We (the meetup FOCKER Florida Outdoor Camping and Kayaking-group) met at the Palma Sola Causeway in Bradenton and after a brief rain we paddled north from the launch. We had to portage through the shallow muddy areas a bit to get to the mangrove tunnels....then we went about 2 miles up a channel until we got to an area where a bald eagle had his nest...TURN back protected wildlife or $100,000 fine! We retreated adn tried a few other areas out. About 40 fockers there---nice paddle.
