Florida Keys To Peacock Bass Fishing Miami Falls
Our day began setting out on an adventure to do some Peacock Bass Fishing Miami Falls with Deborah Barry and her son Elliot. They traveled all the way to Miami from Madison County, Wisconsin. The weather in Florida was extra appealing since its snowing back home. The Miami Keys is a great vacation spot during these winter months.
Freshwater floods South Florida with the ever elusive peacock bass ruling those waters. They are hard fighting and are irresistible when given the opportunity to fish for them. It was a slower bite but we made it happen.
The air temperature was right around 58 degrees to start, which is cold for Miami. Peacock bass were forced down in deeper water. Once the sun pushed away the clouds around 11:30- 12:00 is when everything turned for us. That is also when the water temperature rose to 73 degrees.
We had a lot of fun with great success. The largest peacock bass was 3 1/2 pounds. We could not find a giant but we caught plenty of bass. We also caught a variety of different fish. We caught an exotic species to Florida, the Plecostomous. It was like 5 pounds and it sure was long. We also caught some largemouth and a cat fish. It was a great day with no big ones on the boat but we did encounter one.
As I was helping bait a line, I had one rod hanging over the side with a shiner on the surface. All of a sudden a Big Peacock Bass comes up and slaps it real hard. She then sucks it under and the rod flung up and hit me in the arm. I was kinda startled since she made a big commotion on the water.
What a great time. Deborah and Elliot were really pleased with their trip. They are headed back down to the Keys to finish up their vacation.
