Krome Ave.

I was driving north on Krome avenue today for the first time in a couple years and I was really surprised at the transformation that's taking place.
This part of the Canal between the Tamiami Trail and route 27 has always been good fishing, but was really hard to get to. It Took some real determination to get to the water.
Now it looks like they cleaned up the Levee,mowed the Levee and the flat part near the Canal. Looks like it makes it lot a easier access to fishing.
The sections of East side of the canal have been cleaned up a lot too.
Has anyone been out there lately?

    i fished the tamiami canal right next to the bridge on krome ave twice in the past week. the first time, there were peacocks all over right next to the edge, and i caught 3, all about a pound. i stopped in the same place a few days later, and i saw a few other fish, but only a few peacocks that i was able to see. either they weren't here, or they were in deeper water. either way, its worth a try. i guess it depends on the day. also, i have very little experience, so maybe someone with more experience can get them out of the middle without seeing them

    :banghead I knew I should have stopped..
    Hey , you caught 3. That's 3 more peas than I've ever caught. They seem to hug the bank from what you guys tell me and from what I've seen on TV.

    Could someone mark this spot on a map like google maps or something? I think I know what you guys are talking about but I went there once and didn't see a single peacock.

    I love fishing the Trail and first went out there with my Grandpa sixty Yeats ago.

    corner of krome (sw177th) ave and tamiami trail. there is a gas station across the st that doubles as a bait and tackle shop. there is a little spot just north of the intersection where you can park, and try both sides of the street
