Try to avoid the ICW at night. I used to do Galveston to Miami via the ditch. One of the parts I was uncomfortable in was that part going toward Apalachicola if it was dark. More freaking crab pots than I've seen anywhere and they'll be right in the middle just as they are on the sides. Many of them are dark colored (some even black - illeagle) and almost impossible to spot.

My two cents worth of advice - don't let the sun go down on you there and if you do have a good spotlight with somebody on the bow looking out for those pots.

It's a beautiful stretch! I wish I could do it again sometime. Have fun!!!
