This past weekend I had a nice couple from NC Brian & Wanda Grice. Wanda being the nice wife that she is gave this to t her husband as Christmas gift. On day one we headed to Blue Lagoon for a day of fishing for Peacock bass. Well my favorite weather girl lied to me , Julie said there was going to be no rain until late afternoon. Well needless to say she was wrong, and got drenched. The wind and rain never let up the entire day.   Brian started thing off with a Mylan cichlid, and Wanda catching her first peacock bass.   With the wind blowing strong we headed to the canals. the water was cleaner and the fishing was better. By noon and totally soaked we went to Sonia’s for a great Cuban lunch. Now on day 2 , it was a totally different day it was beautiful no wind and mostly sunny and a high of 84 degrees. Thing started out with the same as yesterday with the couple on their first cast catching these 2 nice fish Brian with a nice 6 lb Bass and Wanda with a peacock Bass over 4 lb. 19.5 “. They caught several peacock & largemouth bass Brian even battled a huge blue cat. The great thing about fishing South Florida it’s the only place you can catch both species on the same trip. After the 2 Days of fishing Brian caught the biggest Largemouth and Wanda catching the biggest Peacock Bass which she is mounting as this was her biggest fish she ever caught. After they battled these peacock bass they are looking to join me this fall in The Amazon. So get out of the cold and join me this winter and see what all the talk is about with these hard fighting Bass.

The past three days I had return client Nelson Whitlock and his buddy Jason Waters from Delaware. Day 1 – We headed out to Miami for Peacock Bass Nelson stared the day off with two peacock bass, while Jason’s first was a Snook ,then a largemouth and next a Peacock bass to earn him a in-shore Grand Slam. By 11:30 the boys were hungry and tired from a later flight the night before and with 29 fish in the boat they thought it would be time for lunch. After another great lunch at Sonia’s and being exhausted they only fished a short time and catching another 3 peacock ‘s make a total of 32 , which made for a great banner day of fishing plus catch 5 different species.   Day-2 was an exceptional day as we fished The Everglades catching over 50 bass up to 6.10 LB. Most of the bass were caught on Gambler EZ swimmers any dark color and ace baits. The other were caught on spinner baits and jerk baits. Even I caught a nice one trying to stay out of their way, when the bites on it’s on.   Day 3 – With the amazement of how hard the peacock bass fight they wanted more action so off to another fishing hole for peacock bass. Surprising enough they caught 14 Largemouth and 9 peacock bass . “BUT” what made this a great Day for Nelson , was ay 9:40 am he hooked into the fight of his life and he circled the boat 4 time before landing his Trophy 5.10 LB. Male Butterfly Peacock Bass which made his trip. Nelson stated this fish fought more then his 9 LBer. he caught with me 4 years ago on Lake Okeechobee. Well needless to say the boys will be joining me next year in “The Amazon” for the monster 20 LB. Peacock bass. I am already taking reservations for next year.

They wanted only to fish with lures, so that’s what we had done catching 10 including some largemouth and a cichlid.   The peacock’s were all caught on Castaic and Reaction Strike jerkbaits which was the lure of choice while we were film the TV show Bass Dr. which will air on WFN this winter.   The action started as soon as the sun broke through the clouds, as Graham started things off. Mike struggled in the beginning, setting the hook in the morning, but that afternoon was things were better for him.   Next day I had a great couple referred to me by a family member a repeat client of mine. Mike and Crissie Gordon from California. This couple just destroyed the Peacock Bass pitching live bait deep. This was celebrating their 15 th anniversary , and in  less then 4 hrs. managed to put 26 peacock bass into the boat up to over 4 LB. caught by Crissie.
