Today was another good day of Florida Peacock Bass with Elmer Branson from Louisiana. Elmer drove all the way down from Orlando, Florida today, just to go out and do some serious peacock bass fishing. When we met up I told him he was going to get his arm ripped off today, he laughed and said, “I’ve heard that one before.” He just laughed with me when we started in the canal system, he could not imagine fishing like this!

I was a little concerned once we started fishing, as it was a little slow at first. The water had dirtied and made the areas much harder to fish. But as the day went on and we moved around to different locations the peacock bass started to come up to the shorelines. Now the fight would begin, we caught a mess load of fish from 3 to 5 pounds. Elmer was surprised at how hard the peacock bass fights, especially because he fishes for small-mouth bass.

When it was all said and done, Elmer turned and said, “my arm does hurt a little from fighting these fish, but is still attached” as we both laughed mostly about the ones that got away!

Looking forward to seeing Elmer in 3 months again.

See ya real soon,
