Sounds awesome Bill. I know if I was going down there I'd be checking into where the peacock bass are - have you all thought about fishing for them?

Only from reading on forums, I recall that the Myakka Minnow is a pretty effective fly...wish I had more to offer.

Good luck!

Oscars are in most of the freshwater canals. I really, really, would like to see a picture of you with a dead Burmese Python. Don't fall out of the boat. I have only fished the saltwater side twice. Once from Islamorada in January and once from Marco Isalnd in August. From Marco Island we fished the Ten Thousand Islands part. No matter where you go it will be fun.

Sounds like a great trip Bill
You can go to the dark side too
Better to have it and not need it. Than need it and not have it.

Sounds like a great adventure. A Stiltsvile Shrimp under a big strike indicator if you have current.

Flashdancers work very well on snook, baby tarpon, redfish, and trout. Crystal/pearl WB's with some silver flash in the tail will getcha some oscars and snappers.

Sounds like a great rip Bill. Noisy top waters, 4 inch baitfish patterns in white and silver along with some clouser/shrimp patterns would be good I'd think. Go for the reaction bite with quick strip and pause and they should get on it. Gator trout may be lurking just off the current ledges.
If you take spinning gear (and you should) tie on a Bill Dance "spittin image" and get some good blow ups that time of year. Keep tight to the shore and have a blast with this thing. One of my all time favs down home........

Let me know if you need someone to run the trolling motor for ya bubba....
