Like the Peacock Bass, Clown Knife Fish can be caught only two places on earth. In this case those locations are Southeast Asia and South Florida. Nobody can prove how they got here, but we are certain they were released from the aquarium trade when they outgrew their aquariums. They proliferated!
They fight like Tarpon, with great leaps, jumps and shakes. They bite aggressively and will strike plugs! We enjoy catching every single one! They are best in the summer and fall, but there is a chance one can be caught any day of the year.
