Dumb Question.

Post by BlkHwk841 »

Ok, so I know there is no such thing as a dumb question but. How do I find out where and if I can run my airboat after dark? I search but don't see to much about it. Don't really wanna try it and get busted.lol I'm in Tallahassee and will be out as much as possible after the 8th. Any place up here to do a little night rid at. Or Ocala area?

Best thing to do is get with other airboaters in your area... And if that fails, get with the local DNR (Game Warden) and he will surely assist in explaining any restricted areas....

Good luck and hope that there are NO restricted areas for ya...........

You can put in at Orange lake. It's in Citra 10minutes north of ocala, you can run all night long just stay out of Lake Lochloosa after 7:00. I don't even think you can get into Lochloosa from orange via Cross Creek it's to low. But Orange Lake is some good running @ Night.

This is confusing as heck !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If Orange lake for the most part SEEMS to be mostly in Marion County why the heck is it subject to Alaucha County A -hole rules. Citra is in Marion County-- THe Town of Orange Lake is in Marion County ---- Macintosh is in Marion County. so what the heck gives with the ALaucha County Shitz

the boat ramp is in marion county but as soon as the boat is in the water you are out of marion county.
I know this sounds wrong but this is straight from captain EASON gfc.

I'm confused also. You mention Tallahassee, then say Ocala area. You can ride anywhere around here at night, there are no curfews.....(YET) :roll:

tally area has a few lakes that are okay with evening rides. there are no curfews that i know of in
Tally but wonders never cease. Wakullla has a curfew for sundays in dickson bay, (bottoms road-panacea) but other than that, good rides and high tides.
do it right or dont do it at all!!

The creek between Loosa and Orange is grown over big time with lots of gummy boat eating black mud on each end, It could be done with a super bad boat but it would not be a pleasant ride :(

Wakulla (the co south of leon) has some of the strictest ordinances in the state. You cannot ride from sunset to sunrise! and on Sundays!
