Hi! I am new to fishing the area and am looking for where to fish from a small (18') boat near Gulf Breeze. People keep talking about "the flats", but I'm not sure where they mean. There are lots of grassy areas near shore, but the ones I've tried seem to be infested with 3" croakers, so I'm not sure that is what people mean. ANY useful advice would be appreciated... including where to get more useful advice.
