I realize I'm still a few months away from tilapia dieoff here in Central Ohio. But in an effort to plan ahead, I plan to harvest and fillet the tilapia before the water gets too cold and kills them. Plan is to do a catch and cook fish fry with some friends.
Anyone have tried and consistent ways of catching tilapia? I don't honestly care if it's by hook and line or some other method, though hook and line is more fun. Does anyone have a traditional fishing method for catching for the kids that might not be able to handle a flyrod?
I've only been successful in regularly catching tilapia with a fly rod and a small yarn fly made to look like a piece of floating feed which the tilapia are more than happy to pig down.
