Today we had out Brian Pitell and his dad from Sevenfields, PA. They flew in for business and decided to find time to fish a couple of days with us. The first day was in Miami for some hard fighting Peacock bass. Neither angler had ever caught a Peacock bass so I know this was going to be a real treat and was it ever!
Because of travel arrangements we never started fishing until late afternoon, but this just proves what I have always said, the peacock bass bite all day.
They started out with a few average sizes Florida Peacock Bass, then with just a little experience under there belt it happens. Dad, hooks into a 5.12 lb peacock that simply show both of them why they are called the “mighty Peacock bass“. After a good long fight, dad landed the beautiful fish and we took those unforgettable pictures that should last a lifetime.
Sorry, but the picture will be posted soon. They caught in the half-day afternoon 20 plus fish with the 5.14lber being the biggest on this day.
We are going to get an early start tomorrow for some Everglades bass fishing on day two, so check our Everglades blog for the day two fishing report.
