Peacock Bass Fishing in palm beach

The Florida Peacock Bass was introduced into the South Florida freshwater system in 1984. After 10 years of study, Florida officials introduced both the Butterfly Peacock Bass and Speckled Peacock Bass to the southern region of that state to prey on other non-native species. From the beginning local anglers became obsessed with catching these aggressive and amazing looking fish.
