peacock action doesn't stop!

took the week off from fishing last week to focus on my class and boy did it kill me! after finally resolving things I headed out early this week and ohh my goodness did it feel good to be out on the water again, made a visit to my gold mine peacock spot again and it once again produced fantastic results! didnt have much time to fish it but it produced about 5 or 6 nice peacocks each averaging 3lbs! saw a few more that were easily over 5lbs but sadly they weren't in the mood :banghead here's a couple pictures from that day's adventure!

ended up completing the freshwater, urban slam that day! After that day I had very successful outings during the middle of the week in random spots catching many peacock. Earlier today I had the great opportunity to take the good people from Treasure Coast Tackle out for some peacock action, the day didnt produce too many peacock but we all still had a great time, I caught 3 peacock and a nice largemouth all on the fly rod.

the LM looks small in the picture but it was a pretty nice LM for the fly rod, very fun fight. After the TCT crew left, I decided to try another pipe just north of where we fished and things went crazy! caught about 6 or 7 more peacock, biggest being a fat 3lber!

ended up catching a nice cichlid too to complete the freshwater slam for the day! It was an epic week of fishing and the peacock gave me a very warm welcome back gift! tight lines everyone!!
There's no such thing as too much bait!
