A few more woodies on Chactawhatchee River.

Postby Dajowi » Sun Jan 14, 2007 9:41 pm

In case any of you fellow Choctawhatchee river guys are wondering this morning was a little better that the past week or two. Myself and a few buddies limited on woodies and took a few hooded mergansers. Most of the action was in tight flooded areas with floating acorns. I guess they're feeding here. Anyone else seen anything south of hwy 20?

Where do you guys launch a boat on the C river? I don;t have a motor, so I don't want to launch in the bay and paddle/row forever and a day ...

We launch at black creek lodge but you can't paddle through there. It is to far to the duck holes. The bottom end of that river is full of Gators as well. If you try to paddle you will probably end up in the bay.

Cool -- thanks for the info -- can you hunt gators there as well? I saw that advertised after I moved here -- that would make a cool trophy for when I move back to Colo ... I think I'd be the only one on my block to have one ... :getdown:

oh yeah you can gator hunt theree but only during season and you have to pull a permit it used to be by lottery but now it is first come first serve they only issue so many and they are like a couple of hundred dollars but I think more than one person can hunt off of it but im not 100 % sure on that.
