Anyone have any experience fishing this area? The wife and I recently purchased a small place on a river canal just south of Sopchoppy. Hoping to buy a boat to do some fishing both fresh and salt. Wife wanted to purchase vacant lot next door. This burned up most of boat budget. Thinking about the smallest Mako skiff. By the time I upgrade a little and add sales tax we are around 20k. I can scrape together maybe half that and finance the rest. One of my many questions is will a skiff that small be good for the area. Not planning on going offshore and it appears to be a lot of shallow water bays in the area. I have no knowledge of this area and what I should expect as far as water conditions. Any opinions or advice is welcome. Thanks.
