    I live in Canada and will be in Lakeland for 2 weeks in March. I am looking for a place that is not more then 1 hour and a half drive to do some wade fishing for snook, redfish and trout. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
    Also. I would like to fish for some Kingfish and Sharks, it appears that the best place would be a pier. Skyway pier appears to be good.

    Thank you for the heads up. By the pictures on the web site, it looks to be busy.
    Any suggestions on a place to fish from shore, I like to wade fish with artificials.
    Thanks again for your response.

    hey norm,the causeways leading out to the skyway piers have miles of shallow grass flats that are very good for wading.lots of grass and sandy holes that hold trout,redfish and flounder.snook fishing may be a little off due to the front that just came in but you should be able to find fish.you can pull off at the rest areas and park anywhere along the causeways and be fishing right away.let me recomend D.O.A shrimp or berkley gulp in new penny color.1/8 or 1/4 ounce jig heads and your ready to roll.good luck,and bring some of that cold weather w/you.
