Overview


Shallow ocean, or "flats," fishing is one of the most popular coastal activities in Florida. No other place has such a large combination of different shallow water species. In Fishing Florida’s Flats, world-champion angler Jan Maizler draws on the expertise of numerous "flatsmasters" who share their wisdom on how to land a trophy catch.
 
Their advice--suitable for a range of first-time and experienced anglers--includes tackle selection, techniques, and directions to “hot spots” for each flats species. From habitat, biology, and feeding patterns to spotting tactics and state records, each flats fish is covered in detail. Maizler offers invaluable knowledge of the many vessels available, the different kinds of flats and the best ways to wade them, and important weather safety information. Maizler also reviews the recent technical and electronic developments in flats fishing, such as websites, software programs, and Global Positioning System devices that are now necessary additions to the Florida flats angler’s arsenal.
 
For the large and growing number of anglers who have chosen flats fishing as their sport, this is the ultimate guide for catching bonefish, tarpon, permit, barracuda, sharks, redfish, seatrout, and snook in the state. Get hooked on Fishing Florida’s Flats.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Few places on earth offer better opportunities for "flats," or shallow ocean fishing, than Florida. But to be successful, shallow water marine angling requires training and discipline, traits exemplified by Jan S. Maizler, a world champion angler who has already penned several books on the topic. Fishing Florida's Flats proves his modesty. Though he himself has more than 45 years of flats fishing experience, Maizler draws generously on the expertise of numerous other "flatsmasters." Peerless fishing wisdom.
