Betty Summer with a rod breaking
bass. Caught in small lake in Apopka
John Gore and 11 year old grandson.
had a great trip to the Amazon. "Riley"
and our guide "John" holding two 14lb peacock that we caught at the same
time (double hookup) from a cruising school on the Marmelos River in the
central Amazon region of Brazil on Wednesday, July 16th, 2008.
Both were taken on my
own hand tied 9" long bucktail jigs.Riley and I caught 394
Peacock and another 30 other species such as Piranha, Payara, Bicuda,
dogfish, mantresão, etc. in 6 days of fishing.
Our entire group of 9
anglers caught just short of 1700 peacock with the 14 lb'rs topping the
scales. This was a father/son
(and one daughter) trip specifically tailored to the kids....not big
fish but big numbers.
