Santa must have had me on the "nice" list. Caught more of these guys over 3 days than you could imagine.

Really remarkable, almost every peacock was a lunker. Sight casting in 6'+ clarity. Live shiners and x-raps (white).

Oh, I'm jealous, I need to head south and try that. Those are beautiful fish. I like my plastic Solo a lot but the glass ones are truly something to look at. I really like the sea deck on yours.
