Peacock Bass Fishing in BrazilTrip Details

Acrobatic brawlers on a line, peacock bass snap 30-lb. monofilament like thread, straighten saltwater hooks, mangle lures and send rods home in more pieces than you came with. They are almost exclusively diurnal and aren't the least bit sun-shy, hitting most lures at the surface with explosive force. Like largemouth bass, peacocks often prefer “structure” of some sort. Rocks, fallen logs, points and sand bars are hiding places for baitfish, so this is where the peacocks will usually be lurking. Of course, you should always heed the guide’s recommendations on where to cast. This is truly a bass fishing Trip of a Lifetime!

Standard Peacock Bass Trip Itinerary: 

Day 1 - Plan your home location flights to arrive at Miami airport with plenty of time for check-in for your next flight.  Departure from Miami to Manaus. Arrive in Manaus, after you have cleared customs, a representative will take you to your overnight at a five star hotel.

 

Day 2 - Starting at 6.30 am, departures to one of the six Fly-In Floating Cabins or to the Black Water Explorer houseboat, on charter flight + Express Boat.  Time allowing, fish for a few hours in the afternoon.

 

Day 3 - Day 8 - Six full fishing days. Breakfast is served at 7:00 a.m. and your guide will be ready to leave by 7:30 a.m. If staying on a Floating Cabin, we suggest you return to camp for lunch and a “siesta” since you could be as close as 5-15 minutes away. If staying at the Black Water Explorer in the Unini or Indian Reserves (limited entries), we suggest you also return for lunch and a "siesta" since the low fishing pressure lagoons are next to the deep navigable waterways where the yacht will be anchored. If staying at the Black Water Explorer at locations other than the Unini/Indian Reserves, we suggest you have a picnic lunch in the fishing area since the distance is substantial. All yachts must stop where low water prevents passage, so the fishing areas are generally 1 to 2 hours away.

 

Day 9 - Time allowing, fish a few hours in the morning. Depart from Floating Cabins or Black Water Explorer on floatplane and / or combination of charter flight + express boats to Manaus. Afternoon / night departure back to the U.S.
