Capt. Peacock Fishing Report For Oct. 3 – 9, 2014

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.

Capt. Peacock Reviews Anaconda

We have one day between expeditions.

That’s one day with no guests. Which leaves us roughly 24 hours to have the crew scour all 124 feet of my luxurious yacht, lay on supplies, and get everything perfect for the next batch of guests. Once all their tasks are completed, the crew likes to use their one “free from guests” night to unwind. Sometimes they go ashore in Barcelos. Other times they just hang out on the boat. Such was the case last week when the crew asked if we could all watch the 1997 movie Anaconda on the top deck. (more…)
