Canal Behind My House - Pics

Recommended Posts

was screwing around with some different worms this evening and decided to try out a little lure. forgive me for not knowing the name of it or anything else in the tackle box. anyways, here is the 4 i caught in less than an hour... i had no clue they were in here and this big.

these florida canals can hold some pretty big bass, I've seen them 8 pounds in canals you can spit across!

My man I would wait to get a boat in the winter months. It's the off season and if you can hold out just a little longer I can almost guarantee you will find a good deal.

I waited 'til this past winter and got a 14ft jon boat with a 32lbs TM, a 2.7hp motor, has 2 comfortable seats, life vests, an anchor, a small battery, and a minnow keeper all on a trailer for $400 bucks. I got extremely lucky. But I saw tons of other decent deals that I don't see now because it's summer.

actually guys, i am hopefully going to get back my dads old boat he sold to his friend 15 years ago. just a 13ft v hull with front deck. not too sure the deck is in too good of shape anymore. project time.

but this is pretty cool that i am getting the boat i grew up on as my own ya know? getting it for 100 bucks since the guy never uses it. i would need to get a trailer for it and motors, etc etc. but the sentimental value is there and worth the effort IMHO.

That's a mayan cichlid, not a peacock.

folks who eat them call them strawberry daquiries. i used to catch 50-70 of them and give them to the ladies who work in my schools cafeteria. they are prety good, but i will stick with the saltwater variety when it comes to eating fish.
