Default Englewood/Placida/Boca Grande spots?

Heading down there for 5 days with the boat so I can get to any spot. I'm "still" a beginner that has gotten up a few times and now just working on trying to stay upwind.

It's been a long time since I've been to that area (or even used the kite).

Any good spots where the water is shallow enough, but not too shallow, where it's safe to practice? I know to stay well away from the pass. If anything, I would try further north, for example in Placida Harbor or the north west end of Gasparilla sound. Are these spots ok?

Or depending on the wind direction, maybe even further north at stump pass? google maps makes it look like it's filled in and really shallow out there.
