FLA Peacock Bass help needed
I'm planning a trip down to S. Florida in April to fish Peacocks, Black bass and snook. i'm hoping to not use a guide or shinners. Anyone, been there done that and can offer some advice. I looked into a couple guides at $400 a day both recommended shinners for best results. I want to see them explode on top water and feel them crush jerk baits, not to mention the shinners are $8/ dozen. It seems easy to me, work the cannels just like you would for large mouths. I'm sure the guides will know some great holes but if it's a difference between 15 fish or 25 fish I'll keep the $$$ in my pocket. Any help/info would be greatly appreciated.
Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.
