Planning a Peacock Bass Fishing Trip

Have you ever dreamed of traveling to a tropical country? Do you love to fish? Then start planning a trip to the Amazon to catch peacock bass. Sure, peacock bass can be caught off the coast of Florida, but the real adventure is in the jungles of South America. There are many companies that offer peacock bass fishing charters, so the only work you have to do is choose which charter you would like to take!

If you are up for a challenge and a real prize, the peacock bass is the fish you want to catch. This bass is a fighter, so be prepared for a battle. If you win, you will have a great prize: a beautiful fish to photograph or to keep and mount on your wall. The peacock bass, which comes in varieties such as butterfly, black barred, royal peacock, and speckled, grows to be a huge fish, with the world record catch weighing in at twenty-seven pounds!

When fishing in the Amazon, you will be amazed at all the wildlife you will see around you. The country is beautiful, but wild, so be sure to think of your safety at all times. Listen to any advice your guide gives you, and don’t risk injuring yourself just to catch a fish or get a photograph.

Speaking of photographs, don’t forget to bring your camera and lots of film; bring a video camera if you have one, too. If you come well prepared, you will be sure to have lots of photos and video to show your friends and family once you are back home. This will be the trip of a lifetime and you don’t want to forget any details.

In case you are thinking, “What if I go all that way and don’t catch anything?” peacock bass are known to be territorial. This makes it easy for fishermen and guides, because once a good fishing spot is found, you can pretty much guarantee that there will always be peacock bass in that spot.
