Choctahatchee bay can produce divers. Scout there and get a layout boat. Google Earth is a good tool to use when you come to a new area. Look at the rivers and bays. There are lots of "Public Land" around you. Hope this helps.

I'm not familiar with those areas you mentioned. But over the next month, with some time on the water and a good pair of binoculars, you can see what's there. Good luck.

Choctahatchee has a lot of wood ducks later in the season. Choctahatchee bay has divers. Point Washington is hit or miss. Gulf Island Sea Shore can hold birds but you need a layout boat. Waterdogds gives you great advice. Scout these spots and best of luck to you. If you see me out there hollar at me. I have a black F350 and a GatorTrax boat.
