Here is one of the northern variety from last year.

Thanks Mike,  Are the rock bass here the same as the ones in MI?  They grow big in the great frozen, they must get huge here.  I thought flyers were from setting the hook too hard on small gills.  The Red Breast and Sunfish are different animals?   I have learned a lot in just a short time on this site but still don't know much about the f/w fish.

Other than the Copper nose BG, crappie, tilapia,  which other panfish do we have in FL?  I have caught some I was not sure of.  When  I moved to FL in 1999 I started fly fishing in salt water so I'm pretty new to what is here in the freshwater side of things.  In Michigan I used to catch lots of BG, SMB, Sunfish, perch, carp, LMB, alll the trout, lots of salmon,  most of them on fly tackle.  I even enjoy catching rough fish on fly.

Hi Steve, I live here in Central Florida Bassville Park ( Tavares/Leesburg area ) I'm a 100% flyfisher and do most my fishing in the Ocala National Forest lakes and stream along with trips up to the Suwannee and Santa Fe Rivers. Ocassionaly I do a little inshore fishing too. I've been down your way a few times fishing the Teneroc Management area, interesting.

Any one here from Central Florida?  I'm in Lakeland, fish the local lakes and phosphate pits as well as local streams.

 Mike, I'm hoping some of this rain we've been getting will bring some of our ponds and small lakes back up, I miss fishing them!

 I'll be fishing the south end of Lake George this weekend!

I usually fish on the south end of the lake around the Clewiston area

Good gills caught on the flyrod on Okeechobee.  I've been having some good luck lately. Nice fat bluegill being caught.
