Peacock Bass (cichlid)
Booking with us ensures that you have a unique fishing adventure and a fun day on the water peacock bass fishing, chasing various cichlids and south Florida exotics. Your fishing guide has over three decades of fishing experience and a local to south Florida waters. Everything is up to date and double-checked to provide you with a safe, sanitized and rewarding experience that the entire family can enjoy. We never target peacock bass while on beds or with fry. Instead, we teach what to look for and avoid as they can be chased year long. Targeting peacocks at their most vulnerable time not only greatly reduces the survival rate of the eggs or fry. But, you rob yourself of their hard runs and acrobatic jumps as they fast during the enitre spawn cycle and will have limited energy. They are only trying to make more, let them. Book a trip today and learn much more on each species targeted.
Why by land and not a boat?
Although we run several boats. We recommend land based trips in freshwater for the added advantages of height, for sight fishing and stealth. Boats displace water often alerting spookish species before a cast is even made. The main motor and trolling motors also displace water and give off early warning signs to the fish targeted. It also makes it very difficult to sight fish properly at water level. In most situations, a vessel would already be on top of the fish or very close when you can visibly see them, followed by a huge shadow a vessel creates. Being on a boat also limits your freedom to pick up and go. Fish move, we need to adapt to be most successful as the majority of canals and lakes in Miami, Florida are connected via culverts under ground, not accesible by boats.
Take the memories home by sharing the high resolution photographs or video with your family and friends at no extra charge. All photos will be taken by the guide. Please do not take any photos or videos without the guide's consent. This may end your day without refund for violating company policy. Do not be that person. These trips are designed for the client and the client only. You may share any photos or videos the guide offers.
Take a ride in the fully equipped sport utility vehicle as we navigate the city. Your guide is a local, let him deal with the traffic as you are comfortably transported. He knows all the back roads, limiting our time in the vehicle and more time with a wet line. The vehicle is rigged like a fully equipped bass boat except it has four wheels, air conditoned, TV and cold berverages an arm's reach away. There is an onboard and portable livewell for fresh caught local live baits at no extra charge, saving the client an avergae of a hudred doallrs per angler. Instead, your guide will show you how to properly trap and catch them so you can teach your family and friends. Bottled water and ice is complimentary but you are welcome to bring any drinks or snacks. We may stop anywhere at any time for any reason throughout the day, ensuring the most comfortable fishing experience. Ages five and up and all experience levels are welcome. Minors under the age of 18 need to have parent consent or a guradian with them during the trip. Each trip is designed for the client. No two trips are ever exactly the same. We also offer local tours, educational tours and excursions throughout the Magic City. Please Contact Us for private tournaments, company tournaments or any large party.
We offer the latest in spin fishing gear with sponsored products by Bull Bay Rods, Florida Fishing Products reels, FINS fishing braid and all terminal tackles. It is highly recommended for fly and casting clients to bring their own gear for a familiar feel. Please contact prior to the trip so you bring the right fly lines, gear and terminal tackle. Custom hand tied flys may be provided. Spend your time fishing, not getting used to gear.
A valid Florida Freshwater Fishing License is the only thing you need to bring. Please contact us with any questions or concerns.
Things you many want to bring are sunscreen, bug repellent and polarized sunglasses are a must. The guide will want you to see what he is seeing. This process not only allows the angler the best seat in the house, but you also learn from your mistakes much quicker through sight fishing. Forgot any of this, no worries! We also keep these products on hand at no extra charge, or we can make a quick stop for any specific needs. Please ask for loaner sun glasses in the morning to ensure a more comfortable fit.
