Don't let the naysayers get you down! You know saltwater flyfishing is a low percentage game already.

Bonefish are plentiful but small around any estuary or sandy bottom. Haven't been able to sight fish for them, but they are plentiful.

Your best bet for a big fish is fall around the marinas for corvina. They love flies, casts tend to be short and I've caught them to about 18 pounds. You'll find tons of 2-3 pounders and an occasional double digit fish. Sun up or sundown into the dark are the best times.

In the fall, we catch tons of small roosters (2-3 pounds), leather jacks and small sierra right in the wash on sandy beaches. Very short casts. Just have to keep baits moving fast. Every now and then the larger roosters (very rare) or big toros show up. If you see a big brown cloud moving down the beach, those are most likely toros. Do whatever you can to get a bait in front of them.
