Spillways work best when we have heavy rain...

Search out the South Florida water management sites, and old post on this board, you should easily find a link to the main site and information on how to use it... once you identify a spillway or three you can get some good info near real time opening/closings and flow rates.

The one in PSL holds some true slob snook once you figure out how to catch them.

Anyone have any feedback on the spillway at Orange and 441, just north of Griffin? I went out to it last week (2am) and it was flowing, wasn't there long.

That spillway is hit or miss. Small baits will yield small snook but soak a big bait and a tarpon or monster snook could take it. I've seen 3 snook over 45 inches caught there and tarpon to 100 lbs.

Thanks man, I hung up my last flair there and am awaiting a new batch. Will give it another shot soon.
