Nice! Peacock bass, and what looks like some orange tilapia, as well as more standard colored ones (I could be wrong on the tilapia). Were you guys in Hawaii?

No Miami. One is a Midas Cichlid and the other a Red Devil Fish.The dark one is a spotted tilipia.

Great pics. The problem with these forums is that I keep adding trips I want to take faster than I can take 'em.

From the perspective of someone who has spent a great deal of time in Miami, this sounds very funny. The fish in the canals are no doubt beautiful and a dream to fish for, but the canals themselves.....not so much. On more than one occasion I fished very urban portions of the canals with my friend. Had a highway on one side and the projects on the other. Had to hop over guard rails, climb under fences, and avoid some really strange looks. I don't mean to put a damper on you dream here, its a great one, and like I said, the canals have amazing fishing; just got a good chuckle from my perspective.

And as for rod weight, its really up to how much play you want the fish to have. The canals are pretty narrow in most spots, so casting distance is of little concern. While I was there, I used a 5wt most of the time and had 0 problems. If I went back today, I'd definitely bring my 2wt as well. Those big tilapia, cichlids, and peacocks would be a blast on it. If you had to pick one rod and not worry about anything, I'd say grab a 6wt and you'll be fine. There's some big fish in there if you find them.

theboz might know more about largemouths in the area. I spent most of my time in Miami fishing a portion of that canal that didnt seem to have largemouth OR peacocks, but I did catch a largemouth once in an area that I assume had both.

Plenty of kLargemouths mixed in depends on the canal. I use a 7or 8 wt only for the fact Clousers are the way to go with the Peacocks and it's a little less chuck and duck!

Most of the scenery in the canals is urban backyards but some look quite tropical and with all the Iguanas, pythons and Tegu Lizards you can picture yourself somewhere else.
