The Peacock Bass is Hugging the Seawall on Lake Ida
Hello, this is Capt Robert Miley I’m getting ready to leave Lake Ida.
Today I had a 6 hour trip with Sandy, and when I got up this morning the air temperature was 64 degrees and the water temperature was 66.
The bite was a little slow we had to pick at them, the largemouth bass was biting really good though, we didn’t catch anything really big our biggest one was almost 4 pounds, we caught about 20 of them, and it was a very nice day.
It started warming up by the end of the day with the water temperature at 70 degrees, and that’s exciting because they really get to chewing on anything when the temperature is above 70 degrees.
The fish are a little bit deep and they’re hugging the sea wall just as tight as they can, if you can throw your bait or lure right against the seawall, it wakes them up and you might get a reaction strike, and that’s the way they’ve been biting today.
We had an exciting trip, and we caught plenty of decent fish, this captain Robert Miley, and I will see you next time on the water.
