Discovering Florida's Fishing Opportunities

The freshwater fishing has been treating me good. I started out with a weight dumbbell fly and fished off the bottom and landed many decent sized bass, bream and mayan cichlid. After talking to a friend, he reminded me how fun it was to fish topwater flies. I took his advice and landed even bigger bass on the top. My personal bass was landed with a deerhair bug. I was told there are even bigger bass in Florida and I am looking forward to. Along with the bass, I landed several new species which are not offered in the Northeast.

I plan to fish the salt soon and more updates will follow.
