The urban canals has some limited schooling activity for peacock bass and a lot of sightcasting. A great time to target them on fly's.
My week started off with where I left off the week before with Howard Mullin of Sarasota, Florida and Tom Findlay of St. Petersburg, Florida fly fishing a full day in the L-4 canal and they caught 16 largemouth bass up to 3 pounds using wooly buggers. The next day Dean McNew of Ft. Myers, Florida and his brother Rob of Tennessee fished a full day in the L-29 canal and caught 29 largemouth bass up to 3 pounds using Sankos. The next day Seth Waller of Lake Worth, Florida and John Socol of Ft. Lauderdale, Florida fished a full day in the C-4 canal and would catch 35 peacock bass up to 5 pounds and one 7 pound largemouth bass using Road Runner Jigs. The next day Marty Arostegui of Coral Gables, Florida fished a full day in the C-1 canal and he caught 3 peacock bass up to 3 pounds and 2 grass carps on small jigs and berry fly's. I finished the week with Carl Hochrein of Pembroke Pines, Florida fishing a full day in the L-30 canal and we caught 53 largemouth bass up to 6 pounds, 3 peacock bass, 2 Mayan cichlids and one catfish on Gambler Flappin Shads, Baby Torpedoes and floating Rapalas. A full week ahead!
