I'll be down for my annual trip to St. Aug. I only have a few spots I have confidence in and one is way in the back of a creek in a foot of water. Ya think that is worth the paddle or should I focus on the deeper water?

To me the best part of kayak fishing is getting back into those skinny places.

I'd do it.

Since your time is limited in Saint Augustine. I would try the SALT RUN ramp, fish the docks North from when you launch typically it's anywhere from 1 to 5 feet. I think with that water depth you'll be able to catch something. I was just at SALT RUN about 3 weeks ago and hit four nice trout. I had good success fishing an in/out pattern between the docks. Just a suggesting, good luck.

Concerning salt run, if you want reds there, I'd hit up the ocean side shore and fish that as the tide is rising over the warmed shallow water and oysters. The docks are fun at night for trout if they have lights.

Thanks, and yup, I had a couple good strikes fishing that very tide on that side once, but never hooked up. I've been in salt run probably 3 times and don't recall doing well, but you guys have me thinking about giving it another try.

Funny, I've been thinking of trying Salt Run for a while. I think, depending on weather, I'll try on Mon 15th. I guess the best way in is at Lighthouse Park ramp ? Always looking to explore new areas. Did Steinhatchee last week and got PB red & trout, great day.

betoweb, where did you launch at Steinhatchee? I'm going there tomorrow to do some scalloping.

That thread is pretty old so he may not answer. One place in Steinhstchee is rocky creek which is just south of town.Another is just north of town called Havens cove park. It’s right on the gulf.

We scallop steinhatchee last weekend couldn’t see your hand in front of your face the vis was so bad, got about 50 all day with 4 experienced people. It’s hard when you have to get you mask 10” from the scallop to get one. I’ve been at least once a year for the last 10 years and that was the worst I’ve ever seen it. Looked like St. John’s river water.
