Peter, there are also tarpon to be had, down there too, and you don't need a boat. There is a group that fishes for them off the jetties in the evening and at night. Getting one to the rocks can be a trick but after three or four jumps, you are ready to have him spit the fly and move on to the next one.
The only problem (if you can call it that) is, when you get a strike, you never know what size fish you'll have on the other end. There are a lot of 20-50# fish that follow the jetties but, don't be surprised if one of 100+ pounds clears the water.
Next trip down, you might want to throw in a sinking line and give it a try. Oh yeah, there are also a few snook around the rocks as well.
