In February of 2010, Bill Gassmann fishing with Captain Peacock caught a 28 lb monster Peacock that broke the long standing IGFA All Tackle World Record? Each day of the trip you will have the opportunity to catch 3 species of Peacock Bass with an average of 30 fish per day per boat, including both Royal (barred) and Speckled (Paca) Peacock Bass weighing 25+ pounds and the smaller Butterfly species weighing upwards of 12 lbs. All Tackle World Record Peacock Bass have come from the main channel of the Rio Negro River or within a few miles up its black water tributaries. This is where Captain Peacock fishes and where you have the opportunity to hook up with trophies. These fish are most commonly caught using bait casting and spinning equipment, but fly fishing is quickly becoming the thing. The Rio Negro system supports 2500 different species of fish including Catfish weighing upwards of 300 lbs., Pirarucu weighing 500 lbs. and more, 3 Piranha species, Arowana, and Pacu. You will fish from 17 ½ ft. Tracker Pro Team 175 TXW bass boats (brand new in 2013).
