Local knowledge Ft Walton Beach to Panama City ICW

I am looking for local knowledge. We are sort of newbies to coastal sailing. We have a new (to us) Caliber 40 LRC. We are moving it from Ft Walton Beach to Panama City FL later this week via the two bays and ICW. I am a tad concerned about the east end of Choctawhatchee Bay and the west end of St Andrews Bay after reading the cruising guide. Is the navigation clear through those sections? How is the barge traffic in the ICW? How are the conditions on the ICW between those two bays? Any local knowledge would be appreciated. Things to watch out for, shoaling, general hints and suggestions.
Thanks in advance.
