Peter and his best friend John were traveling from Deland looking to enjoy the south Florida sunshine. While doing so, Florida bass fishing was on the menu. Peter is a real estate developer and John is in Medicine. Captain Robert E Miley had the pleasure of fishing with them on this amazing trip out on the Lake Ida Chain.
Peter and John went out fishing for 8-hours having a blast the whole time. Captain Miley showed them around and hit several different spots. The bass were congregating in 24-25 feet of water around the tops of trees and seawalls. The structure is always a great bet when looking to catch bass of any species.
Peter and John caught a lot of fish with over 30 bass in the boat. The biggest fish weighed in at 5 pounds. They moved around to find two spots that had numbers and big fish. After catching a bunch of numbers, they moved to their big fish spot landing them that giant bass.
It was an awesome trip for Peter and John. They enjoyed every minute of it, especially getting to see what South Florida is all about. One of the best feelings as a guide or captain is putting clients on quality fish that they never experienced before.
Captain Miley is looking forward to getting back out on the water with Peter and John soon!

Brothers Rob and Joe were traveling to South Florida looking to cash in on the action. Peacock bass is one species that has been on their bucket list and it was time to check it off. Rob was traveling from Port St Joe and Joe were traveling from Nantucket on their annual get-together. Captain Kirk Osborne has the pleasure of fishing with them on this fishing trip!
Fishing conditions were perfect for a productive day on the water. It was sunny and calm, making the peacock bass get fired up. Some days just pair up just perfectly for a great day of fishing and this trip was one of them.
After just a few minutes at their first spot, Joe hooked into his first peacock bass. He was throwing a Rapala topwater bait. It took him almost 5 minutes to land this fish, which tipped the scale at over 5 pounds. Can’t beat catching a trophy peacock bass on your first ever trip for them.
After that fish, they made a move and the catching did not stop. Joe caught 4 more peacock bass before Rob was able to catch his first one. As the day was coming to an end, they made one more move resulting in several more peacock bass for both of them.
All in all, they caught over 15 peacock bass and numbers of Mayan cichlids. The action was red hot. Joe said this was by far the best-guided trip they had ever been on. Nothing makes a guide happier than those words out of a satisfied customer.
Captain Kirk is looking forward to their next fishing adventure soon!

Beautiful sunny weather along with a nice breeze with periodical cloud cover made for a great day on the water. The best action on this fishing trip was towards the end of the day.

Just shortly after this fishing trip, Captain Robert Miley was out on the water. He had the pleasure of fishing with Paul, who was traveling from Key Biscayne. Paul really wanted to throw artificial lures for peacock bass. Captain Miley will always get you on fish but you might not always catch large numbers with artificial baits.
Some of the best baits to catch peacock bass on are Yo-Zuri Jerkbaits. Paul caught over 6 peacock bass on these baits. Captain Miley also had live bait but it is hard to fish both. He would let a live bait off the back and it would get eaten. Before they could get leverage on the fish, it would run into the trees.
The weather is slowly changing and water level fluctuations can cause the fish to act differently. Baitfish were around and the bite was steady all trip long. Paul was a happy angler and looking forward to his next adventure! The big ones did not bite but that is why they call it fishing.

Captain Robert E Miley had the pleasure of fishing with this lovely group. They explored the Aerojet Canal System with a lot of success. The smaller peacock bass were biting to start along with Mayan Cichlids. Luckily, this was just a warm-up, especially for Katie. Even though they missed some opportunities with some big peacock bass, Katie landed some beautiful fish.
Katie came in strong on this fishing trip with two big peacock bass in the boat. The first weighed close to 4 pounds and then she improved that catch with a bass weighing in at 4.5 pounds.
What a great day on the water for Katie. She was ecstatic with each catch.
Live bait was the most successful method to catch peacock bass on this trip. In order to have the most success, you had to let the bait sit. After staying patient, a peacock bass will eventually come up from the depths. Once they do, all you have to do is lift your rod, making the bait go crazy. After that, the peacock bass smashes it. Let the fish run with the bait and then set the hook. Hold on as the fish is going to run and put on a show for you.
It was awesome to see a peacock bass try to eat a Mayan Cichlid on this trip as well. After catching one, a big peacock bass came up and tried to eat it. This big fish just couldn’t get the fish in its mouth. They loved watching this happen, adding some additional flavor to their fishing adventure.
South Florida weather was extremely hot on this fishing trip. During these warm months, make sure you bring enough sun protection and hydration. Luckily, your fishing vessel comes equipped with a cooler, ice, and water on every trip.
