They were on my list 5 years ago. Glad I went for them . They are a blast! Aggressive as all get out! Throw 8 casts at em and watch out on the 9th ! Bam ! Ton of Bricks! Catch the male let him go then work on the female. Catch her , release half hour later they are both back on the bed ready to start all over again.

If Miami wasn't there, it would be perfect.

I see you guys lipping the Bass but I've seen others using grips. Do they have teeth or just sandpaper lips like Striped Bass?

I hear ya!! Been going down twice a year for 9 yrs to visit family and fish with my Dad out of Key Largo. Always dread coming back except for the summer trout season. I'd like to summer here and spend the rest of the year in the Keys!!

Great report and pics!! Thanks for the share!!

I'm with you Davo . This year marked my 39th year of making the trip. It never gets old.
Marco their mouths are just like Largemouths very easy to lip. Then again my son says I'm crazy cause I've been known to lip pickerel.
But seriously the mouth of the Butterfly Peacock is smooth.

Oh and before I forget I just want to publicly thank Grassonfly for hooking me up with a new spot in Largo. Beautiful scenery and wildlife and plenty of fish. As long as you got there early before the kayak hatch you were in Paradise. Thank you Grass,.

Looks like you had a great time. I love the canal system in Miami. Lots of iguanas laying out in the sun.

Iguanas and a couple of Tegus. Got to see an Iguana swimming across one of the canals. Really cool. And a big python. Like I said a little piece of the Amazon. So cool!
