This shiner fishing thing is pretty awesome. Florida bass fishing is a little different than Kentucky. We don't have to avoid any big gators at home. We saw some big ones on the St. John's river. We caught quite a few bass. Not as many as I would have like but it was pretty fun. We got a late start with two flats and a broken spring on the boat trailer of our guide. We didn't get onto the water until 8:00. After some misses, my son got hot and started reeling good bass in. He also had to fight in a 20+ pound gar. It was a fun and hot day on the St. John's river. I can't wait to come back.
If you ever come to Florida, check this guy out. He's a hard working guide and a fun guy to fish with. http://www.bobstonewater.com/
