So what do peacocks, clowns, and fishing have in common?

Guest Profile

Captain Kevin Cannon from Peacock Bass Adventures grew up in Delaware, but decided it was a fisherman’s life he wanted to lead. So he headed south, all the way to Islamorada in the Florida Keys. It was there that he became an offshore fishing captain and learned to catch all of the big salty species. But after relocating to West Palm Beach, Florida, another fish caught his eye – peacock bass. Captain Kevin traded in the sportfisher for a bay boat, and now guides clients on Florida peacock bass fishing adventures. In this episode, he tells us all about his unique fishery and the exotic species he catches. Plus, he shares some epic fishing adventures that will make you want to head south to play with the peacocks!
