Lake Ida Peacock Bass Fishing Guide Capt Robert
I had Scott from Madison Mississippi and his son William flew in from Washington DC. We fished peacock bass for the last 2 days it was really hard fishing for peacock bass for the last two days, I had really scrambled to find them. We got plenty of largemouths we had probably 25 largemouths today, we have probably 50 to 75 largemouths in total. No real big ones and we got two clownfish.
We caught four peacock bass finally, the water temperature has been in the sixties this evening when I pulled off the water it was just now moving up to 72. About an hour before the afternoon there we started getting a few peacock bites, largemouth were still biting as well.
The water temperature this morning, when I put in was 55 degrees. Scott had a good one that got off, he had an awesome time fishing with me we moved all around. We decided we fish Lake Osborne, catching largemouth bass just everywhere you wanted to catch them. Jerk baits, shiners both worked and we tried everything moved. Everywhere was just all over the place and it was an exciting day for him.
He brought a Go-Pro camera and we covered all the nooks and crannies of that chain of lakes. We found a couple of fish that were the deceased cause of the cold weather but it was an awesome time for Scott and his son. They got a lot of fish and really enjoyed it. Scot told me that he just got a little taste of what peacock bass fishing is really like. He said the last one that he caught fought really hard, said man I can appreciate what a big one would be like!
So anyway thanks a lot this has been your Lake Ida Peacock Bass Fishing Guide Capt Robert with the report till next time keep a tight line bye now.
