I am comming down and camping in Big Lagoon State park in May. I was planning on fishing on Big Lagoon and saw the lake in the park Grand Lagoon. Has anyone fished there or is it a waste of time to try and fish it. Any advise will be appreciated. ON Big lagoon can you launch from Johnson Beach Road just west of Ft McRee. thanks.

If your camping in BLSP, you can launch right there.
Or for another entrance fee you can launch from Johnson Beach Road if you want to drag/carry 30 yards to launch further east than @ BLSP.

I think the "lake" you see in GL is not much more than a navigable storm water retention pond connected to salt water.

True. I grew up in Seaglades (the neighborhood just east of Grand Lagoon). There's nothing to fish there other than maybe a few pier lights. Done good with the lights between there and the first condo to it's east (Wingate). Pulled in a monster red at the condo pier on a yak. Pretty deep water and a good bright light at the end.

Thanks, I just saw it on the map and was wondering. I will be flyfishing but will have a spinning rod with me just in case. I plan on fishing early am to 8-9 am. any other suggestions for fishing the area.

lots of good grass flats on the south side (barrier island). I was out there yesterday testing a boat and saw a lot of juicy looking deep water along shoals and points.

All of these flats are easily accessible launching at the lagoon park. I myself would park and launch where the two yellow dots are, easy 50 yard pull to the water right onto a real nice grass flat.

There is a kayak launch just yards to the east-- can't miss it as it is adjacent to the parking lot. Same on JB, take your first left as you enter the park. Better than trailblazing the dunes.
