Fishing Report For Jan 29 – Feb 06, 2015

Last week was the best week I’ve had on the Amazon in a long, long time.

And it had nothing to do with the fishing.

Although it was pretty great as well.

No, last week’s great time had everything to do the guests. They were a fantastic bunch. Just full of energy and ready and eager to try everything under the sun.

They were all Dallas Safari Club members and, in fact, bought the trip at the 2014 auction.


Oh. The owner wants me to be sure to mention that this trip sold for over $87,000 and was the highest selling item at the show. That translates to a lot of money going toward hunt conservation.

Can I get back to my report now?

The DSC Hookers. (Top row from left to right) Elyse Puckett, Bob & Celia Scott, Shawn Stephens, Olga Lourens, Cindy Swisher, Brooks Puckett, Tori Nayfa, Lisa Baxter, David Allison, Peggy Rose, Kathy Allison, Sherry Burt (Bottom row) Jeffrey Burt, Diego Lopez, Ian Lourens, Bill Swisher, Abe Nayfa, Robert Baxter, Mark Rose

Like I said, this group (which called themselves the DSC Hookers) was great. In addition to enjoying the run of my 125-foot yacht, getting massages, dancing, drinking fine wines, cocktails, and beer, eating chef prepared meals, taking part in eco-tours, and soaking in all the sites they actually fished.

Brook Puckett’s 18 pound goliath.

They landed close to 1,000 peacock bass and 22 of those were over ten pounds. The biggest was landed by Robert Baxter who pulled in a 21-pound goliath.

Celia Scott’s 12 pounder.

I think Kath Allison summed up the trip best. She said, “We had a great time. Just outstanding. The crew, the guides, everyone did a fantastic job. We all had a wonderful time.”

Of course I knew they’d have a great time.

I know this because I know Amazônia.

I’m Capt Peacock.
