    they are lots of peacocks and exotic species to target along with Largemouths...I usually just walk the banks and sightcast with my 5wt and usually a small EP minnow pattern

    Can you eat the canal fish or not a good idea? I have seen some big bass in my area but never fished the canals

    thanks

    Louie-

    Here's my 2 cents, for what it's worth. Florida is full of very tasty saltwater fish. Largemouth and peacock bass are decent to eat. In my opinion, at best, good frying fish. I would leave them for someone else or for you to catch another time. CPR - Catch, Photo, Release.

    Additionally, I would be a little concerned about run-off in the canals. There's bound to be a fair amount of herbicides, pesticides and other chemicals. FWC may test these waters, since they have become a popular fishery, but I don't know for sure whether or not they do.

    I have heard all the stories but have yet to hit the canals when I am down there.

    The canals can have big fish but some are dirty mosquito filled "sewers"
