Flats fishing is seeing your quarry before they see you. The two primary senses the flats fish use are sight and hearing. The approach to the target must not be obvious or loud.Learn the bottom geography of an area and how to navigate it. Learn what a productive fishing spot is. Flats are shallow water areas found in bays or around shorelines. The flats are foundation for substantial amount of marine life. Part of the strong appeal of flats fishing is that schools or individual fish are spotted and stalked – requiring the angler to have skill to be successful. Flats are long, level, shallow areas adjacent to deeper water. Flats are found in bays, estuaries, and marshes, and ocean shorelines.It is the perfect habitat for shrimp, crabs and juvenile fish. These areas attract larger predatory fish. The bottom composition of a flat can varie, grass, sand, rock, mud, gravel, or a combination and vegetation.
Flats with grass or other vegetation offer cover and food for many species of fish.These are the best types of flats habitat for fish. During low tide the flats can be totally dry.During high tide the water level can rise a few feet.The deeper water attrects gamefish move onto the flats to feed. When the tide drops, gamefish lie in wait to feed on crabs and baitfish as they flee to deeper water. There are many flats that remain permanently submerged of tides, though tides affect feeding activity. The most common gamefish in the flats are redfish, tarpon, seatrout, bonefish, permit and snook. Other species are striped bass, bluefish, barracuda, shark, cobia and mutton snapper. Tarpon inhabit the flats during a peak period of late April or early May through June. Depending on the tide, they do most of their feeding early in the morning. When a tarpon comes to the surface for oxygen, chances are more will be feeding nearby. Snook often hide in the turtle grass surrounding potholes, which are circular depressions with sandy bottoms. Snook are also common among mangroves. Redfish flash their tail around “tailing” when looking for crab.Redfish and snook can also be seen in the flats and so is the famous bonefish.
A productive spot may be a rise of a rocky bottom at the edge of a large grass flat with a good tidal sweep. Certain flats and their respective bottoms have an attraction for certain species of fish. Learn an area by examining it on a low spring tide in the middle of the day. This is the best opportunity to visually eximine the bottom conditions and configurations. And learn to navigate the area.
Fish seek temperate areas. Certain flats are more productive on different phases of the tide. Flats fish are not active on slack tide. Fish feed into the wind or tide whichever is stronger.
SEA GRASSES - In the Florida Bay.Grass beds occur where there is little current.Sediment and vegetation debris accumulate in crevices and depressions spots of the sea floor. Sea grass seeds drift, settle and take root.
There are seven species of sea grass. Turtle grass, manatee grass, and shoal grass are commonly seen. Sea grasses have a root system, and produce seed underwater. The blades and roots are habatit to many animals. The sea grass is a host to algae, sea worms and hydroids. The grasses are food for fish, crustaceans, turtles, and many other animals.
You want to fish early for trout in summer. Use your favorite top water lure at first light. Trout will move to deeper water soon after sunrise. Move to grass flats that are 2-4 feet in depth and switch to popping corks with live shrimp or pinfish.
Keep three rods rigged for redfish close at hand when fishing the flats. One with a favorite top water lure, one with a gold spoon and one with a root beer grub tail jig. Start with your top water at first light and switch to spoons or jigs as the sun rises.
Kayaks go where bigger boats can't. The reefs, shallows and mangrove beds. Islands and streams with inaccessible shorelines. All the places the fish and birds are waiting.
