        We anchored on the north side on 11/8/2009 for the first time. We arrived late in the day right at sunset. Depths were pretty much as charted and holding seemed good. It was a quiet anchorage that night, but it could be less if traffic passes by in ICW. We had a good night but were fogged in for a couple of hours in the morning.

        We usually anchor a couple miles further south and east in the vicinity of Lutz Creek. You will usually find crab pots in all these anchorages.

        Buck Island is on our list of favorites because we carry a crab pot and always catch some when we anchor here. We were here 9/10/06, 5/19/07, 8/31/08 and will be back soon.
