We had been planning a trip with a buddy of mine down south in Broward and he said he was free Saturday. We drove down to Broward to meet Adam from Reel Deal Adventures for some peacock bass action. It was cloudy, but he didn't seem worried. One of the first spots resulted in my 1st peacock and a nice largemouth on the Unfair Lures Stickminno. We checked a few other spots and saw fish, but none that were willing to bite. Finally spotted a pea that wanted to eat. Hooked up and drag coming out. A solid 3 to 4 pound fish. Next spot, Dad got back to back 3 pounders. Checked a few more spots with no luck. Fish weren't aggressive due to the little amount of sunlight we were getting. I pulled out another solid fish and then we finished the day catching smaller fish on the mighty might! Which is a 3ft rod with 4 pound line. Had a great time and Adam did a great job jumping from spot to spot to find the fish. Would highly recommend Reel Deal Adventures if you haven't caught a peacock and would like to!
Got home around 5 that evening, ate some dinner, and then decided it was time to go snook fishing. First Light Snook Jigs on one rod, Unfair Lures Stickminno on the other. First spot and Dad sticks a solid snook on the hawk! First slot fish of the night. Turns around and casts out the other side of the boat with the Stickminno and fish on again! This time on the 3000 reel. It got in the current and stripped some drag, but turns out to be a slightly under slot fish. Fished around for about an hour with no action so decided to hit a seawall that has been good in the past. Good call as Dad sticks another slot fish on the Stickminno! They were crushing it. Carefully land it and take some pics before a safe release. A few minutes later, I make a perfect cast by some structure and hook up. I had to be feet away from the structure. I do my best to pull the fish away, but got on some oysters and broke off. I'm sure I blew my only chance. Hit one spot on the way in, 2nd cast, slammed! Pull it up and it's another slot fish. This time on the flare hawk! Ended up with a pretty good night. Caught a few smaller snook on a dock light on the way in. Great day of fishing all around.
