Pleasure is mine being your friend, s Forida is subtropical, everything environmentally is huge, fish,bugs, plants, that was about 5.5-6 lbs good size tilapa ..not impressive game fish, don't fight much, just a heavy fish, Peacocks a whole different ball game, amazing aggressive fish, they take everything personally, on a fly rod nothing better, deerhair bugs and poppers, sliders, divers they viciously attack em all ... If you ever get down to Florida look me up .i shall take you out ...
I'm from west palm beach... Live right on the northern tip of where Peacocks habitat ..
All peacock bass fishing is south of here ...if you haven't tried Peacocks you missing a treat,
They are the fightingest fish I've ever seen ..and on a fly rod you cannot beat the sport ..
