The Peacock Bass is pound for pound one of the most epic fighters in water of any kind.
Although it’s a freshwater fish…
It fights like a saltwater game fish.
A native of South America, the Peacock Bass is the largest member of the cichlid fishes and thanks to its tenacious temperament has been stocked in waters around the world.
The current world record Peacock Bass weighs an astounding 29 pounds.
The one we’re about to show you?
Not so much.
For a Peacock Bass it’s pretty small.
We think it’s worth a look.
Nice catch, huh?
