If you do manage to get a few it's crucial to remove the body cavity lining before cooking them. Filleting them without gutting is preferred. Juices inside the body cavity will taint the meat. Also I advise skinning the fillets.

WE find them on sonar and drop small jigs tipped with pieces of minnow.
I was catching tilapia on small wet flies from a bass pond in southern Alabama last fall while fishing for bluegills.
I seen hispanic fishermen and women in South Florida catch huge Tilapia on simple hand lines, Their bait was a worm rigged under a float to hang just off the bottom.
I grew up in South Florida and have caught a variety of exotic tilapia in residential lakes / canals. For bait, I've found simple breadballs w/ float will usually do the trick... Regardless of the freshwater species I am fishing, I always bring bread and throw it around my area to get the small fish stirred up and the big ones interested.
I've also caught tilapia on live worms / a float, small jigs and minnows. During spawning they'll attack just about anything to protect the nest.
