So, how did we get our name?
“Devils Elbow” was named after a treacherous channel, straight across the river, that existed prior to dredging of the Intracoastal Waterway by the Army Corp of Engineers. The bends of the channel were known to be “the devil” to navigate. This area continues to be famous, not for its twists and turns, but for its great fishing!
