Brazil, Tayacu

The brand new yacht Tayacu for monster peacock fishing in the Barcelos, Santa Isabella region. A very nice and comfortable boat accommodating 12 fishermen with total comfort and agility to navigate the low waters during dry season, its draft (hull) is only 34 inches (85 cm ), this is what makes Tayaçu the best choice for reaching most promising fishing spots at very low water levels where the big Yachts don’t dare to enter. The Tayacu has 6 rooms fully air conditioned, private bathrooms and showers, two rooms are queen size style beds and have more space to store your personal belongings. Undoubtedly the Barcelos/Santa Isabel region is one of the most productive region in the world for fishing the peacock bass, numerous reasons the number of tributaries, non existence of heavy commercial fishing, difficult navigation in shallow rivers. We now have exclusivity on remote rivers where many operators are not allowed to enter. We have set up a local indigenous foundation for the area. We have the ability to fish in the Rio Negro basin out of Santa Isabela (Rio Negro, Padauiri, Aracá, Cuiuni, Caurés, Arirarrá, Urubaixi, Preto, Alegria, Uneiuxi Our staff always bring someone from the local communities to get the feel of the place and situate all guides where there are more probabilities to get the best fishing at that water level.

The thrill that comes when a giant Peacock Bass explodes on your 7″ surface plug being ripped across the top of the water, knocking it four feet into the air only to turn and grab it as it lands back on the water has to be experienced to be believed. The Peacock Bass will challenge the skills and the equipment of every fisherman. From the feisty butterfly peacock bass which can weigh up to 12 pounds to the giant “tucanare” peacock bass that can break the scales over 20 pounds, every strike raises the possibility of a new world record. At the end of each day, both fisherman and tackle have to be repaired and rested for the next exciting day.
Many fishermen planned on a one-time “trip of a lifetime” only to keep returning each year for another chance to experience the pristine beauty of the Amazon and to do battle with another giant Peacock Bass.
