Peacock Bass Rio Negro

Friend and longtime peacock bass angler, Wilson Cox, recently landed the peacock bass of his dreams, a monster weighing in at 21 lbs.  Wilson was fishing the Blackwater Explorer booked by Acute Angling.  Wilson's trophy was landed on a minnow bait type lure.  The water levels were low according to Wilson and they fished mainly in the river.  His partner and him landed and released 442 peacocks.  On the Blackwater Explorer were 13 anglers who landed a total of 2840 peacocks with another monster 20 lbs being caught by another in the group.  Avid Angler, Gary Clark, reported today that due to extreme low water conditions, his trip to the Amazon next week has been cancelled.  So, if you are heading to peacock country soon make sure to check with your outfitter regarding water levels.
