Looking for some great topwater action in a river system which has never been fished before? Well, Steve Yatomi of has found the spot in Suriname. The river system provides non-stop topwater action for a tooth critter called a wolf fish. These guys average around 15lbs and described by Yatomi as "jungle pit bull fish".

Numerous other species are also available such as peacock bass, monster piranha to 10lbs, and giant redtail catfish which can get well over 100lbs.

Yatomi was able to observe a variety of wildlife such as Tapirs, Giant River Otters,Amazon deer, Numerous macaws and other bird species. He also was able to see a few anaconda's and several orange non venomous snakes plus a few blue poison dart frogs.

Steve is hosting trips in Sept/Oct 2010 at this location and another for monster Lau Lau cats up to 150kg. Both trips are for 6 days of fishing, meals, charter flights, ground transfers and 2 nights lodging in Paramaribo. Cost in inexpensive for a trip such as this for $3200 and limited to 6 per week.

Act now to get in the action. You can contact Steve at

Recently received som new fantastic peacock lures from Kermitt Adams of These topwater lures are made of high quality wood and have a tremendous painting touch. Cannot wait to try these out on some grande peacock bass in January. The peacock rippers are topwater propeller lures which are made of quality hardwood and top of the line components. The hotdog is a zara spook type lure with rattles while the mega pop should really call some giant peacocks in. I highly recommend you try these out on your next peacock bass trip. Also, Kermitt makes some quality bass lures as well! Check them out on

Pumice Creek Lodge owner, Gary LaRose, notified me that he is extending his silver salmon season an additional 2 weeks in September. Pumice Creek is located on the Alaska Peninsula. Daily flyouts are to the Cinder River for silvers or Lava Creek for char. These are prime weeks for big numbers of big silvers. IN my opinion the Alaska Peninsula offers the best silver salmon fishing in a remote location bar none. Most Peninsula Lodges have a long waiting list during the prime weeks. Act now to get into this great fishing.

For more information, contact Gary LaRose at or contact me at

La Zona update

Ramiro Ramirez, manager of La Zona Lodge, contacted me this week. Ramiro says the Spring Season has started on the Uruguay River which is slightly high due to rains in Southern Brazil. Ramiro reports the dorado fishing is good, with an average of 1 40lbs giant dorado being caught every 2 days.

As you might know, La Zona is a restricted zone near the Salto Grande Dam on the Uruguay River on the Argentina/Uruguay border. It is famous for having the largest dorado on earth!
