FR: July 15-22, 2023: Week 4

Hot and Peppy!

1,411 Peacocks by 8 anglers

On our 4th week on the Marmelos, first time guest Silver and his son got hands on a couple of 16 pounders. A total of 8 anglers managed to boat 1,411 Peacocks in these clear pristine waters. We kept moving our River Train downstream, getting our guests closer to the hotspots. Fishing shallow sand bars was not the way to go, Peacocks were lurking in deeper waters in look for a colder environment. Choppers and Perversas were the most productive lures.

Weather: Weather is stable just like the previous weeks. No rains, no clouds; only clear skies. Water level keeps going down and is now on the sweet spot for the middle part of the river. Our South East Zone forecasts show no signs of rainstorms ahead. We expect water levels to decrease.

Groups: 1

Anglers: 8

Peacock Bass Count: 1411*

Biggest: 16lbs

Over 10lbs: 45

*Other less aggressive tropical species were left out of the fishing tally.
