Bones are a lot of fun on fly or light spinning gear. Skinny water fishing requires a lot more finess as the fish are a lot spookier in the shallows. when you fish the muds in deeper water spinning gear works better. in either case a good quality reel with a smooth drag is in order. You can get a kit of twelve jigs in 1/4 and 1/2 oz from World Wide Sportsman in Islamorada with 6 different color combos. Its not in their catalogue this year but they will send it to you if you give them a call. These work well, I've also used 1/4 shrimp head jigs with a 2 or 3 inch twister tail. You tear off most of the tail and leave about 1/2 inch of the curl, I've had luck with chartruse. pink and brown colors. In any case if you can set up your guides before you go they can give you pointers, most of them have E-mail. good fishing.
