lovetheduck - rummya pretty much answered your question for scouting the interior. The initial big game season is by quota permit, they open the gate by the dam on Thursdays before the 3 day hunt throughout the big game season. You can drive all through the interior during that time. The interior ponds do not require a boat, but some do have a soft bottom, so waders are a must. As for the lake, daily draw permits on Wed & Sat. You need a boat to hunt the lake. Set up where you want, but be courteous to the other hunters. Get their early for a good spot. Hal normally opens the ramp around 0330...well at least he did when i hunted it. If you have any more questions, let me know buddy. Send me a PM and i'll try to help you out.

You can only hunt Guana lake (Ponte Vedra lake) on Wed and Sat and must have a daily permit from the station at 6 mile landing ramp. You must get your permit first, then go and launch if you wish to launch from up there. The shopping center there will tow your truck if you park there. DO NOT hunt the lake without that permit. They had some wardens bust a lot of guys sneaking in early without permits on hunt days from the north end of the lake. It can be a hefty fine, might as well get the daily permit and save yourself a ticket!
