    " Non-native fish are those that do not occur in Florida naturally; most should be harvested and never released. Exceptions are peacock bass, which is a game fish, and triploid grass carp, which are stocked for vegetation control." http://www.eregulations.com/florida/fishing/freshwater/florida-freshwater-fish/

    Nice catch!

    Blue Tilapia sure do enjoy life in Florida! I wish the Bok Tower would allow fishing for them. They have a bunch of them that hang around one of the feeders that costs a quarter!

    Catch all you can. Maybe a fly that looks like bread on a flyrod..

    A friendly resident at one of the ponds said they had a huge fish kill, tons of big dead bass floating

    And I hate to say it, but that has happened at 3 very good lakes/ponds in the past--one was the pond I first started seriously bass fishing at and it was an excellent pond IMHO. I witnessed one of the fish kills and heard about the others from a friend and a resident, I haven't pulled or seen a fish off a bed in 2 years at a pond I've got a couple 35-36lb 5 fish stringers at during the spawn--unbelievable amounts of 4-6+lb blue tilapia blue tilapia beds every inch, chocked full of algae, and reported fish kill...sorry to be a negative nancy, gotta keep searchin' and hoppin' especially around here in suburbia.
