Blow down creek  

26-51-009    82-09-436

This is a very small creek, as we were exploring it two big fish smacked the side of the boat,
 stupid fish yes, full tilt bam right into the side while I was trying to turn around
Blow down creek averages 20 feet wide. you can see the dark water here which shows the deeper parts.

Springtime Snook fishing for big snook should be very good here,
fall early winter this is one of the creeks that stacks up with red fish.
years ago this was a favorite stop net place for commercial fisherman hunting schools of mullet.

This is the entrance to Blow down creek, very hard to tell anything is there at all.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As you get closer the creek mouth starts to appear.

 

 

Navigating small creek can be challenging, A smart boat operator know you can not see what's in the water ahead you, So get someone to sit on the bow.
keep in mind even slow it is easy to knock some one off the bow, if the motor hangs on an unseen object below the surface, sitting is best.

 

 

 Here are some random shots of the creek just to give you an idea of what it is like. In several spots the creek narrows because of the blow downs to lees than 10 feet.

 

 

This is just before we left the creek. This was one of the hardest turns to make.
So take this one at dead slow and be prepared to use the branches to make this turn.
