Thanks for the advice. I've also heard the Grayton Beach state park is a good area where the lake sometimes flows into the gulf. Sounds like a fun place.
We are talking about Rob Cochran and he is tremendous. Matter of fact, I am going to call him and book my trip. He's put me on Cobia, Reds, Blues, Speckleds, Spanish, you name it. It's a blast. Glad to hear he is a buddy. I really like him and he is great with kids too. I highly suggest him for a guide in the Destin area.
Thanks Panhandle for the update. Hopefully the grass won't be so bad but it doesn't sounds like there is much hope!
