I won't give away my specific places, but you can go in Navarre. It just takes longer for the flounder to get here when they return from the Gulf. I go in Navarre. Just look for structure. They love to wait near it so they can ambush fish. By structure I mean rocks, seawalls, docks, stumps, Seagrams beds (particularly the grass, sand border) and oysters. Also, the edges of points where the sand forms a slope is also good. And creek mouths. With that being said, in late fall, you will still want to go towards Destin or Pensacola because the fish bottleneck in the passes.

Also, I have posted a lot on my blog and there will be more to come. If you have not already checked it out go to imakemybeer.blogspot.com. Click on the fishing label to show only the posts about fishing.

That's Pretty darn LONG and you will be clanking them together with other people on the boat.

Yes I have heard of a situation where that kind of length was needed, but that guy had a screw-on addition.

My old ones were 10ft long and we clanked them together all the time.

My new ones are telescopic. 6ft to 12ft

The poles come from PenchaPenny pool supplies. (very reasonable)The adapters and threaded gigg heads are made locally/[Pensacola by ruggedmetal.com. Choppedliver on the gulfcoastfishingconnection.com. Best I've ever used.

Well thanks again for the replays, I went out last night to Navarre beach went to a spot where I slayed the spec trouts lasts summer, no flounder no trout no fish! I am patient however, my son and I ended up on a sand bar found bait and lots of signs "divots in the sand " which appeared to be where flounder may have been. A friend of mine said they probably al left that area by the time I got there do to the tide change . I launched at 10 p.m. And stroked the icw until 4 am. Of course had an awesome time with my son but once again left with an empty cooler. I just want to see a baby anything if I'm searching in the wrong areas please help! Destin Pensacola perdido I don't know where to go next, could use a prayer and a little help.
