Let’ s talk freshwater.
Blue gill is the fish of choice, Lake betty or the Coco-Plum water way or 9-mile canal system is slap full of hungry blue gills. All this rain from the tropical systems has provided lots of fresh, cooler waters and the Blue gill are responding. #8 thin wire hook on 6 pound test mono line, 2 to 3 feet under a thin style bobber. Red wiggler worms are the bait of choice. For those of you who like to use lures a beetle spin 1/8 ounce with light browns.
Just as a thought, a nice place to launch a boat for blue gill is in South Gulf Cove. Launch the boat, put down the trolling motor and start fishing to the west, Watch for culvert pipes draining into the canal. The blue gills have been bunched around those pipes.
