What he said about the day time walking. I've always done my gigging in Holden beach, from the old pavilion to the east end of the island. Any restrictions now a days with lights during turtle season?There are all sorts of areas that you can walk in shallow water at all the locations you mentioned. I don't like walking alot unless you have time in the daytime to walk it because eventually you'll step into that soft sinking mud. You could use the jonboat to move around to the islands around the ICW and find some sandy areas and oyster bars to wade.
