Like anywhere anytime. Be aware of your surroundings and pay attention to what your seeing. Their ambush predators. I live in SWFL. I see em all the time, especially at night. Their eyes reflect very well. Bass fishing you see em and they usually will react to your lure or hooked fish. Makes sense right. Easy meal, very atractive. With that being said, the small ones are somewhat scaredy cats. Big ones, give em room. Pay attention to movement under pads and vegetation, bubbles from bottom disturbance. Things that look like logs. It's the ones you dont see that will put you in a bad situation. Have fun and be safe.
