The Peacock Bass
Learn About This Sportfish
In actuality, the peacock bass is not a member of the bass family at all. It is just one of some 1,600 plus members of family of fish called cichlids.
There are some striking similarities to the largemouth bass, such as basic body contour, cavernous mouth, ravenous appetite and a strong propensity to attack prey and fishing lures with a ferocity that is more reminiscent of much larger fish.
While largemouth bass anglers revel at the fierce topwater strike, there is no comparison when it comes to the assault that peacock bass makes on a lure, even the small size ones! One striking difference, immediately apparent is that the peacock bass is much more vividly colored in varying shades of green, blue, orange and gold.
