This week we had Joe and Athena Mitchell from the Bronx in New York fishing with us, I had the pleasure of spending the last 2 days with them. Day 1 with me we went down to Miami for the hard fighting peacock bass.
This couple are long time repeat customer and a blast to fish with, we had a pretty good day boating about 16 peacock bass. Right at the end of the day Joe hooked into a tarpon that was about 25 to 30 pounds, he got to fight this fish for about 5 minutes. Just when the fight was about over, the line nicked the prop on the outboard and broke off. The tarpon jumped 4 times and gave us a great aerial show.
On day 2 we went to Lake Ida to do something a little different. The day started of hot and ended pretty good, they boated 25 fish with a 6 pound kicker large-mouth bass. I think this was Joe’s personal biggest bass ever!
I’m looking forward to seeing them again in March, maybe Joe can break his record again.
