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!

Clients Are Saying...

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.

Record-sized Peacock Bass

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.

Exotic Fishing Adventures

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.
