On-board with us, this last week of October was Dennis and his son Matthew from Houston Texas.
The first day of there fishing trip we start out on Lake Okeechobee, unexpectedly the bite slowed down so we decided to pull-out and head for the Everglades. The two were very excited to see just how good the Everglades could be.
The Everglades has really been dependable and it did not let us down this time. The O’Neils managed to catch 20 or more fish in just a few hours of fishing which lead to a fantastic finish for day one!
On day two we went to Miami for the exotic Peacock Bass. We started our morning off by throwing artificial baits but it really wasn’t that productive, so we went to pitching shiners and we started picking off the fish. We moved around to a couple of different areas and picked away at the fish, we also managed to catch a Snook. Which is always fun to watch the customers light up as the fish is dancing on top of the water.
By the end off the trip they caught over seventeen fish up to five pounds.

Till next time tight lines and good fishing….
