waters of Lake Ida. The numbers of bass for such a beautiful urban environment is simply fantastic. A few butterfly peacock bass have also found their way into this area, but the fishery continues to produce great large-mouth. Yes, the location does offer the opportunity to catch Peacock bass, but should not be the targeted species of choice. We have other location where they are much more abundant, so be sure to ask us about it.

While there’s not an abundant wildlife and colorful bird section like the Everglades has to offer, there are plenty of fish which are quickly accessible from most of south east coast and especially Palm Beach. Live bait as well as artificial lures work most all year around and because of the remote location it is well protected from most fail weather which would normally interrupt your day of fishing. There’s not another place in south Florida that’s more convenient and accessible to vacationers, business travelers or just local fishermen that want to learn how to fish the canal and lakes of South Florida. For more people worms and crickets are the choice baits for panfishing, although jigs and beetle spins will also work.

Lake Ida Peacock Bass Fishing

Lake Ida Peacock Bass Fishing

There is a bag limit for butterfly peacock and largemouth which posted at all of the ramps. When fishing for Peacock bass you are only allowed two fish per day,
only one of which may be over 17 inches. Butterfly peacock are sensitive to water temperatures below 60oF which makes them susceptible to periodic winterkills in the E-4 Canal system.

In addition to largemouth bass, bluegill, and redear sunfish, central E-4 Canal anglers can also catch several exotic fishes including oscars from South America, spotted tilapia from Africa, and Mayan cichlids from Central America.
These exotic species were illegally released and pose a threat to native species. Oscars, spotted tilapia, and Mayan cichlids are all bream-shaped fishes.

Don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have, go ahead and give this urban fishery a try. I know you will enjoy it.
