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! Our January 2010 adventure along the Rio Negro definitely qualifies as an immensely productive giant peacock bass fishing trip showing everything the mighty river has to offer!

We finished our fishing week along the Rio Negro North of Santa Isabel near the waters that have produced world record-sized peacock bass in the past. We were so far up mighty Rio Negro we could just start to see the foothills and ancient volcanoes the rain waters come down from during the rainy season.
