Gents,
I just wanted to share with all of you a few pictures which i took on Sunday.While i was fighting the Peacock Bass on my Float and HK hook rig,at the corner
of my left eye i saw a large shadow in the water coming towards the PB.The next minute there was a very large splash and i saw a Big Bad Toman biting on the PB.
The rest is History.

Did the toman snap the Peacock Bass right off or was there a short fight with it? Tomans must hate Peacock bass for sniping off their youngs and take every chance to get back at them. :p Interesting encounter.

When the Toman bit the PB,it was a clean bite.The fight ended right there.
