Default Escribano Point/Grassy Point?

Will be making the trip from Virginia to Escribano Point WMA on Saturday. Camping at the Bayou Campground. Will be my first time there. Hope a minnow trap in the creek at night will provide some live bait.


Plan on canoe fishing the creek to the bay. Guess I will throw paddle tails in the creek. Maybe some top water real early.


No clue what to do if I end up taking the canoe into the bay. Guess throw the same stuff around any structure near the banks. Maybe use whatever the minnow trap catches.


Plan on spending a couple of days fishing the surf. Probably around Navarre. Have never caught a legal Pompano.


I only get to saltwater fish once or twice a year. Any advice would be appreciated. Any suggestions on where else to fish?


Thanks.

Watch out for the meth heads in 4x4s that ride the trails around camp at night

It’s a cool campground and looks fishy in the creek. I’d bet the trout and reds are around the mouth of the creek or just outside on the bars and drop-offs ou of the creek. Surf fishing is just getting started really. Fish around high tide if possible either side of it and use fresh or live bait. Have fun and I haven’t camped there just gone and checked it out, I know there’s a good number of black bears on that wma but guess there could be some meth heads too. I’d keep one chambered

Bring skeeter spray, the no see'ums can tote you off. But I'm thinking it may be cool enough to keep them away, but bring a can just in case.

Let's see.....gators, meth heads, bears, gators, no see ums, and more meth heads. Starting to sound like a big time.

If you can stand in your canoe safety sight fishing for reds is a blast. Ive done well with a 1/8 jig head and some gulp or live/dead shrimp. There spooky in the flats. Cast out in front and try to anticipate movement or sometimes it better to leave it and let them swim by and pick it up. If conditions fail due to wind which is likely you always have the shoreline. Carolina rigs, popping corks/ DOA makes a decent one will also get the job done. Lastly you can do some wading slinging artificials. Topwaters, flukes and husky jerk shads are a good start. Never camped there, but have hunted that are quite a bit. Eglin AFB patrols the access roads frequently, but not sure if they have jurisdiction in camp ground. Either way yall be alright. Hope that helps, good luck!

If you’re coming out this way to camp, I’d recommend preparing for 40 degree weather at night. Despite what some weather apps say, the nights over the past week have been in the high 30’s to the mid 40’s which isn’t enjoyable if you’ve spent the day in the mid 70’s. Also it’s Spring Turkey season this way so don’t be surprised I’d you run into a few turkey hunters where you’re fishing. Good luck and have fun.
