Bass Fishing South Florida Report 3/01/2008


Alan and Tom (far left) had the 2 biggest peacock bass of the day in South Miami.

Today was the second day of our bass fishing trips with the SGS International corporation and some of their customers. On day 1 we fished yesterday out in the Florida everglades for largemouth bass and had an absolute blast. We had one of the nicest days of the year so far and between the 3 boats that we had out the final count was over 200 bass caught and released in just 8 hours with a couple fish in the 4 to 5 pound class! That is the Florida everglades in March for you.

Day 2 was an excursion into the urban concrete jungles of South Miami in search of the butterfly peacock bass. The Brazilian species is a hard fighting member of the cichlid family of fishes. The peacocks were originally brought to South Florida to aid in controlling the ever growing number of non-native species that were taking over some of our local canals. Now we are starting to see a growing number of bigger fish which is great for us as well as anglers who visit the area.  The peacock bass provide us urban anglers a world class fishery right in our own back yards. To put it bluntly we had an unusually slow day of peacock bass fishing today. We had 3 boats out again and our numbers were much different from yesterday yet we still all had a great time. On my boat we had 6 fish all day with one in the 4 pound range and a couple between 2 and 3. Buds boat had 6 peacocks as well with one nicer fish that was donated to some needy people fishing near the boat ramp. Victor’s boat took home big fish honors with 3 fish over 5 pounds yet still only managed to land 9 fish in total which again is very slow for us. You can see two of those beasts in the picture above.
