     One of the "world's greatest fish", the peacock bass, is by nature aggressive, and its personality is downright belligerent. It is a fish so powerful that it can destroy tackle, straighten hooks and tear the hardware right out of hardwood and plastic baits. The fiercest fighting fish in the world will smash and mangle lures, even break them apart, and then give you the battle of your life."  by  Larry Larsen
