I fished down in Flamingo for the 1st time last Thursday and Friday, what a special place! We were after tarpon and they didn't disappoint. Definitely looking to make a return trip! Looks like you were fishing in Ponce bay?

Thank you so much, we put a ton of time in making it. Takes about a week to make doing it a little at a time.

Can I get around in my 33' or is it too shallow around that area?

That size boat will be out of place there. Skiff's and bay boats rule the day as the water depth is in the 3-5 ft on average.

I have seen boats (skiffs and bayboats) stuck out front in the channel on a negative low tide. I wouldn't bring that big of boat there.
