    You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.

    Nice fish. What kind is it? We don't have any of those here in NY. Looks like a bass with some extra stripes and spot at the tail.

    Peacock Bass. Fun fighters. They only do well in warm waters. If I am not mistaken they come from South America where you can find some monsters.

    Are those bass are indigenous to florida? I thought they were a south america fish. I hope we're not messing up the eco-system with those puppies...

    Wow! That's one nasty looking monster...but that's a great looking fish!

    Sounds like a great backyard hobby.

    Choo & Ret: All of youse are a bunch of comedians!

    I found this an the Florida Fish and Wildlife site:

    The butterfly peacock is the only reproducing exotic fish that was legally introduced, and this fish was released only after extensive research indicated it would be a beneficial addition. The objectives for introducing this fish were to convert an over-abundance of exotic forage fishes, especially the spotted tilapia, into a highly desirable urban sportfishery. The introduction of the butterfly peacock in 1984 has been extremely successful in that it has had no known detrimental effects, and it has generated millions of hours of fishing pleasure for thousands of anglers who spend more than $8 million a year to catch this fish
    and some more info here:
    Florida's Peacock Bass Fisheries

    HogDaddy, It is a man made lake. It looks like it was a quarry sometime in the past. This is a view from my back porch.

    If you have a problem with sleepwalking I wouldn't recommend a house where you could walk out the back door and drowned ,otherwise you can watch a fishing show while you got a pole in the water
