I'm headed over to Carrabelle later this week, going to look at some real estate for a possible vacation/fish camp. Taking the boat for a couple days of fishing too.
Anyone have any numbers of natural bottom areas? I've done fairly well in that area, need to up my game with some new areas. :thumbsup:

I don't have any numbers there, but go across and check out Dog Island. That place was eerie back in the 90's, might still be?

We slept in the boat a few years ago in the island's cove, but have never set foot on the island.

I had a place in Carrabelle for a few years, but tired of running 15 or 20 miles to get to 55 to 65 feet of water. I'm out of PCB now and in those depths in 3 to 4 miles out. That said there are some good deals there on real estate and the fishing can be good.
If you run out to K Tower there is some good hard bottom all around that area, the same is true if you run due south out of the pass toward O tower. There seems to be a good amount of bottom around many of the artificial reefs. A lot of the bottom is just "honey comb" with a number of holes and small ledges that dont really show up as having much relief. Best advice is when you mark hard bottom with fish give it a shot for enough time to get them turned on. I dont know if the storms have "moved" or covered up any of the numbers, but I'll look to see what I may still have over there and let you know.
Also, as Yellow Boat said the Fisherman's Wife puts some good food on the table. Really good folks too.

The storm blew some gags into the bay at the mouth of the Carrabelle River.

There is good bottom around most of the towers.
