How To Fish: Peacocks, like most other still-water gamefish, orient to structure that provides a good ambush point. If you're fishing the canals, target the corners where two canals come together, eddys behind any protruding structure, or the backs of coves. Any submerged cover, from natural grass to a sunken lawn chair, will hold fish. On the lakes, submerged rock points, overhanging banks, and sand flats adjacent to deep water are prime holding areas. Gonzalez uses a topwater as a search bait. Once he gets one strike to fire up the school, he'll pitch flies, jerkbaits, or live shiners to catch as many as possible.
