Peacock Fishing In The Summer
With inconsistent weather all summer, it has been tricky to time the peacock bass bite correctly. Long spells of heat with minimal rain have given me the most success, with days upwards of thirty peacocks hooked and landed. Fly Fishing has been good as well, with some fish moving along the banks eager to take a clouser or a well presented streamer. As the summer progresses and continues to heat, fishing should improve along with it. Recent clients over the past week have had good success, with our past three catching 11, 26, and 25 fish in four hour time periods. No fish over five pounds have been caught but one fish over 7 pounds was hooked and lost. A few Jaguar Guapote have been caught as well, ranging anywhere from 1-2 pounds. We have been using 20lb Bullbuster Braid to catch all of our fish.
TIP: This time of year, spawning fish are not covering the banks everywhere you look. Cover as much ground as possible and explore canals that you previously thought held no fish. Put in the time exploring and you will be rewarded. This is a time of year where knowing a lot of locations to catch fish really pays off. Fish may also hold deeper, so don’t be afraid to try some deep diving artificials.
