That'll be fun! I launch from the Braden River Boat ramp. Which is 4 miles West directly off SR.64 (exit 220b if your coming from the south) There's only one main NO WAKE and that's about 1/4 miles long. That's by the Green Bride and the Railroad tracks that cross. (Marine is close to the channel) this is getting towards the mouth....
Now back east on the river Once you get on the west side of I-75 (east of boat ramp) the river starts to open up wide. I like to go up river since its always calm, lots of curves and very scenic. Once I take a ride up there ill shoot back west towards the mouth of the river. Where we can shoot over to Tera ceia bay (short idel to no wake 1/3" miles) through the canal that pass's by Stinky Dave's bait shop.
We could also cruise to Egmont key which is about 3 miles out from the river.
Than we could also shoot over to to the inlet of Bradenton and Anna Maria island.
There's also tons of great places to eat on the water.
Yesterday when I went out. I went to the mouth to see what was going on. It was a little choppy so I turned back around. Than I went up the Braden riden a tad just to explore. From there I went up river cause my buddy was dyin to ride so I went up near the Fort Hammer ramp n just B.S'd around till my friend met me at the marina at my work (Waterlefe Golf and river club). Then we road ALL the way out to the mouth to Emerson point. Just back n forth up the river. All spirited driving and had fuel left..
This was at Emerson Point

ok, i'm in, and I can bring 3 ski's total, sounds fun, will pm you some info and we'll proceed from there and then repost when we can schedule something in the next two weeks., its a 2 hour drive but we need a change in scenery down here in Ft Myers, and we like River Rides we have plenty of gulf access down here already.

Take the "Secret Run". If the day is windy and the tide is high it is one of the best rides in all of Florida. BUT you will run most of the time in No Wake Zones. The area is not patrolled and just use common sense. There are few if any houses so nobody really cares. http://goo.gl/maps/SLly
BTW that little yellow star is my house. I can't go Sunday (Superbowl Party).
