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.
