I love fishing South Florida and the keys. Has fishing changed over the years or decades, due too cold fronts, over fishing, or the oil spill. Just want to know if there will be fish left for me when I finally get to move to florida for good.

it will take a few years to recover from last winter's cold front. that just blasted things.
the everglades had so much rotting meat in it that i wanted to throw up. the stench was unbearable. i'm sure the birds cleaned up as much as they could but wow.
there are protected areas which will help bring fish populations back, the oil spill didnt do squat but that cold front really did a number on things. in a few years alot of populations will rebound but its going to take some time.

eco: that works for us naturalists but the fishermen like catching peacock bass and their numbers have been pretty much leveled for now.

south: my fishermen buddies are telling me they're not finding certain types of fish that normally would be around.

FWC - South Region, Florida Fishing Sites and Forecast might be some help for Canal fishing.

Weren't pbass originally stocked by the FWC for the purpose of bringing in tourists and business to local stores? I wonder if they would restock in the future.

I'm pretty sure fishermen will do it themselves.
