‘Gator’ Jim starts out your ordinary Amazon peacock bass angler but becomes Gator Jim when he snags a full-grown Spectacled Caiman that isn’t the baby he thought might make cute pictures but a 7 to 8 foot adult monster! A 30 minute battle ensues ending in pandemonium!
Tony P videos Terri catching a small peacock bass on a big topwater doing the woodchopper rip early in the morning. Note the guide calls the fish out before it even hits the plug somehow spotting it in the dark brown-black waters of the Rio Negro even though he is sitting down in the boat!
