This group is the first to utilize Captain Peacock’s new 125’ yacht, which will be in service for our anglers from the middle of January thru the 3rd week of February due to increased demand for our trips. This beautiful new yacht features 10 private staterooms with side by side beds, private bathrooms & showers as well as independent air-conditioning units in each stateroom. Captain Peacock has added two additional chefs to work with our long term Chef Ronaldo on this luxury yacht to continue to provide the finest food service available in the Amazon. Combined with our fleet of new American made 2013 Tracker bass boats and the great service and guides Captain Peacock has long been known for, makes the upscale Peacock Bass fishing trips Captain Peacock offers the finest available in the world today!

Water levels on the upper Rio Negro have been falling quickly since the first of the year. The fishing grounds upriver from Barcelos have experienced very little rain in the last week and water levels continue to drop which will concentrate fish which should enhance fishing success.
