Lake Ida for Peacock Bass Fishing


What a good day on Lake Ida for Peacock Bass Fishing with Shirley Carter and her husband Jessie from Hinesville, GA. The couple was out for two days, one peacock bass fishing and one out in the Everglades.

The peacock bass fishing was a perfect day; Shirley and Jessie requested to fish with artificial lures only. Knowing these fish, I still suggested getting a few shiners, just in case. We had an incredibly wet day ahead of us, and I did not know how it may affect the peacock bass fishing. So, she agreed we pick up two dozen, and off we went to Lake Ida to hunt for the mighty peacock bass.

When we got there, I really didn’t know what to expect; I was hoping we could get in the day with such bad weather in the forecast. Lone behold, the peacock bass were just where I thought they would be. As unpredictable as they are, they reacted just as I thought…maybe it’s me, just perhaps I am starting to feel like a peacock bass. Either way, it worked out really well; by the end of the day, we lost count of how many peacock bass we caught…but I know it was well over 30 all on artificial lures.

Till next time, tight lines and good fishing….
