Dania Beach Area

Recommended Posts

Hello long time follower of the forum...first time posting. I was hoping somebody on here could point me in the right direction. I will be taking a cruise in late august out of fort Lauderdale. The way our flights were booked I will have to stay a day and a half in the Dania Beach Area. Would like to do some fishing (bass) in the area if at all possible. Any experience or advice for fishing the area? Are peas up that north? Advice on what to pack(space and weight being limited)?

 

Thanks in advance

Blake

Welcome to the forums. That area is loaded with peas. You should try staying near I-95 as far as location goes literally all of the canals that far south in the area will hold them. They like to hang out near the bank bridges and docks any kind of structure near shallow water. Small xraps are pretty popular I use the 1/8 oz size. Crappie jigs and various small walk the dog style baits work well too. If you want to use shiners it becomes a lot easier. I suggest braided line and a spinning rod unless you can handle very light baits with a baitcaster. The peas seem to be more active this time of the year than the bass most days. You may even be able to walk the banks and sight fish them especially if they're spawning.

I agree with the above, I'd head west along Griffin/Orange rds.

Thanks for the responses guys. I'm really excited to hear that there are some peas in the area. I tried to post a screenshot of google maps but could not get it to work.There is where we are staying. The Hyatt Place Beside i95. Anything around there in walking distance,  or a good spot the wife could drop me off while she shops? The canal that runs north and south adjacent to S Bryan Rd seems to be in walking distance with a couple bridges and coves. 

 

Thanks

The canal you are referring to is saltwater. There are no spots within walking distance from that area, that holds Peacocks. Having the wife drop you off will be your best bet. Look on google map around the I-75 (highway) area in the cities of Sunrise, Davie,Weston, Pemproke Pines and Miramar. It's pretty simple to get out there from by the beach, all highway driving. 595 west to I-75, north or south depending what city you decide. The Pembroke Pines and Sawgrassmills mall are within close proximity to the fishing grounds to.

Your hotel is a couple of miles from the beach. The only fresh water area close to your location is TY park and its on the East side of I-95 off Sheridan St which the exit just South of you. Good luck!! Also... take a good amount of water with you and cover up. Trust me... It's been extremely humid and hot lately. August is a very tough down here. Dehydration will occur quickly if you are not used to our weather.
