Delray Freshwater Fishing Trip 1Sandy and his best friend Ed were traveling to Delray Beach, FL to explore what the peacock bass fishing had to offer. Luckily, they hit it just right and the bass was biting strong. Captain Robert Miley had the pleasure of fishing with them. These guys are long-time repeat clients of Bass Online and fishing with Captain Bob.

The peacock bass fishing was outstanding on this fishing trip. Fishing conditions paired up and made the fishing trip even better with air temperatures in the 90s and water temperatures in the mid-80s. Live bait was the preferred choice of bait on this charter. It helped put over 30 peacock bass in the boat.

As the weather begins to cool, the peacock bass will begin to spawn. That is when you will catch the aggressive males and large females. Sandy and Ed had a blast catching 30 peacock bass with most of the fish over 3 pounds. They did land a giant peacock bass over 5 pounds as well. Also, the largemouth bass was biting with one in the 4-5 pound range.

Peacock bass fishing is heating up. Sandy and Ed will be back for more of this incredible action on the Lake Ida Chain. Captain Miley is looking forward to their next adventure in the near future!

Unfortunately, the peacock bass was chewing on live bait and that was yet again the preferred method to catch fish.
