This is a small bass I caught in the lake next to our house, Chamber's Lake.
Another small bass
with a different Spinner Bait.
Here I am in my bass boat in North Carolina in Falls lake.
Dad and I went on a fishing trip to Florida in August of 2005. Here Dad is watching our guide, Brett Isackson, put his boat into a canal behind a supermarket.
Dad with a nice Peacock Bass. That first day we caught 17 Peacocks, and Dad caught nine of 'em.
He caught the biggest ones too.
as Brett looks
where we can best find the biguns.
Nice sized Peacock
fight, and are lots of fun to catch.
Here's Dad, outfishing me, and Brett looking on.
Another nice sized Peacock Bass. This one is a male, you can tell from the lump on his head.
This was a kind of canal cul-de-sac, we only caught one fish in here, but it sure is a pretty view.
This is a chicalid, and they have nasty sharp teeth. The peacock bass is related to these, but doesn't have teeth.
On the second day fishing for Peacocks, Dad and I caught an equal number of fish, I think seven each, but Dad caught all Peacocks.
This is a small largemouth bass I caught at the end of the day..
This is a park we stopped at on our way to our hotel in Clewiston, heading north from Sunrise, FL.
This park was right next to a big bank (not in this picture) that if you climbed it, you could see lake Okeechobee.
Here Dad is, with our guide, Mark Shepard looking on, catching a big largemouth on the last day of our trip. On that day we were fishing in lake Okeechobee.
This is a good sized, around five pounds, largemouth bass I caught on that last day of our fishing trip. I caught nine bass that day, all about this size. We only stayed out a few hours, because hurricane Katrina was coming, it was a bit windy.
