Default V bay ?

When you leave intercostal city launch going out 4 mile cut, along the way to the right looks to be some sort of weirs and also looks to be some in onion lake. Are they open to be fished? Just trying to scout out some spots with the map.
I have heard about the GW camp but don't know where it is. And know that some spots around it are closed at times.

Trying to put a trip together Friday evening if I get a chance.

No weir inside 4 mile cut,there is several inside redfish point. Onion lake is silted in,don't go in there unless you have a surface drive. You can still fish the canal going to the lake but that's about it. Mostly catfish in that area.

The top marker is 4 mile cut and the bottom is the game warden's camp

Is 4 mile cut just the opening to the bay from the canal?

Those are not weird they are terraces. Strips of grasses planted to prevent erosion. No fish in onion lake but the reds will get round the terraces on west side of 4 mile cut

No, 4 mile cut is from the mouth at the bay to the intracoastal

Like montauk said no weirs off 4 mile cut. There is a reef just to the left of 4 mile and all the bank where the blue line is drawn is good for reds ImageUploadedByTapatalk1373344424.910717.jpg

Yep hard west wind is suppose to be blowing Friday though, so I figured it would be a little less choppy and cleaner where I drew the line.

Good. Don't think my little bass tracker can handle the waves on the open water.

I appreciate the help.

I've been told to fish the back side of the berms along 4 mile cut. How tricky is it to get back there through the mouth of what's marked on this map as the vermilion?

That area is super shallow once it opens to little bay. If you want to try the area I would idle to make sure you don't get stranded on a mud flat. I used to run that area in a tunnel hull and would still almost get stuck on occasion.

It also depends on what kind of boat you will be in too.

Just Motor down and troll if you can. Don't take someone's word for it because things change overnight. I say troll if it ain't far which looks to be the case

Better to fish the mouth of 4 mile cut, near the channel markers. The little chevrons on the west side of 4 mile can be treacherous, and not worth the risk. You can also catch croakers with dead shrimp on the bottom of the north entrance to Lake Fearman. As you round Red Fish point and head towards the game warden camp, if you travel about 200 feet from the bank idle down and look at your depth finder. As it goes from 4 feet to 1.5 feet, you are right on top of Redfish Point reef.
