Description: Saturday morning, we will be ferried to St. Joe’s Island aboard the M/V Skimmer for a day of skinny water kayak & wade fishing in the Fence Lake area. The
Skimmer can carry 12 fishermen and their kayaks. About 3:00 pm, the Skimmer
will return to pick us up at the mouth of Fence Lake and take us back to the dock.
