Capt. Peacock Fishing Report For Oct. 10 – 16, 2014

It’s a shame to put aside this lit Cuban in order to bring you this week’s fishing report, but the details of such are so impressive that the best of Havana can wait.

And besides, my doctor says I need to scale back a bit on the cigars. He apparently thinks five a day is maybe three cigars too many.

I’m thinking of getting another doctor.

Regardless, last week our 23 guests caught an astounding 1,543 peacock bass. Of these 1,494 weighed less than 10 pounds while 42 went over 10. This over 10 group saw some true monsters with 7 fish going over the 20 pound mark (see the complete breakdown below) and one bad boy tipped the scales – and the guide holding the scale – at 24 pounds.

Actually, that’s almost as much as that guide weighed.

It’s true. My guides are small.

Of course this batch of 23 guests did more than fish down here in the Amazon.

They drank, ate, sang, danced, got massages, smoked cigars, told fish tales, and all around just had a great time while staying aboard my 124-foot yacht.

They also enjoyed several shore lunches with freshly grilled bass and partook of a evening banquet on virgin white sand island (above).

My second in command and all around decent guy Leonardo got some great aerial pictures of a lot of this week’s activities with his new flying drone thing. I don’t understand that thing but he seems to enjoy flying it around taking video and whatnot. I liked it better when he flew it into the river the week before though. That was pretty damn funny.

In short, the fishing and the fun are in full swing so put your excuses aside and get on down here as the season – and the fun – will only improve.

I know this because I know Amazônia.

I’m Capt Peacock.
