Brazil peacock bass fishingYour quarry is the awesome peacock bass, not only one of the most beautiful of all freshwater fish, but also one of the strongest and most acrobatic in the world. You should expect to do battle with fish in the 10-20 pound class and possibly a few much larger!
Ron Speed Jr’s Adventures offers you the best rivers in South America for giant trophy peacock bass. The rivers we fish produce more peacock bass in excess of 20 lbs. than any other rivers in South America. Natives of this region frequently report catching monster peacocks in excess of 14 kilos (30 lbs.) on hand lines, and we certainly believe them. One of the rivers we fish, the mighty Rio Negro, is home to the IGFA all tackle record (27.5 lbs.) caught in 1994. The rivers we fish are all “black water”, which is the color of dark tea, caused by tannic acids. Due to the acid content, mosquitos are unable to breed, thus eliminating these feisty pests.
The fishing experience of a lifetime is how most visiting anglers describe their peacock bass fishing trip to the Amazon with Ron Speed Jr’s Adventures aboard their new vessel the Otter.
Visiting anglers have always had the privilege of fishing from fully equipped bass boats, boarded from a moving houseboat, but now they return to the style and luxury of a floating hotel. The Otter is designed for all types of river conditions, including the low water level times. Where water levels once plagued traveling fishing boats, it is no longer a threat to the Otter, which has gained a quick reputation of being able to fish on the world’s second longest river and her tributaries at any time of the year.
Since we were the pioneers of houseboat Peacock bass fishing in the Amazon our guides have years of experience. Most have been with us since the first trip. Guides like Amarol, Harold, Leno, Samuel, Adalberto, Joe and Aligator have become famous guides over the years.
For years anglers venturing to the Amazon have continually threatened the world Peacock bass record of 27.5 lbs. Most groups fishing the Amazon aboard the Otter will have opportunities to catch several fish over 20 lbs. and some that will even challenge that record. This is made possible by utilizing the Otter’s flexibility in reaching the big fish producing areas of the different rivers. While some camps are land-locked and some boats lack both the capacity and design to reach these areas, not so with the Otter and her crew and guides. Aboard the Otter, no longer do anglers fear a week of limited fish catching, as the Otter mobility has all but made this a distant memory.
