 You can do a self directed photo adventure, or with some our local guides by boat or local trails. Bugs have not been bad this year and Winter weather is usually great for birds and gator viewing. Weather conditions are improving for trail hiking. lots of wildlife viewing is accessible from a roadside pull off like H.P. Williams Wayside, Janes Scenic Drive and Loop Road. We have seen some awesome birds just north of us on route 29 where there is plenty of safe off road parking for gator viewing,canal fishing or watching the birds.

Fishing Reports

Fall 2011

Weather conditions and water temps have improved. More snook are being reported. Many are smaller sizes which makes the future catch look promising. We have recently had reports of some exceeding 30"and up to 18# by our coastal waders.

Reds are continuing to provide some great action and nice meals. Our local restaurants will prepare your catch with all the trimmings if you clean. Tarpon are showing up and a few 100# have been reported. Most of the catch has been with artificial baits although plenty of live bait is available. A few nice mackeral have shown up on the outer island areas sometimes with the trout.

We have seen more and larger mangrove snapper this season.  A beautiful 45 # permit is displayed by photo on our wall in the office thanks to George and Rob the photographer.This was a late summer catch off shore.

Anglers please call us for our reduced rates for September and November. October is booking well and we would like the opportunity to provide great accomodations and service with the best access to the Gulf and backcountry.

Our marina was just dredged with 6 feet of water in the basin. We can accomodate boats up to 26 feet with adequate notification. Our docks now have electric and water for your convenience.

We wish all our loyal customers a prosperous Fall and appreciate your patronage. Two tournaments this September.
