    Default Need January advice


    Headed back down your way from nc again the second week in January. I usually go to the St. John's river but looks like it is out of commission. Thought about lake Talquin. Have never tried it. How would it be that early or would we be better off headed down to somewhere in central florida for a few crappie. Any recommendations are appreciated. I have fished lake george and stayed on the river above and below the lake but that is about the extent of my florida trips. Thanks in advance.

    There is a thread here that says the St.Johns is only 2ft higher then normal now, I am going in January but I'm sure there will be debris to contend with. I've fished Talquin a couple times and liked it a lot, but if you go be careful there is a lot of standing timber in unexpected spots.

    Looks like the Saint Johns River is looking better around Georgetown north so lake George, little lake George and Crescent should be close to normal. I’d call where you stay and see how there docks are as now that can be an issue with some. Good luck Need January advice

    He is right about standing timber in unexpected places. Just below the water line and in the middle of the lake. I enjoy fishing Talquin but it can be dangerous to run until you figure out where you can. My gps has a lot of dead heads marked that are just below the water line. When trolling I watch and mark them.

    Think we will try talquin since John’s is iffy. I like to striper fish too and looks like it is also a pretty good striper lake. Will post some pics when we come down. Thanks guys

    mid January is a long way off, something I know from experience is checking the weather in the panhandle before you decide would be suggested, in Jan and Feb it can get pretty dang cold there. I may leave early for Okeechobee and St.Johns, if the weather is good at Talquin we may fish there for a few days?
