Peacock Bass aren't the only species available to catch in the Amazon Jungle but once you've had your first peacock you'll understand why they are the primary target of our Amazon Fishing Adventures!
When we go, we stay in air-conditioned comfort on the Amazon Otter, the finest floating hotel along the Amazon River. The Otter features the best staff, service and food to enhance your Amazon Fishing Adventure!
What can we say about the Woodchopper! It is by far the most exciting fishing technique to catch a big peacock bass on but it takes some practice and effort to get the right ripping sound and movement. It's worth it!
You know it’s a successful trophy peacock bass fishing trip when you have to post 3 articles covering some of the biggest peacock bass caught during the trip!
More big peacock bass fishing pictures from our amazing January 2010 trophy fishing trip to the Rio Negro, Brazil deep in the Amazon Jungle!
The Rio Negro was pretty low with lots of visible giant sandbars during out January 2010 trip to the mighty Brazilian Amazon Jungle river! We were on the hunt for the giant Speckled Peacock Bass that call the Negro home!
Our favorite peacock bass fishing destination is the mighty Rio Negro in Brazil! The Rio Negro (Black River) is the major N-S tributary that merges with the Rio Solimoes in Manaus to become the even mightier Amazon River
Sometimes fishing the Amazon is open water and sometimes you have to go right into the jungle after the fish! During our 2012 trip unseasonable rains upriver had the Rio Negro running high and up into the jungle!

As with my business you only hear from two types of customers, ones that had a poor experience and ones that had a fantastic one. This one is the latter. This was my first trip to Brazil and I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed it. The Guides all worked to put us on fish, and one in particular Gee, worked with my fishing partner and I Wednesday morning and taught us the correct technique to rip the baits. The fish I caught on Wednesday with Gee are 18lbs around 8:00am, 22 lbs around 9:00am and 25 lbs at 3:00pm.
The Rio Negro is the main north tributary to the Amazon River. It is one of the primary tributaries fished by Ron Speed Jr's Adventures and the Otter. The IGFA all tackle world record Peacock Bass was caught from the Rio Negro and weighed 28 pounds.
Speckled Peacock Bass are usually the primary target of anglers fishing the Amazon River but plenty of other fish are available to keep you busy including the toothy Piranha, aggressive Wolf Fish, catfish and Arapaima to name just a few.
The Otter we stay on when fishing the Amazon is a fine floating hotel. Suites and the dining area are air-conditioned for your comfort. We never run out of great food and drink with a mix of local and expected favorites to fill you up!
