Oscars are stout and fun, I'd go if the Peacocks were not there, for the aquarium fish

Looks like you had good weather. 
There are some stud peacocks down there.

Great Job,

Nice report. Iíve never caught a peacock. My grandson caught a bowfin a couple of weeks ago near Lake George. He was pretty excited as it put up a lot more fight than the largemouth he caught earlier.
