Hello this is Captain Robert E. Miley just leaving Lake Ida on a peacock bass fishing trip.
I had the opportunity to take Ken Tyson, his brother-in-law Dan and Paul peacock bass fishing on Lake Ida. They flew in from Kentucky and we had an awesome day today. Weather was super nice and we caught approximately 25 of peacock bass, nothing over 4-pounds. We also caught one big clown fish and several large-mouth bass. Awesome trip, they are going to be down here for a couple of days and going salt-water fishing tomorrow. They had an awesome trip with me, the water temperature was 83 degrees and the air temperature 88. It was nice and comfortable. We found some areas where the peacock bass were hiding and we caught them really good. They had an outstanding trip, we caught them straight on live bait. We used 10-dozen shiners and we caught fish all day long.
Tight lines, goodbye! Thank you for choosing us.
