Won't the mosquitoes eat me alive?
Won't the mosquitoes eat me alive? - Absolutely not! Frankly, the only place you’re likely to encounter mosquitos is when you’re changing planes in Miami. There are almost never mosquitoes in the regions we fish during the dry season. The blackwater rivers we fish are too acidic to allow mosquito reproduction. Most of the rivers do have small gnats and horse flies, but never in oppressive numbers. Bees and wasps are also encountered, generally in numbers similar to those found in the United States.
