Well, it sure doesn't feel like it was 25 years ago when TIME Magazine sent a writer and a photographer with us to explore a fish known to few: the peacock bass.
We have learned a lot since then, including ditch the fiberglass boats, and go aluminum. And, take a chain saw.
Makes getting into those lagoons a whole lot easier.
Two 16 pound bass. Greg and I doubled up, and that is commonly the case as these fish fight to take-away, literally. My guide is holding my fish- you can only see the tail end, but it is a nice one.
We caught many over 20, and 2 over 25. I can't find the picture of my 25/4, but I am still looking...........................
