Remarkable 2.247 landed peacock bass was the final count for last week´s 9 angler group fishing at our private fishery at the Matupiri river, this number includes 17 trophies ranging from 21lbs to 17lbs. This weekend received a new group of 6 anglers that had a rainy start, forecasts show more rain episodes for the rest of the week.
The Jufaris fishery is a live demonstration of how a thorough and comprehensive sustainability policy in private waters, significantly increases the trophy ratio. Last week´s anglers landed the following weights: one 23 lbs, four 21 lbs, two 18lbs and one 17lbs, which is consistent with the past weeks as well as the 2.747 final fish-count for peacock bass.
Reported best performing lures this week are: yuzuri, perversa and jigs.
This is the last week in December that we are operating, next two weeks will be used to perform the programmed mid-season maintenance of our equipment and holiday recess of our operational staff.
