I had several close calls to bust the coveted 20 pounds mark throughout the week along with everyone else who did bust 20 pounds but I missed the peacock bass when it mattered landing the earlier part 1 18-pounder as my biggest but I did manage several more over 10 pounds including this very colorful 13 1/2 pounder that hit right after I missed one 3 times that was definitely over 20 pounds -a real Rio Negro river-monster but this 13 1/2 pounder still dumped out of a clump of foam along the side of an island like a dropped cement block onto my big topwater woodchopper – so a memorable peacock bass for me.

After this peacock bass unloaded on my topwater chopper I had to take a 20 minute break from fishing to slow down my beating heart! That’s a good kind of fishing problem to have I can tell you for sure!
