January 2016

My group of three returned to Brazil in January 2016 for another week of peacock bass fishing with Rod & Gun Resources. We were scheduled to fish northwest of Manaus, but the water levels were very low. Fortunately for us, J.W. Smith changed our destination about a week before we left and sent us to the upper Matupiri River. We had an amazing week of fishing with most fish caught on big top-water High Rollers. In six days of fishing, the three of us caught 596 peacock bass with 65 over eight pounds. Our biggest fish were four at 14 pounds, two at 16 pounds, and one at 18 pounds.
