Cichla Temensis Fishing in the Philippines. Caught my 1st Peacock of the Day after more than 6 mos since we last caught one. Now their size had increased, this one weighed 11 lbs on the boga grip from the previous 8-9pounders.
Had to carefully maneuver the fish away from the lilly pads and sunken tree trunk because i already lost a bigger one earlier when it swam around these structures. (video was shot halfway of the fight since my friend was on the other end when i yelled for assistance)
