Default 10,000 islands, which flies for everglades in december?

I might have a chance to go backcountry fishing and camping in the 10,000 islands area of the everglades around christmas. Looking for fly recommendations (sizes/patterns/colors) to tie up before the trip.

We would be mostly on a boat. The owner is a big light tackle angler, but I will be throwing flies.

I assume we will be going for Sea trout, snook, maybe black drum or redfish?

For last summer I tied gurglers, deceivers, clousers, crabs, crazy charlies, po*n punchers, etc. in a variety of sizes, colors, and weights I assume many of these will work fine.

I have a 7wt and a 11wt to bring. Obviously a 8 or 9 would be nice, but that is not an option at this time. I'm hoping we can find some bigger fish along the shoreline/shelf to use the 11wt.

Anyone with 10,000 island area care to give some advice!?
