I am going to have to respectfully differ with some of what I have been reading on this post. Actually I'm not saying it is wrong as far as it goes, its just not the whole story. Back in the late 60s & 70s I used to get to the keys & back country a couple times a year. We had a lot of fun with baby tarpon and it was more like bass fishing than the flats sight fishing previously described. (then in the mid 70s I got the West Coast mega tarpon bug and did that for a while) I haven't been down there in 20 years but I can't immagine that the small and baby tarpon fishing isn't still to be had.
And buy the way, when you are in the Mangrove "creeks" you are frequently protected from the wind and can enjoy casting conditions when the flats are howling.
Lots of feathers,
