Picked up some nice specks on fly right before this little front blew in. Ended up getting about 10 to hand, but these were the best ones. Fished near Confederate reef over shell and rock in deeper cuts that had good water movement. This is why I live right on the water...

On my 8wt, floating line, 10'-ish leader, black and pink tarpon bunny type pattern. Water was 3-4' deep and the hook was big enough to get the fly down but not sink it to the bottom.

Yes but it was pretty targeted. I knew the fish were there and I was casting into visible guts about 4’ deep.
Nice. I’ve been watching the forecast and I think I’m gonna take off Friday to see what I can see.

St
Thank for your report, drifting or staked out?
Staked out on the edges of the cuts in the reef. Tide was moving out pretty good so it was kinda like swinging streamers in a river. I ran over there a couple days ago just to see if they were still there and stuck a couple smaller ones. I expect this front coming through Monday night will move them out to deeper water but it was fun while they were there.
