I'd recommend the area between Ft. Myers and Punta Gorda - - Pine Island Sound (Ft. Myers) and Charlotte Harbor (Punta Gorda).

I think the water quality in both is better than Sarosota or Tampa Bay.

Hi Doug...try this site

http://floridasportsman.com/.. go to the forum section and look for southwest Fla or try this link that will bring you right there..

I have a home in Cape Coral and will be going down on the 27th till April 14th.

I fish the Pine Island sound there also and it has some great flats fishing, Snook, Redfish, Sea trout, Tarpon and even fluke which they consider by catch.

They don't know what they are missing
