no big secret at all. there are fish out on the flats all year long, just like there are fish on the reefs all year long. last july and august in the heat of summer, i caught just as many fish on the inshore reefs as i did out on the flats and gravel bars. it all depends on the weather. i guess if there is a secret, it would be what pattern is catching fish.................tom fellegy

Did OK on the flats-closest to shore-just out from the reefs on the west side. Seemed like by the weekend we were really showing more fish stacked up together and not scattered as they were earlier in the week. Leeches and crawlers. It seems that they would turn on to one and then after a while switch back to the other. Tried fatheads and shiners also with one fish on a shiner-jigging.

The flats are going now with the Mayfly hatch happening. I was able to get out for a few hours last night with PWT Pro Kevin Madigan and we managed several nice fish off of the mud.

For us the key was to go with the slowest presentation possible.
