    Nice P's guys. Was wondering if u or anyone else has seen any sign of the P's recovering in Broward co.

    Thanks for the update Krash. I've been out of state for 6 months but hoping they'd be making their way back up there by now. Been a long two years since anyone's been able to get after em outside of Dade Co.

    Any crankbait that's 2-3.5 inches long that's brightly color. They seem to prefer orange and work it fast.

    Caught one few months ago in S. Broward on a rooster tail, have always had luck with the non-nesting P's using Zara Puppy (my fav freshwater lure). Numbers arent what they used to be.
