Anna Maria Island at Christmas

I am sure you gents get asked this to the point you want to throw up your hands and yell at your monitors but will ask anyway.  I am heading to Anna Maria Island Christmas week and will be bringing an #8 and #9 rod to do a little fishing.  I know it's not prime time but certainly there is something willing to eat a fly.  Not looking for any secrets but guidance, in fact I may take a couple of half days to get a guide.  I will have access to Leftis Key on the south end, beaches and canals.  What can I expect, if anything.  Looking for size and color.  I have heard pink is good for Redfish and heavy pink clousers may rile up some pompano, if they're around.  I have various DT's and other deceiver type streamers for whatever will eat 'em.  Below is the sample of some of the bugs I have.  A little beat up from other trips but you get the idea.

Thank you
