Brackish water fishing in south Florida

Recommended Posts

I live in Coral Springs is there any canals down here in south Florida that holds peacock bass and some saltwater fish? Would love to try to catch some and what bait should I use

Our canals will hold bass, pea's snook,and tarpon. The closer you get to the coasts, these same canals may have jack's. At one point however, the canals will reach a transition zone and your chances of the saltwater fish will increase, while your chances of freshwater fish will decrease.

You don't need to be in brackish water to catch Snook and Tarpon,these fish can live in 100% freshwater canals.There is a freshwater canal down here where I have caught Largemouth Bass,Peacock Bass,Snook ,Tarpon,and various exotics all in the same day.Coral Springs does have Peacock Bass,but I recommend going further further east or south to increase your chances of catching them.A Rapala X rap can help you catch all these fish and is one of my favorite lures to use when canal fishing.
