The past two days I had repeat client Rick Blom from Florida and his fishing Buddy Bob”Zoo” Wasileski from Pittsburgh. It only took Bob one day to call and book three days of fishing trip after seeing Rick picture’s from last November.
The boys went right from the Airport in Fort Lauderdale to fishing for Peacock Bass in Miami.
The action was non stop right from the start, being this was Bob’s first time he got broken in right away. After about a dozen peacock’s in the boat Zoo had the thrill of his life and never experienced a fight like this on the end of his line.
Zoo pitched a shiner onto this shadow he saw , and never expecting what happened next. The rod was almost pulled out of his hand as he battled this Monster Peacock Bass for over 5 mins. before I put the net under this trophy 6 lb.10 oz Butterfly Peacock Bass. This Monster was caught on a # 1 Daiichi Circle Bleeding Hook

On day two the boys headed to The Everglades and catching well over 100 Bass all on Gambler Ace wacky style. Most of the bass were in the 1 – 2.5 lb. range with the biggest being 4  lb. caught by Rick’
Now on day three Zoo felt he didn’t get his fill of Peacock Fever, so it was back to Miami. This turned out to be a banner day with catching over 40 peacock Bass . This day Rick held the bragging rights after landing this Trophy 5 LB. 15 oz. Butterfly Peacock Bass. All this action was captured on video.

The Boys had gone home with several memories to hold onto from their experience in Florida fishing with “The Hawghunter” Capt. Frank Carbone who is a full time Licenses Guide, guiding 7 days a week.
