Default Re: Florida Peacock Bass

I fished them while in Panama back in the 70's. Brace yourself if you can get into a school of them! When they are biting I promise you will tire long before they do. I fished a 5wt and thought I'd bring it home in pieces a time or two. You can get any size. My largest was over six or seven pounds and it about tore me up. Most were in the two to three pound size. Good eating fish. We used them to make ceviche, using local limes and lemons picked right off of the tree. The locals baked or fried them, depending on what side of the canal you were on. I did not know they were here in the states.
