Peacock Bass and Snake Head Fishing in South Florida 2-30-2012
I had some really great guys down for some snake head and peacock bass fishing. Trude and his father, Jason were fishing one last time together as Trude will be leaving the country for two years. Jason had fished for the peacocks a few years ago with another guide and the trip made quiet an impression on him. We loaded the livewell with shiners and headed south to the motherland of peacock bass. The peacocks were easy to find and more than willing to fight. They boated somehwere around twenty-five with the biggest one tipping the boga at six pounds.
The snake head fishing was as expected....awesome! Trude was blown away at the fight in the snake head. We caught these on spinner baits.
