Flats (Saltwater)


Flats fishing can be very exciting, especially in clear water.  Anglers fish the flats for a variety of fish, but most anglers fish the flats for redfish, bonefish, sea trout, tarpon, permit, snook and sharks.  With water in the 1 to 3 foot range, most saltwater anglers will use a push pole to maneuver the flats without spooking fish.  Some anglers will use their trolling motor and some will just get out and wade if it is shallow enough.
