    nice peacock bass, is this in Florida? I know they are there. I used to catch them in Hawaii on Kauai in the sugar cane fields all the time. Gotta love the aggressive nature of how they fight at attack bait.

    What a horn on that male peacock bass. Nice looking too and the fish. :D How big do they get in FL? When I was on Kauai they would get to about 7lbs as I missed the state record by 3/4 of a pound back in the day.

    Aww, Thanks! They get pretty big here! This fish was about 6-7lbs, but Kristen C. (the amazing lady angler I caught this with - see her pics above) gets them upwards of 8lbs all the time. Great-fighting fish. So much fun to catch! Had no idea they had them out in Hawaii! :)

    The speckled peacock bass grows the largest. Both speckled and butterfly peacocks were introduced to S. Florida, but only the Butterfly survived. Pretty sure the ones in Hawaii are butterfly peacocks.

    From Wikipedia:

    "In 1984, after 10 years of study, Florida officials deliberately introduced butterfly peacock bass and speckled peacock bass to the southern region of that state[3] to prey on other non-native species, including the oscar (Astronotus ocellatus), Midas cichlid (Amphilophus citrinellus), and the spotted tilapia (Tilapia mariae). Their introduction also provided additional sport fishing opportunities for anglers. While the butterfly peacock bass has flourished in Florida, the speckled peacock bass has not. Therefore, it is now illegal to kill or possess speckled peacock bass in Florida. The butterfly peacock bass tend to flourish in the canals and fresh waterways throughout south Florida."

    They are the butterfly peacocks in Hawaii. It was always awesome to watch them stock the tilapia and just tear them up.
