The canoe guy that got lost and also had diabetes was glad to see that sometimes they will make an exception for airboats when Don Kirk went and pulled his butt out of there. Bruce Ward is trying to get them to allow frogging in the NPS areas. He has data that shows the frogs in those area have higher mercury levels because they are not harvested on a regular basis. The mercury is passed on up the food chain. What I really don't understand is that you can use a bass boat on the south entrance on Lox Road, but not an airboat.

:shock: Okeechobee Cur yes there is a boat ramp at 20 mile bend on the north end of conservation area #1 > A.R.M. Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge.

No airboat; Boating, fishing, and canoeing are permitted in the perimeter canal at both entrances please go use the million dollar ramp that sportsmen fought to keep after losing it for a few years because of STA 1 east
