    I’m in Crestview Fl, my son broke up with his girlfriend and hurt some friends.
    He is really down. He has suffered with depression in the past. I rather not take him shooting, which is my pastime. I was thinking of taking him fishing instead. Can any fellow members recommend a freshwater fishing holes in the Crestview,Milton, Niceville area? Bluegill or Crappies would be fine.
    Thanks all

    There are / was ? a few fresh water lakes in the Munson area, you will need a boat with a trolling motor because the use of gas power [outboards] are not allowed or oar power..
    You mean he physically attacked some people ?

    Gills will be your best bet in that area. But, I don't have a specific spot to suggest, particularly not knowing about whether a boat.

    If no boat and you just want to keep it simple, there are some small lakes on Eglin that are pretty easily accessible. Make sure you have all your permits and understand range access tho.

    +1 for Doug & Allie's at Leon Brooks Hines Lake. It's in Alabama, but really close to Crestview. They sell anything you need, including licenses. If you're a non resident, Alabama has a state lake only license much cheaper than a regular non resident license, too.
