Not looking for your spots just curious if it is worth dragging the boat 3 hours to check it out for myself.

Pool A is just south of 60 right? If so had a buddy hunting that area the last few years and he always tags out pretty quick.

Pool A is south of SR 60 but it is part of Zone C and doesnt open until mid September. Zone A is the tract between SR 70 and SR 78. It can be confusing with the way the different Pool's and Zone's are layed out.

there is water in the new main river channel. the old river run is pretty much dry right now. I know all the marshes from Micco Bluff up past the Avon Park Bombing Range are dry.

Ran from the lock up to Micco two Saturdays ago with the MRS. and her dog. Water was good in the marshes everything is just over grown like crazy. As for the dog I didn't know what to feel...Poor Fella. He seemed to enjoy it though...

Wife bought them. I think this is where she got them from.

Also the dog ear muffs came from here...

http://www.safeandsoundpets.com/index.html

The muffs are were its at. I made the mistake of running one time with cotton in my ears when I was taking a bunch of people out because my fourth set of muffs was on a friends boat cause he only had two pair. Long story longer cotton doesn't do much of anything when there's warp drive out back. MY ears were killing me after just 15 minutes! I couldn't imagine being the dog after two hours of running!
