        Anchored here now, Tuesday the 22nd of October. We found the 15′ ish spot that was referenced. It’s on the NE side about 200′ yards away from the bridge near the marsh. We were (well, my husband Mike was) able to walk the dogs for a much needed stop.
        Yes, the traffic from the bridge is not serenity but it’s a nice spot. Only one abandoned sailboat here on the other shore near the docks – little Cat 22′ if I’m not mistaken.
        Men on the bridge (lower bridge) are fishing for trout after work. Current is quite strong it seems.
        That is the report from here. Day two of our adventure on our new boat – a 39′ Allied Mistress who’s been so well maintained it’s insane. God bless the prior owners, the Diechtrich’s from Canada!

        Anchored here to-nite and the depth is 24 plus. Could not find the 10 -15 ft water. Noise from the bridge but other wise OK.

        Dear Claiborne,
        We are back on board and moving south from Jacksonville. Tonight anchored off Pablo Creek on what you call “the one and only anchorage”. We couldn’t find those 10-15 foot depths you mention behind the three islands on the northern part of the creek. 20-35 ft was more like it close to low tide. We anchored in the northern mouth of the creek in 19 feet. There are a couple of old resident sailboats and a couple of moorings farther in behind the islands. Maybe we should have gone nearer to shore?

        A good stopover but make sure your hook is set – I dragged in February but had a soft landing next to the marsh and simply backed out. There is NO access except the south arm of the inlet – there is no water in the north part of the loop. Just go near the green marker and head east until you find a spot you like.

        I anchored at pine island loop on April 17 [2013] coming in from the south. Found 8 ft at low water and anchored to watch the birds. We use this anchorage routinely on our annual pilgrimage to the keys from Brunswick Landing Marina.

        When we arrived on 4/20/10, we found 3 sailboats and a trawler already there and all the prime spots taken. We took the last spot, out near the channel. Two other trawlers came later, looked for a spot, but finally gave up and proceeded back down river looking for an anchorage.
        Some shoaling at entrance. Buggy if winds are calm and especially if you turn lights on inside. Good holding.

        Good anchorage, but anchor farther in if your concerned about the occasional wake. Quiet, no traffic after sunset.

        Anchored here April 6, 2010 with seven other boats. Wind was East in afternoon about 15K but died down at night. No-see-ums in the morning. Nice peaceful anchorage

        In November 2009, we anchored in 12 feet of water with 7 other boats. Holding was very good and there were no mosquitoes. Wind was SE 10 to 12 kts.

        I preferred a spot just south of R54 and the small island. good holding, off the ICW although there is really no traffic at night so wakes arent’ an issue.
