The more the merrier! I would love to have a large showing of people! Get a good group photo, have fun, then people become more than screen names!

Of course, I keep 2 gallons in my hull at all times just on case SHTF, but the nice thing is the paddling is all in a circle so of one of is or all of us get exhausted early it isn't a huge paddle back in, I think no more than 3 miles back to the parking spot from any point we are fishing. We are not going to do a 7 mile out and back. We will all be safe, plus my wife would kick my ass if she thought I was being unsafe!

Have any of yall put that many miles on the water in a day yet? Thats CRAP ton of water to cover. Good luck guys, thats a HELL of a trip, I sure couldnt do it! Be safe out there!

FYI, the Casino Rubble has long been covered up. Occasionally it will show but its usually covered up. I wouldnt worry about going that way if I were you, launch from Pickens and hit up all of the reefs out there. Should be a great king bite out there!

Thanks for the heads up on the casino rubble! That will change the trip a little haha, no worries, and I will look into the FT Pickens launch idea since casino is gone, thanks again'

Launch at the second parking lot in Pickens. You should be able to hit the pier rubble, 3 barges, mayor lane and the RFRA Pyramids. Fourteen miles with out a tail wind the whole is a bit ambitious for even experienced yakkers in a typical fishing kayak.

There are some good kings out there right now! Maybe even luck into a dolphin or something.

I've done a 12mile trip before so a 14 isn't much more and my jobs training specifically trains for sustained energy. If you re work the plan let me know , I'll still be out there at 5 I anyone needs help making kings rigs or anything. Also if you have a new yak and need some leashes let me know and I'll make a few this week and bring them.

I didn't mean completely redo the path I just meant cut out the first bottom fishing spot since the rubble is covered, I'll put out the spots with coordinates and the path traveled to each one and the time line again this evening when I sit down with my computer and plot it all out! I'll be at the same spot at 5am with the intention of starting at 615-620 which is when it starts to get light!

If the weather stays good I'll be there. I may be a little late so don't wait. I'll catch up if so. The spot you are talking about starting from, can I park with a trailer there? If not I will have to put in at Langdon beach inside Ft.Pickens.

Oh you have plenty of room to park a trailer, the entrance is at the far end and 80% is roped off but the parking lot is huge.

I've got 2 first timers coming with me and I know they won't be able to handle 14miles so I'll probably sit back with them however I'll still have hello shots and drinks and a bait tube to try out. And just like before if you need some leashes let me know.

I have NO issues cutting it down to 4-6 miles, I'll look through my gps and find a easy route! I could always use rod leashes, how much for one?

For leash you will just need to buy the fasteners which are like $1.76 at lowes and then whatever you want to clip your leash too I'll take a picture so u can see what I'm talking about.
