Default Re: Florida in March

One of the best 1/2 days of fishing I've ever experienced was wading on the bay side of Lover's Key State Park in SW FL. I've saltwater fished my whole life, but was down there on business in April. I didn't fly fish then, but I had a light spinning rod with me. My buddy and I caught trout, redfish, snook and jacks on swimtail shad until we just got tired of reeling them in! We didn't land any giants, but they were there, they also knew where the channel marker was that we were throwing to, and would make a bee line for it when hooked. I thought to myself then- If I had had a canoe or kayak it would have even been better if that was possible. As it was we fished until the park ranger had to come down to the beach and hollar at us to get out because the park was closing. Great day.
