We have too much water here, my woodie hole thats usually a mile walk is a min boat ride with the water 5ft high the whole way but it was interesting motoring around the woods and looking at the tops of pine trees stickin out of the water a couple inches.

God I wish, Leon County still has very little water, Jackson is way down with Porter Sink having opened up, Iamonia is still a prairie, Micc is lower than its been in a while and Carr is the same way...gonna be making some coastal trips this season for sure.

3 to 5 feet higher...more hydrilla and lily pads. More gators. last year i enjoyed ditching the boat and standing in the mud. This year will be leg cramps in my POS boat...

Thats what i would of thought till i saw it and it was opposite. The land that use to be muddy now has water over it...lily's and hydrilla have popped up. I know what your saying, deeper part of the lake but those lily's have grown to compensate the rise in water...

Compared to what? Haven't run it in 2 weeks but it was bad then, and driving by last week it didn't look any better...a buddy ran it last weekend and said it was the worst it's been.

Talked to and FWC officer on Thursday who was out there in an airboat. He said it was really bad, evenguys with surface drives and longtails would have a hard time scootin around.
