I received a call back in Jan from Nici Haerter from Florida. Nici is an Avid Angler, Freelance Sports Writer & Professional Musician.
Nici wanted to do a story on the Peacock Bass, a bucket list fish, so she called on yours truly.
Nici writes for Coastal Angler & Adventure Sports Outdoor magazines & others. So I decided to take them to one of my favorite locations , “The Blue Lagoon”. Joining her was her husband Skip and mother Joann. Niki Fam
The day started out with a few missed strikes, but once she got the hand of things the connection was made. All three anglers were successful in putting the peacock Bass in the boat and making for some great shots.
Nici stated that if she caught a Trophy Peacock Bass that not only will it make the magazine , but also the Cover story. Well caught around 11:30 she tossed her shiner at a point , then her spool started singing , thinking it was a Tarpon or a Snook, and here’s what she caught , a 6 .5 LB.  Butterfly Peacock Bass.
 Niki 6lb.
So, The Hawghunter , Capt. Frank Carbone is going to be in the April edition of Coastal Angler Magazine . The peacock bass fishing has been excellent since JAN. and April is one of the prime months to score a “Trophy”. Enjoy the article and give us a call and see for yourself why everyone feels these scrappy fighters pound for pound are the hardest fighting freshwater species.
