Default Alaqua Bayou

First trip in the new (to me) PA. Worked like a dream. I was able to cover much more water than I could in the Big Tuna. I spent some time getting everything rigged to my liking, finally hit the water around 1:30 p.m. I started drifting down the creek, fan casting and getting the hang of the PA. I met one guy who said he couldn't NOT catch any reds, but they were all under slot. So I thought it'd be a good day. But I couldn't find any fish that wanted to bite. Went into the bayou you the mouth of the bay, saw a pelican diving and re-diving, along with flipper, but again, no fish that wanted to come home for dinner. As the sun started going down, I worked my way back to the boat launch, mapping out the bayou and creek with the fish finder. All in all, while there were no fish, it was worth it to get the kayak squared away. Besides the nice guy I met at the launch, every other person I saw didn't have much luck either. The general consensus was that even though it's been a little cold lately, the slot ends and specks haven't made their way into the bayous and rivers yet. Not sure if that's the case everywhere else, but I thought I'd share for y'all.

Tight lines!

I haven't fished in there yet but I have considered it. Have you fished around the 331 bridge rubble? I always get something there....

I haven't fished there. I'm not familiar with that location. Is bridge rubble separate from the actual bridge?

I'm going to hit Alaqua again at some point. The creek gets real deep in some places, so I think it would be a good spot... unless some more experienced anglers tell me otherwise ☺

As far as the rubble, it is on the north west side of the 331 bridge. You can see it if you get over there, it feel in the water and has a section that is still connected to land. Everytime I fish it, I get decent reds, specks, or fflounder..... Just something to look into.

As far as the creek goes, I've never fished it either so I wouldn't be of much help.

Do you live in Freeport, SRB, or the Destin area by chance? If so, we should get up and do some kayak fishing one day when I'm in town from work. I'm home for two weeks at a time and always looking for someone to fish with.... I'm no pro by any means lol.

I'm actually over in the Niceville area, but "have kayak, willing to travel" definitely applies. I'm certainly not a pro either, so between the two of us I think we could def do some damage! When's the next time you're in town?

where do you put in to fish Alaqua Bayou?
I live in Santa Rosa Beach, have been taking my yak mostly into the gulf this year, but now that the water temp is dropping and pelagics are leaving I want to start chasing redfish in the bay. If you guys ever want a partner to fish with let me know
