Hey guys, I am brand new here and Im from the south florida area. (Miami)
Next weekend, Me and my Buddies are gonna take a road trip with kayaks and canoes up to that general misquito/ Indian river lagoon area strictly to fish, but we dont know which one that we are better off fishing, we have 2 days to fish and we want to maximize our fishing times in the best possible areas, were going for the areas legendary Gator trout and redfish (more after Redfish than anything).
Any help with anything is VERY much appreciated, all I need is a jumping off point..
I will post my whole trip on the forum and will give spots and details through PM to anybody who decides to help me and my buds, im from down south and go fish Marco Island every weekend, its all fun but when you do it 4 weekends in a row and only one snook is bigger than 29", you want to move to bigger and better things lol
Any help is appreciated!!
Put in at Eddy Creek (east side) paddle out of the bay, work the flats around the small islands southwest. Study google maps satellite images.
Keep moving slowly, quietly.
Sight fish. Cast to tails or vees (bigger vees are reds, smaller vees are mullet.)
Weedless flukes. Cals w jig heads, DOA shrimp, Gulp shrimp, live shrimp, cut mullet, ladyfish, finger mullet.
Ask Jumbo Shrimp if you can tag along.
