Mid-Week Fishing Report: January 26-28, 2013

This week water levels at the Xeruini are on the low side and it is yielding excellent fishing results. This weekend the group at Terra Preta (Xeruini) landed 690 peacocks, meanwhile we have been informed by the camp host that the group at Lagoa (Xeruini) is concentrating in the sizes using bigger lures, thus obtaining 52 peacocks above 8 lbs in 2 ½ days.

The Caju area at the Jufaris water level is on the low side but on the Cacobí area is perfect, a bit below the jungle level. No rain this weekend. The biggest peacock for this weekend was 18 lbs.

The Itapara river Fly-in Floating cabins are located in mid-level waters that have descended 2,5 inches last weekend, we are expecting no significant rain and water levels should keep improving.  Last week´s group finished the week with a 1023 peacock count.

Last week we hosted 38 sport fishermen in our 5 camps. This was an amazing week. Our guests landed a grand total of 8172 peacock bass with excellent weather conditions. The Jufaris yielded the weekly 24lbs record. The fishing boat manned by Larry Henley and his partner Danny passed the 200 daily mark last Thursday at the Xeruini, pls. check his testimonial below.

Larry Henley fished the Xeruini last week and wrote:

I had an awesome time and will surely be coming back. The staff made every effort to please us and was second to none. I was very pleased with our guide and the host. Doka and John went out of their way to make sure we had a good time. I have been on many fishing trips overseas. This one by far is the most memorable! Please thank everyone for me again and let John and Doka know that I will never forget this trip. I'm hopeful that I can return for another try at a 20lb plus in a couple of years.

Mid-Week Fishing Report: January 19-21, 2013

Mid-Week Fishing Report: January 19-21, 2013

It is important that all readers of our partial Fishing Reports issued on Tuesdays are aware that this information shows the partial results of two and a half days of fishing peacocks in our private fisheries. These results reflect in some measure the fishing conditions in the fishery and we also include the precipitation forecast trying to present a view of the evolution of the water levels. Naturally readers must be aware that an equal, or more important factor in obtaining quoted results depend on the sport fishermen themselves, on their skills, on the gear they use, on their commitment, on their age, on their health, even on how long they stop to lunch and nap. All this trying to explain why on the same river, only a few miles apart, two groups might present so dissimilar results. Also consider that this report does not include any other species caught and there are still other unmentioned secondary factors that may influence this report.

Last week at the Xeruini one group caught 1478 peacocks, and this week the new group in the same Fly-in Floating Cabins started the tally (2 1/2 days) with 450 peacocks. The other group of guests fishing at the upper Xeruini, ended last week with 1753 peacocks, but actually the new group started this week with 884 peacocks. Water levels are good and descending at the headwaters.

The upper Jufaris groups closed last week with a 912 tally, and opened this week with 746 peacocks, both groups having obtained 21 lbs trophies. Our other camp at the mid Jufaris closed last week with a similar 960 tally and 3 trophies above 20lbs, and the group presently fishing there have landed 290 peacocks, they have lost a significant number of hits according to our information. They have also suffered some heavy rain during the last weekend.

Upper Itapara Fly-in Floating cabins had a promising start this week with 386 peacock bass tally (2 1/2 days). They experienced some rain this weekend but water levels descended 2 inches since it stopped, though they are a bit high in certain parts still.
