    Ok guys probably this thread has been made many times, but I have not seen one like the one I’m asking, so I want to know what would the right lure to throw would be in a canal near my house, I have seen many 4 + lb peacock bass, but they are in the middle/ bottom. But every time I throw anything that is not top water it gets snagged full of grass. This canal has a lot of grass in the bottom, and it is not that deep

    Try anything with a weedless set up. Senko weightless Texas rigged or a swimbait on a weedless hook would be good. Not sure if peacocks like senkos but I wouldn’t doubt it

    Anything Texas rig should give you a good chance depending on the weed type spinner baits do come through weeds fairly well also. If you are more limited to a top water try a Berkeley choppo.

    I have been stumped too in the same situation with peacock bass. A weedless bucktail or a white/chartreuse ned rig worked for me, but you need to be very patient as you will get a lot of follows and short strikes before they commit.

    Weightless worm or a Carolina rig.
