I don't think so pal, you west coast guys have enough fish to catch. Tongue We need more inshore species over here on the mid east coast. Cool

Wow - nice bass you caught there. Usually over here, we hold the rod in our hands - not in our mouths. But, nice going on the catching ! Got any photos of the 10 or 60 pounders ?

I think that Stans's friend Sugita caught those guys. I'm not sure, Stan, could ya clarify? Smile

Those are some killer fish. I've never had a chance to target GT, I hear they are a blast.Cool

Right, I didn't catch them. Suigata caught them. He was on his way to Christmas Island and fished one day with Chris. I wrote and ask him to send some CI pictures of the bonefish and GT.

He said the peacock bass were in shallow water chasing baitfish and he cast his fly about 10 feet in front of them as they moved along the shore. As soon as they saw it they crashed it. I think he was more excited about seeing the strike than catching the fish. LOL

CoolI'll have you note that Munetsugu Sugita caught them using a fly rod. That must have been a thrill.

We only have 422 species on the Whole west coast. 14 of them are off limits to keep and another 17 of them are more than 5 miles off of the coast.

That doesn't leave a whole lot for the shore dudes.Crazy

LOL, you still got more than us. We've got a grand total of like 15 or so species with in bank to 10 miles out. That's it, so, you've got us beat. Smile

So, if there's ever a raffle to import Peacock bass somewhere, I think the SC coast should get them Sly

Na, there's plenty to go around. I'll pay the shipping charges if someone will UPS me a male and female to drop in the river. Cool

CoolCoolCool I was wondering how long it would take for you to jump in on this one.

Catch me if i'm wrong, but that didn't look like a very heavy fly rod combo, so how difficult are we talking to land a large fish like that?

I wouldn't even think of Bucket Biology.

If I knew that I had a pair of Peacock Bass headed this way, I would start making some suitable habitat for them in my back yard.Cool

It is rather difficult to tell the wt of the rod however, the line looks heavier than a 5 or 6. Blew the picture up to see whether or not if its a boo. Can't tell from the pixel distortion. Anyhow I wouldn't mind catching one of those pc's on a swatter myself.Wink
