Right now it might be hard wading/ shore. When the water gets a bit warmer they will move in to the shallows. Live shrimp under a popping cork is hard to beat. Top water works well early a.m. late afternoon, and flukes/ jershad and gulp/ DOA shrimp on jig heads are also good, especially at night around dock lights.

Their not on every grass flat. I fished near shoreline last weekend and only caught spanish. Keep trying different areas until you find them.

The trout are all over the grass flats. Been catching good fish on top waters almost all day if the wind cooperates if not I go to a mirro dine.
How about the flats in Santa Rosa sound, approximately south west of Woodlawn Beach? Or the humongous flats further west not quite to Portafino? Did you try those?

I wade those flats outside of Portofino and they are not there yet. When the water warms up a little bit probably. I have been catching all of mine in 6-10 feet of water lately.
