I’ve been trying for a few years on trips to Florida to catch a Peacock bass. Finally laid into a 3lb, 19inch one this morning. Heck of a fighting fish, and gorgeous. Hammered the crankbait like a freight train. Also saw several jumping 3 feet out of the water, though I couldn’t get them to hit my top water. Also at first light, got a 7.4lb, 30 inch Snook. I had no idea what it was when I set the hook, but it started stripping line like a torpedo. Let him run for a good 5 minutes before bank flipping him. Cool experience. For reference I’m wearing size 14 shoes. Not bad for a quick mornings trip.
