Since July and August are slow business months, Papa Joe usually takes some time off to relax and escape the summer the sun and heat. However, sometimes he goes fishing for fun. This year, while visiting some of his grandchildren in Ft. Lauderdale, he and his son, Mike, fished Peacock Bass in Miami. The action was hot and heavy on top-water early, and a little live bait was a help by 11 AM. In addition to the Peacocks, they managed a small Tarpon, a Snook, and a few Largemouth Bass. They had an excellent guide (Steve Albaum 888 629-2277), nice new Skeeter boat, G-Loomis rods and was very knowledgeable and put them on the fish 1st thing. Here are a couple of photos. All of the fish were released to fight another day.
