a weekend trip is on deck!

i reside in NE florida and have fished every lake north of lake george.

my dad wants to take the trip farther south!

and recommendations?

he is terrified of stick marsh and navigating around it!

is it that dangerous?

i dont get the maps:)

can anyone name some hot hot locations south of george.

harris chain is out of the question, but he threw in suwanne river and even varner in GA!

can anyone give me their opinion?

trying to make a memory with him

im thinking the memory of me catching a DD in stick marsh and him not doing so sounds good?

and stick farm information?

please help

PM me or whatever

thanks everyone

im curious about varner too, seeing randal makes me wonder

details about these locations and maybe maps?

that would be appreciated

i could not tell you if the suwanne river was south of george or not, but that he does not wanna go to ok, toho, kiss, walkinwater, harris, or any of those.

stick marsh is looking good though

Stick Marsh is not that bad.  The only danger is if you run on plane where others arent and you wouldnt do that in any lake you didnt know really.  I expected it to be a huge mine field, it wasent.  I boated out there my first time in the morning before sun up...no big deal.

Stickmarsh is really not that bad.  You just have to use some caution.  I have only fished it twice but have only hit 1 stump (at idle) on the north end of the Stick Marsh and been hung on a stump (with the TM) once on the south end of Farm 13.  If you are looking for possibly the trip of a lifetime, then I would opt for the Stickmarsh.

I fished stick marsh on a windy day and felt like a pinball in a pinball machine when drifting.  Maybe on a calm day I would have hit fewer trees.

YOu will be fine in stick marsh, just use caution, and only run in the canals and wear your pfd it can get really rough on a windy day. DD stick marsh bass, see avatar pic.

Exactly.

The worst of the stick marsh is Pinball Alley along the southern shore.

If you've ever fished the stumpfields of Rodman, you know the drill.

Look on west wall: "Fishermen's shack" draw a diagonal line to the se corner, "pump head"

South of that line: IDLE

Use common sense out here and you will be fine.

Yeah it was at the camp ground!  Is there a better place to put in?  without dealing with so much grass, and a stumpfield.

I was trying to stay away from using my motor so as to not hit a stump, and the trolling motor was getting clogged up left and right! Next time im just gonna run my motor through it!
