Hey guys, this is my first year huntin' in the Tampa area (work schedule didn't allow for it last year)...moved here a year ago from Tallahassee, and I know less than nothing about huntin' the area . I plan to make a few long trips to Merritt Island this year, but that's about it. I would never, ever want anyone to think I'm trying to cyber-scout here...just need to know a few bodies of water that allow hunting so I can get out and scout. I'm willing to drive up to an hour and a half or so. Any help with lake names would be great. Also, I drive across the Courtney Campbell Causeway every day in the fall, and I see several groups of hundreds of bluebills and ringneck (maybe some others, too) rafted up on the bay...anyone know what the regulations are on hunting the bay? I have a layout boat, so I think I could probably slay a limit out there about as quickly as we used to in the big water on Lake Seminole. I've never been a big poster on this forum, although I read just about every thread....just want you to know I enjoy the stories and pics, and look forward to contributing more this year. Thanks a ton in advance.
