Back in 08. I found Alligator Gar, Short Nose Gar ,Peacock Bass, Big Mouth Bass, Bowfin, Tarpon, and Pickerrell if you can find them . I never found a Snake Head but I’m talking about 12 years ago . Still a great place from what I remember . I can’t wait to get back home so i can put a line in the water. To see what I can find. If you live in South Florida! I recommend it. If you can drive an hour or two. I recommend you should it’s worth it. I’ll be home soon to see the Sunrise and 🌅. I cannot wait to enjoy myself!!
The opportunities on lake Ida are impressive. Clown Knifes up to 40”, hard fighting peacock bass and the occasional wiper and largie. Perhaps a snakehead too if you have special skills for those. I don’t know any other lake in the world where you could catch all those. Great guides for the lake too like Jurassic Park Fishing CHarters, he went above and beyond for me to get those tricky clown knives. Definitely is a lot harder fishing this lake from shore, with very limited success. Would recommend taking your own boat out or hiring the guide I spoke or any guide for that matter. He’s the best one though for Clown Knives on Lake Ida.
