However, I heard fishing was hot down there, so I made the drive Wednesday morning. It's a little over 2 hours south of me.
Didn't see another boat all day.
I fly fished, using mainly a 3-weight and my Myakka Minnow. Conservatively, I estimate I caught and released 250 fish, including largemouth bass, bluegill, stumpknocker, shellcrcker, warmouth perch, gar and one Mayan cichlid.
I litterally left the fish hitting. I rarely went two casts without at least a hit.
Didn't notice the bubble-eye bass until after I uploaded the photos.

Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will sit in a boat and drink beer all day.

Tyer for 5 years!!
I specialize in tying Classic Salmon Flies as well as some of the more generic trout patterns.
If anyone has a question or is in need of any materials, I can try to point you in the right direction.

Darwinism seems to have become a politically protected sacred cow, and I've never seen a sacred cow I haven't wanted to roast - the fact that you are not supposed to criticize it is just too irresistible to me.
