December 17th, 2019 — For the afternoon of my 180th outing of this year, I explored and fished an unnamed set of “sewage canals” in Fort Myers, FL. Some of these canals don’t even show up on Google Maps; however, they are all connected to each other. Their function is to collect run off water from the rain, diminishing the possibility of floods around the vicinity. My main objective was to see if anything thrived in it, and if so, which Species would those be. Read more about it below!

Did you know that…?

πŸ•³οΈ …This is not the first time that I have found a juicy hole in a shallow and filthy Florida Canal! Earlier this year, I SLAYED at another deep hole in Orlando: The key in fishing these canals is to always find the deeper areas! Since the bigger fishes are not able to survive in the shallower areas, they will stack up there.
πŸ•³οΈ …In the 20th century, the Blackchin Tilapia was imported to the southwest area of Florida as a food source. Due to heavy floods in the area, they escaped from the fish farms and became established in local waterways. They have been in the wild since 1959.
πŸ•³οΈ …EPF has been stopped by law enforcement in the state of Florida for a total of SIX times. Three out of these six times, I was asked for my fishing license and state ID. When talking to law enforcement, the key element is to remain calm and be respectful! If you didn’t do anything wrong, you shouldn’t be afraid anyways!
