Lake Ida Fishing with Captain Robert Miley
“I had the pleasure of fishing with Sandy and Jay. They are long-time repeats of mine but also great golfing buddies. Being South Florida natives, getting out fishing on the Lake Ida Chain is one of their past times. The peacock bass fishing has been fantastic this time of year.
After several cooler days here in Delray Beach, the water temperature on the chain dropped to 81 degrees. Fortunately enough that did not stop the bass from biting. Once the sun peeked through the clouds, it was game on.
Sandy and Jay had a blast catching peacock bass all trip long. They caught over 20 bass on this trip with a mix of both peacock and largemouth bass. Most of the bass caught were in the weight range of 4-5 pounds.
Truly can’t beat it when the action is red hot like that. Sandy and Jay had a great time on the water and I am looking forward to seeing them out soon!” – Captain Robert Miley
Fishing with Captain John Larsen on the Lake Ida Chain of Lakes
“I had an afternoon fishing trip with some awesome clients, John and Decker. They were traveling from California looking to cash in on some peacock bass here in South Florida. The Lake Ida Chain of Lakes was a great match for them and it was on fire.
When fishing Lake Ida, the target species is always going to be peacock bass. One of the blessings about this fishery is that you can also catch largemouth bass, clown knife fish, cichlids, and tilapia to name a few.
John and Decker started out the day catching largemouth bass in the early afternoon hours. As the sun lowered in the sky, the peacock bass started to aggressively bite. They caught about 7-10 largemouth bass, 6 peacock bass, and a handful of cichlids, and a tilapia.
Most of the fish were caught free-lining live baits along with the canal systems. The best tackle to get this job done was using a 10-pound braided line with a 12-pound fluorocarbon leader with a 1/0 owner mosquito hook.
John and Decker had a great time landing fish after fish. I am surely looking forward to our next adventure soon!” – Capt John Larsen
