The weather finally turned hot and the water temperature is hitting 81 degrees in the afternoon. The peacock bass are starting to spawn. The bad news is the water has turned green. I guess it's an algae bloom. Water visibility is about 6 inches in most places, some times a foot when the sun is bright. It's really hard to spot the fish.

The smaller peacock bass in the 1 to 2 pound range have been fairly active. We're starting to see some of the bigger Tukes just cruising around. It's tough to cast to a 7 or 8 pound fish and have them totally ignore your offering. Sometimes they will turn to look, then turn away. Not aggressive at all. Drives you crazy. Even the Red Devils are not that aggressive.

But the fishing is getting better every day. LOL

Take Care,
Stan
