Big Peacock Bass

Perhaps the best of them is Wilson Lake, aka Wahiawa Reservoir which holds some very nice peacock bass. You can fish for peacock bass much the same as largemouths, however a little extra patience may be required.

Peacock bass presentations require working the baits a little slower. Use more finesse in presentation and cast to the same spot again and again if you think it holds a peacock.

Learn the lifecycle of a bass

The more you know about the seasonal migration of bass, the more likely you are to be looking in the right area next time you visit Hawaii bass fishing lakes. Bass become active in spring and begin the spawning process in shallow water. As summer arrives they move to deeper, cooler water. In fall they migrate into the shallows again and feed heavily preparing for their move to deeper water to wait out winter. Visit the bass fishing page for more in-depth information about bass activities.
