Matlacha Flats

Matlacha Flats
    There is a lot of action all along Matlacha Pass especially around the bars (sandbars) leading to the East Wall of Charlotte Harbor. Bait is all over the place and the action is pretty steady with alot of the fish being short. The slot fish are worth working for. Trout, Redfish, Bonnethead Sharks and Snook are prowling all over the flats inside the bars and into the mangrove bushes. If you get out there, you will get a bite. White Bait is probably prefered but live shrimp and cut ladyfish work well too. Plastics and hardbaits are catching fish as well. Had a great time and with beautiful weather included.
