TAKING KIDS TO MARKHAM PARK??

ebgatorebgator MemberPosts: 46 Deckhand
THINKING OF TAKING MY 9 YEAR OLD AND 3 YEAR OLD TO MARKHAM PARK ON SATURDAY. HAVE NEVER FISHED THERE, BUT I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF IT'S WORTH TAKING SOME RODS OUT, AND WHAT SHOULD I RIG UP TO MAKE IT FUN FOR THEM. I DON'T MIND USING ARTIFICIALS BUT I WANT THE KIDS TO HAVE IT A LITTLE EASIER. ANY INPUT WOULD BE APPRECIATED.

THANKS YOU ALL!!

    I am not sure about the lakes inside the park? I must admit they to look fishy.

    Now the canal that borders the west side of the park that separates the Park from the Sawgrass is full of peacock bass.

    I would bring a few dozen shiners if you have anyway of keeping them alive and throw out a few. I am sure they will catch a few.

    Yea definitely worth fishing there. Pick up some shiners from BJs and toss em out in any of the canals. I've caught a good amount of peacocks this way.
