They look like a big yellow perch!

Never have but they are high on the list of fish I'd like to catch! If I go after them I want to go to the Amazon though and fish for the really big ones along with all the other cool fish that there are down there.

I just made a trip to Bass Pro Shops in Fort Lauderdale yesterday. I went down there to get a new reel and to fish for Peacock Bass. It was my first time fishing for them,although I seen a few and had a few chase my lures and one grab my popper I didnt catch one. I talked to a few locals and posted a topic in the Southeast fishing parts of these forums to try and find where/how to catch them. I was told fast moving lures or topwater and they hit most during the middle of the day when it is hottest. I plan on going again soon to catch one this time.

the farthest North Ive gotten one, was in Lake Osbourne in the Lake Worth area, and was really shocked to get it that far up. Really Southern Broward County and down are the real go to place if your looking for them specifically, but you can find them in patches here and there between down there and Palm Beach County. I don't know about any farther North than that.

we used to have a ton of them in palm beach county but a cold winter came and killed them off...and thats exactly what was supposed to happen so if you see them anywhere near northern florida dont expect them to last long...ive seen a few lately in west palm beach but not many...i love in royal palm beach and we used to have tons of them in the canals near me before that winter 

 

the reason the fwc chose peacocks was because they cant handle the cold so they wont get out of hand and make it very far up florida without being killed off in the winter

Before the freeze a few years ago I was catching almost as many peas as LMB behind my home in Delray, as well as many other Palm Beach county locations.  I do know they still catch them in Lake Ida and Lake Osborn and I have caught a few in the nearby canals of Lake Ida, the pic I posted was caught there within the last year.

 

In South America they have 4 or 5 different strains that we don't have here and they get much bigger down there, RedlineRobert has been there and caught some awesome ones.  I have a couple buddys down here that are strictly saltwater fly fisherman that have been in the Amazon fly fishing for them, they can't rave enough about them, a 20# woodknocker on a fly rod is pretty cool.
