Where on the west coast of FL? That's a lot of water to cover.
General comment - since you are a beginner, I suggest focusing on unweighted streamers rather than on the various crab flies available. The crab flies, and many of the shrimp patterns, are designed for use by people sight-fishing for reds and other species. Streamers will allow you to get out there and practice (practice is essential!) and still catch some fish.
