I live five miles from the myakka river. Thats my favorite place to catch bluegill. Use to fly fish for them but rather hook a cricket on the line. I would launch my jon boat at snook haven and fish from there all the way to the lower dam. Ive caught more trophy bluegill there then any other place. I no longer have my tin boat so i hevent been there in years.Looking for boat to take my son austin there.
