New 2013 Tracker Bass Boat Arrive in Manaus

Our new 175 TXR Tracker Bass Boats cleared customs in Manaus, Brazil today and should be integrated into Captain Peacock’s fishing operations by the end of next week.  These 2013 model Trackers are 17’7” in length and over 80” wide at the beam equipped with 4 stroke Mercury outboards & heavy duty trolling motors.  These fully carpeted aluminum hulled bass boats will give Captain Peacock the most modern and comfortable fishing platforms in the Amazon’s Peacock Bass fishing scene.  They provide huge carpeted casting platforms front and back with virtually unlimited fishing rod and dry storage space. 

Johnnie Morris, founder of Bass Pro Shops and Tracker Marine, fished with us in February of 2012 and at that time suggest that his new 175 TXR Tracker bass boats would be a great fit with the upscale operations of Captain Peacock.   Leonardo Leao, the President of Captain Peacock traveled to Springfield, MO in July to meet with Johnny Morris and a deal was struck which enabled us to partner with Tracker Marine to get the new Trackers to Brazil.  Captain Peacock has partnered with some of the finest manufactures and service providers in the industry including Temple Fork Outfitters, Shimano, Tracker Marine, Bass Pro Shops, Global Rescue as well as American & Copa Airlines to provide our clients with the finest equipment and services available in the world today for Peacock Bass fishermen the world over.
