Three Day Fly Fishing Adventure
Fall is the perfect time to adventure out in Miami peacock bass fishing. A Three Day Fly Fishing Adventure is a must experience for all those that love to catch bass on a fly. December is a great month to catch some quality peacock bass.
I had the pleasure of fishing with James Kammel traveling from Tampa Bay to catch Miami peacock bass. He is a retired Commander for the United States Coast Guard and still gives his time to them as a civilian.
We had a tough morning bite on our first day. As the afternoon warmed up the water, the peacock bass began to bite. Weather conditions held up great for us with temperatures at 83 degrees and water temperatures at 78.
James was really excited to catch 10 peacock bass in an hour once things got started. The biggest fish weighed 3 pounds. He was ready for two more days on the water fishing with a black and white Clouser minnow. Also, he used a red and orange minnow as well.
It Continued on Day Two
On the second day, we experienced similar conditions. The fly pattern and water temperatures were the same. Patience played a part in this trip and had to be consistent in targeting specific areas. James put another 10 peacock bass in the boat weighing up to 4 pounds.
On the final day, the conditions stayed the same and the bite was also consistent. James caught 10 peacock bass weighing up to 3 pounds. It was a great way to wrap up our 3 days on the water in Miami.
James and I had a lot of fun fishing for peacock bass on the fly. He surely is one great fisherman and really knows how to work a fly rod. He said this was the best fishing trip he has ever had.
I want to thank James for fishing with us and we look forward to catching more peacock bass when he comes to visit next time. Keep a tight line and we will see you on the water next time.
