Golden Gate Canals

Today I ran south to Golden Gate area hoping for peacock bass. I found some areas with fish, one spot had about 20 in it sunning themselves, but I couldn't catch a fish. I had one blowup on a gold minnow spoon that i missed. I tried various crank baits, wake baits, poppers, paddle tails , rattle traps, spoons and a chatterbait. First cast on the spoon was the only strike, had a couple follows on crankbaits. I tried various colors and retrieval methods/speeds. The only thing I saw them eat were shiners.

So to anyone who has caught them were my lure choices in the ballpark? Any shops between Cape Coral and Golden Gate sell live shiners?
