Default Griffin Road Canal between Dania and ??--way on out.

I usually drive way out Griffin Road, right along the canal bank. The bank is steep and pretty hard to fish but there are plenty of Peacocks and Mayan Cichlids in the canal and they are pretty easy to catch.

When you get out 5-6 miles, cross one of the canal bridges and get on Orange Ave. Take a right on Shotgun Rd and pass the first roundabout. There is a short canal a few hundred yards from the roundabout that goes into a subdivision lake. Tons of Peacocks there.

The airport rd canal near the Miami Airport is loaded too plus shots at Tarpon and Snook.

If you are interested in other exotics down there I have a few spots. I live 300 miles from there but try to make a trip each year. My old truck is knocking on 400,000 miles so I doubt if I'll make it again.

Myan Caichlids and Oscars--still looking for Peacocks caught from yak on Alligator Alley canals.
