Florida Bay

Tip of the week 

If fish dont show on the flats with warm water, grab a 6wt, some sinking line, a 9ft leader with a bite tippet of 20-30lb leader a a bait fish pattern you like like a deceiver. Find current flow, that could be a flat edge, a channel, lake or basin where the tide is moving good. I look for bait fish movement or bait being busted by fish and start casting. Strip fast in shallow water and slow in channels. Its like Christmas you don't know what you will pull up from the depths and remember to strip-set on the eat don't raise the rod!
