Know where you're going to go exactly, or just the BP area?
Incase you didn't see on another part of the site or in any of FLYC prev emails, there's a site I've been using for a few years that is really good for the Keys at least. www.maptech.com and go to the mapserver option then online maps. You can look at both satellite and nautical maps and try to find holes and where you want to try.
I've caught jacks and snapper at NoName Key Bridge then 22" adn 25" gags up the channel, but that whole area in general isn't very good except for a nice trout flat but you need a boat to get to it (have done the channel all the way to Spanish Harbour bridge and out, plus into the backwater, both via boat and yak).
I've pulled some mangrove snapper and juvie cuda out of the bridge at NoName, but go to the NoName side, not the BP side of the bridge. No one fishes over there, even bridge fishers. By yak I discovered some holes back there but had hard time fishing because the tidal rush over the skinny water leading to it really moves you around....plus the bugs, holy cow the bugs. Anyway, came back quite a few times and fished off the bridge after learning the layout under it w/ the yak and pulled some nice fish out.
So if nowhere else is doing any good, just head out to that bridge Also be sure to get a pizza at NoNamePub when you're done!
