SKIP THE TURKEY TROT

“I don’t really do the ‘Turkey Trot’ thing but I’m sure there are runs down here. Instead, we go fishing up the Intracoastal.”

“It’s easy to jump on a charter or a few charters on different days. The water is so still. Not even a ripple. This time of year? We go for trout and redfish in the Bay. Grouper moves in a little closer off shore. It’s not 100 degrees with the sun beating down on you. It’s a great guys trip when the family is all together.”

“Or, another fun thing to do is to book a charter and go on a day trip. The captains are usually a little slower in the Fall and Winter and they can take your family down to Apalachicola for lunch or to Panama City Beach for shopping. You can tie up in 30 minutes for something a little different for everybody.”

Zach, owner of No Worries Vacation Rentals, recommends fishing and boating as a fun, holiday family activity. Check out father son duo Captain Bobby or Captain Wade Guilford at Break-A-Way Charters or Captain Trey at Premier Sportfishing Adventures. (Oh, and we do actually have a Turkey Trot close by for those interested.)

FISHING IS IN OUR BLOOD

“We grew up vacationing here. We camped in Apalach and in 1968 we found St. Joseph Peninsula State Park. Right after that we built a house in Indian Pass. As soon as the house was built, we came down every weekend.”

Well, I just took a sunset cruise out and saw 12 dolphins. The night before we saw 24. They feed at night so dusk is the best time to catch them. We have a tidal current that goes out of the Intracoastal and the dolphin like to follow that.

“I’m always taking in strays. We have a resident dolphin in the Bay. Wild dolphins live in pods. Even though this sounds bad, dolphins kick the big male dolphins that are ready for reproduction out of their existing pods to go join another pod. This behavior keeps the genes from bottlenecking.”
