Where is the closest place from here to catch a Peacock Bass. Thanks.

    You can find them in the water over by the Miami airport. The blue lagoon.

    That's over 300 miles, is there any place closer?

    They are only found in Dade and Broward Counties. Peacocks can't tolerate water temperatures much below 70 degrees. They get wiped out in the northern part of their range during freezes like this one.

    Quite a few in Southern Palm Beach County, too Doc. Mostly in the Lake Ida Chain.
