RE:Florida in Late Feb

Feb is a little too early for bonefishing. Your only shot would be in the keys which is a 7-8 hr drive. Honestly the bonefishing is tuff down there anyway. My suggestion would be to go to either South Tampa or Mosquito Lagoon/Indian harbor for reds. It is really great fishing and the reds are huge (18-40 inches) They tail and school like bones. They fight alot like stripers and really bull dog you. Not to mention they are beautiful. I would go with South Tampa. There is less presure there and there is a chance for the occasional snook.
