Aug 1 -8 trip

I am staying in Bokeelia for a week and have rented a 22' Pathfinder from Monroe Canal Marina (any known issue with these rentals).  I have also hired Capt. Alex Fischer to go out on my 1st day to get a refresher since its been a few years since I have fished the PI area.  This is a solo trip with the exception of a buddy or 2 coming over for a day so I might have an opening if anybody wants to join me on the boat at no cost.

I know to fish the beaches early for Snook, the passes on strong tides (full moon is the 1st), and mangroves on rising tides etc.  Also considering hand lining a Jewfish (yep, I'm old) at the Phosphate Docks.

Are Tarpon still on the beaches or will this be a blackwater thing now?

Any help, hints or tips are greatly appreciated.
Member since 2001 but this **** format makes me look like a newb.:huh
