I'm heading down to Florida the end of this week to my inlaws. Last time down I saw that the lake I fish for bass in was filled with large Tilapia. Anyone know a way to catch them? They were on beds this time last year and I'm not sure how that affects their feeding habits. I would like to catch a few of them just to see them up close.

carp food. you can buy pre-formed/scented stuff

bread balls work too

they have small mouths, there is a 40 pounder in the pond I fish. It's really not worth it, but good luck

Why would it not be worth it? Can you only eat farm raised fish?

Cast netted a big female and it spit out at least a dozen inch long talapia. The mother keeps the young in her mouth when in danger.
