Yes, Chip. That’s very nice….No…I really…I really mean it. The way you wrapped that…what is that? A lime? Yeah. The way you wrapped that lime around the glass is just awesome…Oh a caipirinha. Good. Well it’s the prettiest caipirinha I’ve ever seen. Leave it and I’ll drink it after I write up this week’s fishing report. Ok. Thanks. Sorry. (more…)
Behold my big plate of fried peacock bass!
Unfortunately, my cook Saul won’t let me tear into my eighth favorite snack or get me another cold beer until I finish this week’s fishing report.
“You told me not to let you e’start to drink until it was done.”
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. (more…)
Sitting in the upper bar area of my 125 foot yacht having a refreshing caipirinha, I am taken aback by this week’s fishing numbers. It’s the first week of the season down here in the Amazon and the fish are biting like no one’s business. It’s been a blast to say the least.
Between Oct. 3 – 9, 2014 clients caught…
1,272 peacock bass under 10 pounds
23 10 pounders
5 11 pounders
6 12 pounders
5 13 pounders
5 14 pounders
4 15 pounders
5 16 pounders
3 17 pounders
2 18 ponders
1 19 pounder
3 20 pounders
1 22 pounder
and 1 23 pound behemoth
And these were all peacock bass, mind you.
Clients caught tons of other species as well.
Dallas Safari Club Member Joel O’Shoney landed more than 10 barracuda in a one-hour period. Not sure why Joel wanted to target those nasty buggers but he seemed to have a hell’uva time doing so, so to each his own I guess.
The fishing will only improve as the season continues.
I know this because I know Amazônia.
