Start fishing. The crew of 17 members including the executive Chef, fishing guides, boat housekeepers, skippers, among others, will make sure that on each and every day of your Rio Negro River fishing trip you will have the opportunity to experience this unique place on earth called the Amazon. Beyond the fishing, the focus is to introduce you to the beauties and wonders of the Amazon. If desired, the guides can take you on amazing eco adventures around the fishing grounds such as visiting Indian villages and viewing flora and fauna of the rainforest. It will be an opportunity to make the trip a memorable one in your life.
Peacock Bass Fishing Season
From September through March (6 and ½ months) We typically fish in the Upper Rio Negro watershed, 1200 - 1400 miles from the ocean, from September through March following the main river and its tributaries between Barcelos and Santa Isabel. With the trips originating in Manaus, Brazil, it requires only a charter flight and a short trip on the yacht to set you in remote spots and secret lagoons. You will experience fishing for trophy peacocks in one of the most awe inspiring locations in the world, the Amazon.
Experience the Amazon Peacock Bass
The Mighty Peacock
This colorful hard fighting fish, often weighing 25 lbs or better, is an aggressive feeder that will come out of 20 feet of water to smash huge, noisy top water lures with a vengeance. Occasionally they will knock a big 7” Wood Chopper top water lure 5 to 6 feet in the air on a missed strike. Although a Peacock Bass feeds and fishes like a Largemouth Bass, the Peacocks are actually a member of the aggressive Cichlid family of South American fishes and not a member of the same family as the Large Mouth Bass. Visualize a 25 lbs Smallmouth Bass, having a bad hair day, and you will get an idea of what a Peacock Bass’ temperament and fighting ability are all about! Peacock Bass will readily strike jerk baits, spoons, jigs and flies, but that explosive top water strike on a big Woodchopper or Rip Roller is what people come to Brazil’s Amazon to experience.
