    FL>Pine Island Sound>7-9 June 2013 - Kayak and Camping on Picnic Island

    I am planning a weekend camping trip to Picnic Island off the southern end of Pine Island and wanted to see if anyone here would be interested in coming along. It's a really easy paddle out to a primitive island for a day and a half of hanging, fishing and relaxing. If there is anyone that is interested let me know and I will use this as a planning thread.

    Wow! I used to live in the Keys; brings back memories.
    Sorry I can't make this trip. Be careful hanging from those Australian pines down there. They will uproot in a heartbeat!

    Yup, you have to watch what you string up to on these barrier islands. I will be making a day trip on the kayak in a few weeks to scout a spot with good trees, most likely on the southern end of the island to avoid the boaters stopping for day picnics, etc.

    I may be interested. Checking with my friend who lives down there to see if I can get him to go. He has the kayaks and I have the hammocks.

    Mike stated the "keys". Is this in the Florida Keys or Sanibel Island near Ft Myers?

    Any idea how bad the bugs will be? It seems like it is fly/noseeum/skeeter season by then...

    Also, how far will the paddle be? I've got a gimpy arm right now and that's a bit far in the hot season for my taste... but I'm temped

    I found it with a little googlefoo
    It is near Ft Myers/Cape Coral. Pine Island is just north of Sanibel Island. Picnic island is south of Pine Island just offshore SouthEast of the island.
    Very cool looking little island.
