I'm pretty sure that most people would advise you NOT to fish the ICW in a small jon boat....

But I remembered reading this a while ago, so I'll pass it on. It's geared more towards kayaking, but it has some information about boat launches too.

Sound like good info. I too would not be too keen on the ICW in a small boat.... Another option is to launch at Blue Water Point Marina on Oak Is. and just scoot across the ICW into the Lockwood Folly River. My first thought is the river is much better fishing than the ICW and around the inlet.

You will be fine in the Jon boat around Lockwood but DO NOT take it in the ICW. You can put in at Varnamtown and go up the river, lots of good fishing spots up the river.
