First time taking my boat down there. Renting a house with a short trip to the river. Wondering if the canals are worth spending some time in or should I just head to the river or pine island sound. Bringing down a G3 1860 gatortough with a jet so the Gulf side is not happening. Mainly looking for Snook and Tarpon but would like to catch some sheepshead or snapper for a dinner one night. Have been down there many times but all shore fishing at the peir, blind pass, the beach or ding.
