Mowing Dead Grass - Bag or no?

I live in Florida and we had a pretty cold front the came through a few weeks ago that killed the grass (St. Augustine). The grass is a bit long now and needs to be mowed, since I would be mowing dried dead grass, should I use the bag attachment?

Thank you for any feedback

I think the biggest reason to consider bagging is if there is so much grass, that it will make the lawn look crappy.

Bag ever other time. Once you leave the cuttings for mulch. (but only when you cut less than 1" from the grass) leaving it there too often will smother the lawn.
