Becky and I went to Puerto Rico for our 16 year anniversary. :shock:
We do this every year, and we leave the kids with my mother-in-law for 3 days. The beauty of going to Puerto Rico is that the flight is direct from Boston (3.5 hours), no passport is needed, and there are no additional "cellular service" charges. We cash in our airline miles and basically this is a very cheap weekend getaway. We like to do at least one excursion while there. Last time we took a guided trip to the rain forest. This time we decided to do some fishing. It came down to Tarpon or Peacock bass, and after speaking to Captain Paco of peacock bass and tarpon tours we decided to go after peacocks. Next time we will hunt tarpon. Captain Paco was awesome and put us on the fish right away. We caught Peacocks, Tiger bass, catfish, and red devils! Becky caught the biggest peacock (of course :evil: ) that went at least 4 pounds if not more. What an awesome day and trip.

Congrats on 16 years!

How much fight do the peacocks put up? On tv shows it always looks awesome. By the way your beard game is on point! =D>

The peacocks fight more like smallmouth bass and they try to "run" a little more before they try to spit the bait/hook. In my opinion the order of fight would go Peacock, smallmouth, largemouth.

The beard has now grown on everyone and they are used to it. If I was to shave it I would get the weird looks. :LOL2:

Nice to see you around the forum again also! Thanks! :D

Guess I thought I only had two fish left to catch..a Snook and a Sail. I might have to add a Peacock bass to the bucket list.

Great job ...to your wife!... Ha Ha

Sounds like a wonderful plan that you have to save money on your wedding anniversaries. Wait until you get to #25, #40, #50 and #55. THEY will cost you much more!

Peas are a hoot to catch, and I now go for them exclusively with 6-8 lb test, thin rods and small reels.

When they get 4-5 pounds I'd rather catch 10 of them in a day than 1 bass which as it has happened was more often than not, but peas will bite all day.

I'm thinking that's Waayyy too far north for them, but there's always the rare micro climate that someone could have illegally stocked.

I understand that one can catch them around Miami in the canals. Are there any Floridians ( or Winter Floridians) that can tell us more?

I might be seduced into a trip down that way.

Going back to the start of this thread, I got to say if I suggested to my wife that we spend our next anniversary on a fishing trip, I might be afraid to sleep at night. :LOL2:
