Recently they were barking like crazy at something at the edge of the water. Then I noticed a big splash and baitfish jumping up onto the bank. The dogs were barking at two big peacock bass. The water level has dropped several feet and the baitfish have no grass to hide in. The peacock bass were crusing the shoreline chasing the baitfish and the dogs were following the peacock bass.

I've heard of watdhing for feeding birds to find fish, but barking dogs.

A well placed fly resulted in a smashing strike from a nice 4 pound peacock. We moved along the shore line, but always returned whenever the dogs started barking again.

Aloha,
Stan
