Peacock Bass is the
translation for the legendary Brazilian TUCUNARE, one of the most
beautiful, strongest and most acrobatic fresh-water fish in the world.
The fishing season for the extraordinary Peacock Bass is from September
to April. The fishing areas are within 250 miles from Manaus, the
capital of the Amazon.
The fishing area is determined by the
season and the water level in the river. You will be going to your
fishing area by house boat, speed boat or plane. The Amazon river is
the largest river in the world, containing 50% of all the soft water
in the world.
The Amazon river is formed
near Manaus by the black "Rio Negro" and the chocolate muddy "Rio
Solimoes." During the dry season, the average temperatures are 80/90† F
and by night 70/80† F. The Rio Negro has absolutely no mosquitoes due to
the acid present in the dark water. You will be fishing every day in a
different area chosen by our experienced guides on one of the 7,000
tributaries of the Amazon, on a powerful boat for 2 anglers and one
experienced guide. The boats are equipped with an electric trolling
You can expect to fish Peacock Bass
from 5 to 20 pounds, the unofficial known world record is close to
30 pounds. It is common that the Peacock Bass breaks 40 to 60 pound
lines. Their electrifying strikes and their acrobatic jumps and
dives amaze any veteran angler and spoil him forever.
Other than the Peacock Bass, there are
various other species, and while fishing you will witness the
grandiosity and vastness of the Amazon. It's impossible to capture
this picture of the Amazon region in words or on a painter's canvas.
It's grandeur is as
natural as life itself. The world's largest hydrographic basin, rain
forest, and genetic bank can all be found in this part of the planet.
Located in the northern part of Brazil (6 hours by plane from Miami),
the Amazon is equivalent to 30% of the United States size. The volume of
the Amazon River is 10 times that of the Mississippi River.
You will leave civilization behind for
an unforgettable experience in the heart of Nature's grandest
