Brazil / Amazon Peacock Bass Fishing

The Amazon peacock bass is renowned for its amazing fighting strength and beautiful exotic coloring. Their topwater explosion-strikes have become legendary in the angling community and thousands of fishermen travel each year to challenge this exciting gamefish.

     Our outfitter in Brazil has long been a leader in fishing for trophy peacock bass in Brazil using River Plate Anglers’ mobile Cabin barge concept. Over the years, our anglers have landed hundreds of trophy fish over 20 pounds!

     Our outfitter whisks fishermen via state-of-the-art Cessna Caravan aircraft directly from the Manaus, Brazil airport to pristine fishing locations far (often hundreds of miles) from the overfished melee of competing lodges and houseboats — and lands right at their camp or yacht accommodations.

     The"Cabin Barge" program is a breakthrough in placing comfortable, air-conditioned accommodations in previously inaccessible locations. Each set of barges draws only about four rs. Our anglers routinely hook 40-50-60 and more fish each day! The fish are in the 4 to 12 pound range and viciously hit topwater lures, spoons, and jigs, and also really attack flies. The real plus in Bolivia is the great variety of other game fish – acrobatic payara, corvina, inches of water, which enables us to travel virtually anywhere, avoiding natural barriers such as waterfalls and too-shallow river mouths—places where no other outfitter can go!

     This access to unfished waters allows us to access the very best trophy peacock bass fishing offered anywhere.
