My youngest son and I took a trip to Florida to visit relatives and Peacock bass has been on our bucket list for a long time. Liam caught a few nice bass in the everglades and they put up such a good fight! Here is a bunch of photos from our trip from Port Charlotte to Key West. We stopped at Robbies to hand feed the tarpon and it was really cool seeing those up close. The same lure that caught the peacock bass, also worked on snook and tarpon that we caught and released the next night under a bridge in Port Charlotte. We also bow fished for mullet with my cousin, we didn’t get any that day but he’s been pretty successful with the bow on his previous trips. Snook are so fun to catch! they are great fighters..you know when they are around and feeding, they make a strange suction noise, almost like a popping. Tarpon also make these noises and they are super fun to catch..once you hook them, hang on tight! The everglades canals hold tons of Gar and snakeheads and some of the biggest bluegill I have ever seen and if you're lucky like we were, there are some Peacock bass.
