We anchored in the Wahoo River south of St. Catherine’s Sound just off the AICW last February and heard the same monster sounds. My wife got no sleep that night!

We hear those rumbling sounds all around during mating season here in Florida – mostly April and May. It would be unnerving if you’d never heard it before and didn’t know! The big guys can really belt out a roar!

oh my….glad I’ve got an aluminum dinghy, not an inflatable…

We anchored here on 4/8/2012. We dropped right over the 9 ft mark on the chart and the hook grabbed quickly. The charted depths are acurate. Deep side to side. Unnerving ‘monster sounds’ from shore in the middle of the night (cows snoring, I presume).

April is alligator mating season….noises you heard were gators bellowing!

We are anchored on Big Tom Creek off the Bear River, just around the first turn to the northeast in 15 ft of water just past low tide. Plenty of swing room and nice views of Ossabaw Island. Aside from an occasional small powerboat, the only sounds are the birds and the dolphins in the creek.
