Delray Beach Peacocks
In this episode of Ultimate catch, host Eric Ciocher joins Captain Brett Isackson in Delroy Beach, Florida to fish for big Peacock Bass. It’s winter in South Florida, but the backwater urban canal systems have remained a tropical temperature, which makes them perfect for this exotic species. Originally hailing from the Amazon Basin, Peacock Bass now thrive in the state due to exotic fish owners releasing their pets. Similar to their largemouth cousins, Brett and Eric find great success jigging plastic baits against the structures, and finish on a bumper haul of Bass.
