Fort Lauderdale bass fishing can really allow you to experience all that Florida is about. When you are traveling here, you have to set the hook into our exotic species. The Florida peacock bass is the dominant bass that is fished here in Miami. Our local experts have extensive knowledge about fishing here in South Florida. Miami is not the only destination that can produce exotics. Broward county holds excellent waters to do so as well. Captain Robert Miley is our Miami local expert and Captain Brett Isackson is our Broward County local expert.
Captain Robert Miley had the pleasure to go bass fishing with Julie and Don. They were traveling from Dallas, Texas on vacation. While they were here in South Florida, bass fishing was on the list to do. Julie and Don went out on a quick 4 hour trip that led them to experience something they never imagined. It was truly a trip of a lifetime for them.
Several lakes and canal systems fill South Florida. In Miami, one of the best lakes is Airport Lakes. Airport Lakes has a side lake called Blue Lagoon that has produced excellent fishing all year long. One of the impressive parts about fishing in Blue Lagoon is the ability to catch a variety of species. Florida peacock bass dominate the waterway but you can also catch Snook, jack crevalle, largemouth bass, tilapia and a number of other members of the cichlid family.
Airport Lakes is a great destination for anglers that want the ultimate experience. As well, it is great for family, loved ones, and inexperienced anglers that want to set the hook. Every chance to do so can lead to the fish you dream about. Julie and Don can attest to that fact.
Weather conditions were beautiful for this fishing trip. Everything lined up for an absolute slugfest on the water. Julie and Don caught 10 quality peacock bass with all of them in the 3 to 5-pound range. The biggest bass weighed 5.25 pounds. A fish of this magnitude is considered a trophy peacock bass. Along with this great catch, they also caught a monster freshwater Snook.
This Snook weighed in at 17 pounds and took them for a fight they won’t forget. Just shortly after bringing this giant to the boat, they also caught a 12 pound jack crevalle. This fishing trip was a never ending day of catching fish. Julie and Don caught a big tilapia to top it off. When you visit Miami, you can catch all the species you can hope for.
Captain Robert Miley is looking forward to catching so many more exotic species in Miami next time they come back to enjoy South Florida Fishing.
Just shortly after this fishing trip, Julie and Don traveled further north to Broward County to see what they can get themselves into. Captain Brett Isackson had the pleasure of fishing with them at Markham Park which is right on the edge of the Florida Everglades as well as Fort Lauderdale. They were able to experience more bass fishing along with checking off another Florida exotic on their list.
Florida blessed them with another beautiful day on the water. Don and Julie put several more exotic species in the boat including peacock bass and snakeheads. They also caught a Snook but nothing compared to the one they caught in Miami. Don and Julie were excited to get the opportunity to catch the exotic snakehead. They really enjoyed their aggressive strike along with their powerful fight.
Captain Brett Isackson is excited to get another opportunity to catch more species with Don and Julie next time they visit South Florida!

Here is your Florida Peacock Bass Fishing Update:
Captain Robert Miley had the pleasure of fishing with Richard Chizmar on Lake Ida. Richard is a novelist with several books out. While taking a little vacation time, he wanted to explore and catch peacock bass. Captain Miley put him on some quality peacock bass all trip long. It was an awesome day on the water.
The most effective method for catching peacock bass is live bait. Richard caught 15 nice peacock bass weighing up to 3.5 pounds. He also caught several quality largemouth bass. Conditions were overcast for most of the day but that did not stop the bass from biting. They were stacked up in one area that produced a majority of the fish. Peacock bass is moving on and off beds making for a good time to go catch them.
Captain Miley is looking forward to fishing with Richard again in the near future!
It was not long after this fishing trip that Captain Robert Miley was back on the water. Long-time repeat clients, Sandy and his golfing buddy Jay explored Lake Ida as well. This is one of their favorite lakes as it is close to their vacation residence. The afternoon bite was strong and the big bass was out to play.
Windy conditions can make the bite very difficult but you just have to find the areas that are more protected. Sandy and Jay caught over 10 peacock bass on their quick trip out. All the bass caught were between 3-5 pounds.
Most of the peacock bass were spawning making for a fun day on the water. They were all light up and beautiful.
Captain Miley is looking forward to their next adventure on the water soon!
