Peacock Bass Fishing is Family Fun!

The Bullseye Snakeheads are the ones we have in Florida and are not considered game fish, so there are no limits or seasons on them. Bullseye looks like bowfins and have teeth you can catch them on livebait and artificial lure. If you catch a snakehead, Do kill it and do not release it back into the water. You should never release any kind of fish into waters it was not caught in. We have some great fishery in Florida and exotic fish can and will wipe out other species, which makes our state the fishing capital of the world. Florida law makes it a crime for anyone to release any exotic fish into state waters.

Thanks guys looking forward to seeing you again.

Till next time tight lines and good fishing….

Miami Peacock Bass Fishing is a Blast!

Brett,
I wanted to thank you once again for the Peacock trip last Tuesday. I had a blast.
Thank you and I am already looking forward to coming down there next year for a peacock and snakehead trip.
Linn Pearson< **********************************************
June 15, I had the pleasure of taking out Linn Pearson from Texas on Peacock Bass fishing adventure.
I picked Linn up at Marriott in Dania right next to the Bass Pro Shop my favorite store. We usely catch allot of peacocks on live bait, but that day the Artificial baits were what the peacocks preferred jerk baits and rattletrap that day. Linn caught over thirty exotic hard fighting Peacock bass in super half day of South Florida Bass Fishing.
Had a great time with Linn and looking forward to seeing him again.

Till next time tight lines and good fishing….

Snake Head Fishing in Florida

Today started the hunt of the mighty Florida Snakehead for the next two days. Richard from Orlando, Florida has traveled around the world fishing for Snakehead and has the stories to prove it. When he heard that they were in South Florida…well let’s say he was one of the few that got excited about the news. But for me it’s been a while since I have had someone so excited to fish, and for Snakeheads of all things.

SO…he headed right down just to fish for the bullseye snakeheads in South Florida, because of the heat index we only fished short days. Richard has been to Asia among other places, but never fished all day with topwater for the Snakehead, so this was a treat.

The time on the water was productive, we managed to get several fish with a few nicer ones like the one above weighed over seven (7) pounds. All of our fish where caught on topwater, so it was pretty cool to see the massive explosions not counting the fact that they fight really well.

All the fish that were caught, were destroy as by State Law reguirments. So if you decide to make your way down to South Florida and want to get in some crazy topwater Snakehead fishing action, know that it is State law that we cannot release this species.

Had a great time with Richard and looking forward to seeing him again.

Till next time tight lines and good fishing….

Snakehead Fishing in South Florida

Today we had the pleasure of going after a new exotic fish called the Snake-head.
We started the day searching around, as the day went on we found the type of cover the snakeheads where holding in. By by the end of day we caught over 15 snake heads all on topwater. Let me tell you, if you are looking for a strong fighting fish you may want to try fishing for the snakehead. They jump straight out of water and are always trying to shake your hook.

Fishing for the snake head is a blast!

If you are visiting South or Central Florida for work or vacation and want to experience the best bass fishing that there is to offer then please give us a call.

Snakehead Predator may not cause trouble

Studies show snakeheads do less harm than generally thought

Chronicle News Services

Snakehead always worries fisheries managers.

“One of the finest fish I’ve had,” Arostegui, a retired physician, said.

Arostegui, who has caught and eaten seafood delicacies everywhere from Suriname to Thailand, had bagged this dinner the previous day in a narrow, muddy weed-lined canal that runs along a busy highway in North Lauderdale, Fla.

He served it to his family and three guests in his elegant dining room, along with white rice and salad. Everyone pronounced the entree delicious.

It was a 4½-pound snakehead — a slimy, ugly freshwater fish native to Asia that has been the scourge of fisheries managers from Florida to New York to Arkansas for the past eight years.

Despite poisoning and draining ponds in northeastern states and making possession of the live exotics a criminal offense, snakehead populations are slowly spreading from water bodies, where it is believed they were deliberately released.

Paul Shafland, who heads the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission’s nonnative fish lab in Boca Raton, said the bullseye snakehead — the only one of 25 snakehead species detected in Florida — is found mostly in north Broward’s C-14 system.Shafland said. “If you catch them, eat them. Don’t release them.”

But so far, the pesky exotic hasn’t turned into the environmental disaster that some predicted.

Early results from the FWC’s most recent electrofishing study in the C-14 – (stunning fish with a mild electrical charge so they can be examined) — shows that although snakeheads are abundant, they are not destroying populations of largemouth and peacock bass — the two main gamefish species in South Florida lakes and canals.

Examining the stomach contents of 127 dead snakeheads, they found the remains of 13 of their own species plus one bluegill, 11 mosquitofish, seven warmouth, two peacock bass, several lizards, bufo toads, small turtles, a rat and a snake.

No remains of largemouth bass were found.

Till next time tight lines and good fishing….
