    Miami Peacock Bass Report 08/12/12

    The Peacock bass fishing here in Miami is going steady. Good fishing is to be had early and later in the day. The afternoon rain showers are cooling off the temps and creating a good amount of current....which is always a good thing while fishing for Peacock Bass. They seem to be keying in on the huge hatch of minnows we've had this year. So remember to try to match the hatch while fising for them. I had the opportunity to get out for a couple of hours between the rains and do some scouting with my better half. She out fished me again...guess she's learning.lol Anyways we took some shots of the day for yous to check out. Thanks for reading our report.

    Great job on the peacocks! They're steady here in Broward as well...Don't worry about being out-fished by your better half, my girlfriend out fishes me every time we get the chance to fish together...
    Did you get the fish on live bait or lures?

    Its awesome looking! Do they fight similar to a largemouth bass?

    They actually fight better than bass, and don't give up so easily. Not that I have anything against bass, but a Peacock acutally fights more like a Snook.

    So its like a saltwater catch in freshwater. How are they to eat? I've never heard of these fish before

    You'd be surprised on how hard they fight. Yes, their edible, but it's all catch and release for us. Here's a link the the FWC's regs on them.
