DIY in the keys

So I just bought my tickets to head down to FT. Lauderdale the second week in April for a week in the sun.

Michelle and I want to camp on one of the keys for a few days and I would like to get some fishing in. Not going to get a guide for flats fishing though. Figure I will save that for next winter when I am living in Boston and freezing my cajones off.

I seem to remember Juro saying something about some places to fish in some deeper water for cudas and the errant bone.

So where should I look at camping and what patterns should I bring? Will have a 8 and 9 weight. Thinking bigger baitfish patterns like decievers would work and some bonefish pattterns as well.

Lots of fish are not the focus as wading in warm water and getting a tan are the real focus of the trip.

I appreciate any tips you folks can offer.
