west wall    Tide
The west wall got it's name from me Fishin Franks because 30 years
ago there was no one here to tell me that is was the Mc Coy flats
named after a Town which used to be along the northern ends called Mc Coy

It is now one of the most famous fishing places in S.W. Florida
The west wall is a long shore line protected by a continuous Sand bar
which runs the entire length from north to south.
The other feature which runs almost continuously is a trough
that is just along the drip edge of the mangroves, in some places
it might only be a few inches deeper other 2 feet of extra water this is where the Reds are going to be laying .

when the tide is up  they go under the branches to feed as the tide starts to drop
they will fall in to the through if the tides starts to get too low they will leave the flats
and head out into the harbor.
