Thread: Any peacock bass in port charlotte area?

  1. Default Any peacock bass in port charlotte area?

    Looking for some entertainment and peacock bass are a lot of fun
    On the fly. Primarily i will be fishing the canals along ohara south of
    776. Any suggestions for fly patterns and species to target will make
    My time more productive.

    the best peacock bass fishing is in the Miami Ft Lauderdale area. Peacock Bass are very tempurature sensitive. That's why they tend to go no further north than Ft L. During extreme cold fronts they pull back south. If you can get to the east coast do it, some of the best, prettyest, out of S. America. You can find decent guide shops on the internet.

    Unfortunately There are not any peacock bass in the Charlotte area. I recommend searching for a different game species such as spotted bass, common or grass carp, or stripers for fly fishing on lake Norman.

    Just respect the waters of course!

    I don't know that I'd drive 10 hours to fish Lake Norman, especially with the great fishing on Florida's Gulf Coast.

    I somehow missed this post, sorry. Are you still looking for info? The Ohara area canals hold snook and baby tarpon. Just a 5 minute drive away from The Rays Stadium, the area behind it is a State Buffer Preserve. Sam Knight Creek and Tippicanoe Creek, holds reds, snook and small spinner sharks.
