It’s well known that the Rio Negro in Brazil produces the biggest Speckled Peacock Bass having produced the last two world records. We’ve traveled there twice with Ron Speed Jr’s Adventures to tackle these bruisers!

Here is just an article to feature some of the big Peacock Bass we’ve already caught from the Rio Negro and tributaries! These were caught during a trip in late February, early March in 2012 during an unexpected high water period when the water in the Amazon was up 9 to 10 feet above where it has been on other trips to the mighty river causing flooding back into the jungle!
