a 10' Surf rod, and several 7' medium-heavy spinning rigs. We'd love more suggestions before morning! Thanks for all the replies, it's nice to have lots of options and ideas.

Yes. Freedom Boat Club. It's actually a friend of mine that's the member. He's not a fisherman....yet. But I'm helping him get there and he loves it sofar. It's pretty cool because we have access to a number of nice boats, depending on what we want to do. That Robalo would be perfect for night fishing the bridge it seems with those lights on it, but we're not sure if they'll let us do that or not. We'd probably have to keep it out all night since there wouldn't be anyone to turn it back in to. I've also got a homemade underwater green light that works pretty well if we could get out there. The night fishing really sounds like fun. Fishing the pass also seems like a good thing to do. I would think it's pretty dependent on the movement of the tide. Is that true? If so, what are you looking for?

Chris,

If you want some great trout and red action go to the point just on the other side of three mile bridge, where the Boy on a Dolphin restaurant used to be. Carry you some live shrimp or siene out some mud minnows, the best time to be out there is right before or after dark. There are some chanel markers that mark a deeper chanel that runs up along the beach there as you make the turn and start heading south along the beach area past the toll booth plaza that's on the highway, up towards where that putt-putt golf place was. Be carefull in your boat, it can get shallow quick. Anyway, throw a live shrimp or mud minnow out there on the grass beds,about 18 - 20" under a corkand have fun. Thesmall lighted or flourescent corks work best after dark. You can also take some of themud minnows or fingermullet out towhere the channel starts dropping off from the shallow shores, anywhere along thebay headed towards Ft Pickens, let the boat drift with the current and drop your minnows down, letting them bottom bounce.You'll catch trout, flounder, shark,an occasional snapper or grouper, and unfortunatly hard heads. But it's all fun. It's coming up on that time of the year when you'll start seeing schooling fish down around the pass and Ft Pickens. If you don't know what a Mac Rig is, get one and learn how to use it. Let me rephrase that, "get some" and learn how to use them. Almost any of the fish that school around the pass will tear them apart. Blues, Mackeral, Bonita, lady fish. They are fun as hell to fish with.

Good luck,
