March 6th, 2001-- Upper Keys and Florida Bay Flats and Backcountry. Bonefishing has been fairly productive during the past week. Although not up to the springtime standards, we're getting plenty of shots while perusing the flats. Unseasonably warm temperatures have the fish covering most areas from the backcountry banks to the ocean side shorelines. Typical shrimp patterns and brown and tan Clousers have fooled them during the week. A shrimp and spin combo always seems to produce if one can make the cast.
Bonefishing has been sub par for the past month or so.
