Peacock Bass Fishing!
Today I went peacock bass fishing with guide Steve McDonald from bassmasters.com. I went with Hippo and little Hippo too. We fished Miami canals near the airport. On little Hippo's first cast he caught his first peacock bass. Soon we all three had fish on board. The highlight of the day was sight fishing for fish on their beds. Both Hippo and I were able to accurately cast right on the fish bed to get some nice size fish. The male fish have an interesting hump on their head. The last couple of fish were on artificial lures which made it even more of a challenge. It was a little scary driving 50MPH in canals around town. Watch your head on those bridges!
