4-25-15 peacock bass

My son asked me if we could try and catch some peacock bass last week since he has never caught one before. After doing a little research I figured that we would give it a shot so on Saturday so we headed down to the Ft Lauderdale area with an assortment of artificial baits to give it a shot. We bounced around down there from spot to spot and it wasn't long before we found a real nice one sitting on the edge of the shore line. My son made a cast to him and he hammered the bait. After a short battle my son landed his first ever peacock bass and it was a decent one at that. We bounced around some more and ended up going 4 for 5 on peacock bass and we caught a dozen or so large mouth bass. We also caught numerous Mayan Cichlids and spotted tilapias. It was a fun easy trip and some great quality time with my son. I still haven't got the picture thing figured out but hopefully Long can help me get a photo or two on here shortly.
