Florida Bound in 2003
I've recently learned that we're going to be making the move to the Ft. Myers area sometime around the end of this year. Looks like I'll have to stock up on my assortment of flats patterns during the next few months. What's the fishing like in the region south of Tampa/St. Pete through Naples? Anyone have any advice for decent places or patterns on that stretch of ocean? I prefer to remain in-shore, just suits my style better. Also, and I hate to admit this, but I don't handle off-shore water very well, which is pathetic considering I'm a marine scientist, but what can you do? Spending the next two weeks in the Lower Keys chasing fish on the flats. Will post pics as I get them; looking forward to fishing a new mantis shrimp pattern I've been working on. TIA for any suggestions!
