I just got back. I waded. The waders on the trip caught way more fish. I only saw one shark and one stingray. It may depend on the area you are fishing. I am sure the rays and sharks will get worse as the water continues to warm.

We always wade on the "bay" side of the islands but fish out of the boat on the "surf" side. Too many big sharks on the surf side for me to wade there.

IIRC, spring is best time to fish over the grass beds, so lures accordingly. I always take a bunch of Hunchback wake baits, Spook Jr, soft plastics in various sizes and colors. I like big paddle tails.

Most of my crew only use the skiffs to get us to where we want to fish. Then anchor and wade inside or outside... Many years ago, used to fish from a float plane... You really get a good perspective of just how many BIG sharks are out there flying around hunting schools of fish to land and catch... Seen many folks wading along with JAWS literally yards away from them and they never knew the sharks were there... Also, schools of rays as big as the hood on a pick up that literally would cover acres of flats... Those, we'd just go somewhere else and not wade off into a minefield of rays...

Something else I would suggest to all your group. Wear long pants. My buddy only brought shorts and these horsefly things kept biting his legs.
