We have been Snakehead fishing and catching them since the mid-2000s, while Snakehead fishing is restrained to residential canals and ponds in Ft Lauderdale for now. Most anglers initially think there a bowfin (mudfish) until noticing the orange dot, a distinctive dark spot rimmed in brilliant orange near the base of the tail fin.
Since their arrival, we have spent years targeting these fish in our local waters. We have caught as many as 40 on one trip and usually average around 15 per outing. It is fun fishing with lots of explosive topwater strikes and hard runs. Not to mention that you will probably catch plenty of other species as well. You have to love South Florida, the melting pot for everything including fishing. With all of our native and non-native species, we consider where we live in Fort Lauderdale to be one of the most exciting freshwater destinations in the World. It’s a fish that many anglers try fishing for and end up returning again and again. [READ MORE…] or reserve below…
This fishery is made up of canals and lakes, the canal intersections, bridges, and culverts are generally productive areas for catching most species of fish. Shoreline vegetation, riprap areas, and shady spots associated with bridges also provide excellent fishing areas. Lake Ida is about a 36o-acre lake connected to other lakes by a large canal system. Aquatic vegetation consists of cattail, spatterdock, and hydrilla. The fish are attracted by the large amounts of shad in the system.
On Okeechobee, the two primary ways to fish are with artificial lures or wild shiners. Bass fishing on the “Big O” with wild shiners is the preferred bait for many anglers for trophy bass. It just happens to be the natural food that they feed on daily. Wild Shiner fishing became very popular many years ago when anglers fishing Okeechobee for largemouth bass would see their feeding habits. It has become an increasingly popular choice because once you’ve experienced this style of fishing you’ll quickly recognize that it’s much more than just sitting and watching bobbers. We have a special kind of tackle and a secret way of hooking and rigging shiners.
Like some of you, we also prefer to fish with artificial lures as much as possible. When fishing Lake Okeechobee with artificial, you will have the choice of spinning, baitcasting or fly fishing. flipping and pitching on Okeechobee is always really popular, it’s always a great lake for topwater plugs do to its shallow depths. We are open to any techniques you’re interested in learning about, just let us know. READ MORE…or reserve below…
