Peacock Bass Fishing with Varble
Matt Varble and son from North Carolina targeting the exotic peacock bass in Miami Airport Lakes, nice action today. Using live bait to provide more opportunities for larger peacocks.
Miami Airport lakes supports excellent populations of butterfly peacock and largemouth bass that average about 14 inches. The biggest butterfly peacock (10 pounds) ever confirmed in Florida came from this canal. Fishing for butterfly peacock is usually best from March through May, but they are caught consistently throughout the year. Butterfly peacock feed only during daylight and normally close to shore, although schooling peacocks will sometimes feed aggressively in open water. Largemouth bass fishing tends to be best during the winter when the water cools, and early in the morning, evenings, and even at night during the summer.
