A few Peacock on a nice weekend.

hey fellas! had some time to kill recently so I decided I'd head out to some of the local peacock canals. I was tossing flies and small hardbaits. I lost count of how many I caught, and had a heck of a time!

got a few more pics but they're all peacock. you get the picture. there's nothing to it. no special live bait needed. just get your favorite hardbait or fly and walk the canals. some of these are from Kendall, and the others are a little further north.

tight lines,
HA

    Nice peas, and nice post! I see you blurred out the areas (smart move)

    That 2nd photo is a real nice fish, love the red on the tail. How did you take the pictures?

    it's just a regular Olympus Camera. set the auto on it, step away, and viola, the picture is taken. I like to throw a small pink clouser that I make at home, and I put the smallest dumbell eyes on it. Thanks.
