The Question

Hello: Going fishing on the Amazon in Brazil for Peacock Bass what type of tackle do you suggest water condition a bit low?

The Answer

Hi Austin.

I haven't fished for peacocks yet - we had a trip to the Amazon planned for last year but then had to cancel. Everything I read and hear about them (plus all the buddies that have gone) tell me that muskie tackle perfectly fits the bill. Bucktail action rods and baitcasting reels spooled with good braided line. Noisy surface lures ... prop baits and such are also the ticket.

Your outfitter should be able to tell you what to bring ... otherwise do a search on the internet and you'll get lots more good advice.

Have fun!
