    Do you have a boat? I only fish on boats.


    We can use a little john boat but fishing off land is better for peacocks IMO

    Peacocks are on my bucket list along with sails and marlin, can you do those also?
    I'll shoot you an IM next time I'm down that way.

    HA, I'll split the trip cost with you and lowe-boy when i make it down there. That way we will have some beer money left over to celebrate our catch.

    I might be in on this. Wonder if he can take up to six people. Is there a mate that needs to be tipped?

    I'll take 6 people we would just have to negotiate a price and tips arent expected but they are accepted.

    This is awesome, one question.. will you fillet our catch for that price?

    I prefer if you just catch and release

    My schedule is erratic, but I might be willing to pay for lessons over the internet so I can get over there on a spur of the moment trip. It is just too difficult to pre-arrange a trip, and I would hate to have to pay a cancellation fee. What is your cancellation fee?


    What would be the cost of a how-to guide to fishing the peacocks? I am talking maps with locations marked, best time of day, proper tackle, best bait, and the proper lunch to bring along? People share that kind of info on the regional fishing forums for grouper, snapper, snook, tarpon, cobia, sailfish, dolphin, etc., but the peacock bass fishermen are always so tight-lipped about their tricks of the trade.

    I can appreciate that, but say for $15 more or so, can I keep just 6-7. My little brother has a condition and needs to eat only fish, something to do with needing more vitamin E or B.. I really don't remember.

    I am sorry to hear that but the lakes and canals that I catch peacocks in aren't very clean I do not recommend eating any of them.

    that's probably true. those fish would probably give you enough mercury to turn on the AC every time you walk by it.

    Listen I'm a meat fisherman and it appears your hunting some kind of meat too...but if I can't stomp the fish on it's head after I catch it I'm going to have to try and find another shoreline peacock guide.

    I understand your concern, but for him it might not matter. I'm seriously considering this, I got some money from his EBT card that I was able to exchange for cash last week.. should me and my little brother book with you before or after the next new moon?

    Do you take credit cards? Also, tell me more about the carp trips. I've seen pictures of huge ones from down here, what kind of gear do I need for those beasts? The heaviest I have is only a 50w. Thanks!
