Today we had out Brian Pitell and his dad from Sevenfields, PA. They flew in for business and decided to fine 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 size Florida peacock bass, then with just a little experience under there belt it happen. 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 life time.
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.
W are going to get a early start tomorrow for some Everglades bass fishing on day two, so check our Everglades blog for the day two fishing report.
