Miami Airport Lakes Are On Fire

Recommended Posts

In 2010 there was a bad freeze in South Florida that killed many of the Peacock Bass. This year I have really seen a significant increase in both numbers and quality sized peacocks. I was with a client in The Miami Airport Lakes system a few days ago. We brought some shiners with us as a backup just in case. It was a good call. The large female took a shiner free lined under a bridge and the male took a Rapala Skitter Prop on top. It was an excellent day as we caught four peacocks over 4#'s and some smaller largemouth bass. Merry Christmas to all of the BR guys and gals.

Wow, lived in Miami most my life and never knew there were Peacock bass by the airport. TheN again never really did a lot of fresh water fishing. Those only live in the south warm waters right?

Thanks for the video Shane. I pass through that area for work 2 days out of the week. It's such a pretty area to fish. Such an awesome fishery right in the heart of Miami. I love it.

Hey Shane are there any spots on Blue Lagoon for shore fishing? I'd love to give that a try but haven't got a boat. I also been lookin on google maps and can't find any open areas that I can post up and do some fishing without getting kicked out.

Not really. The place is covered up with homes in the back canals and businesses/apartments on the main lakes.

Yeah just as I suspected. Well, hopefully within the next 6 months I can get me something like the sun dolphin 2-man pro 10.2 to hit the spots I can't hit now.
