Peacock Bass & 1st Snook EVER ~Florida Fishing

Took my best friend fishing and we caught a bunch of peacock bass and some snook with swimbaits targeting bedding areas just before the full moon. What people don’t know is peacock bass behave a lot like blue gill or bream because that’s their closest relation. We managed to fish for bass at just the right time.

Weather was hot balmy summer conditions, no wind no rain and temperatures in the 90’s. The whole key was these fish were spawning and locked on beds and we could sight fish for them which made it amazingly fun!
