How to fish for Peacock Bass?

The best methods to fish for Peacock Bass would be either fly fishing or lure fishing. The Peacock Bass tend to hang around structure so heavy strong lines and strong gauged hooks are a must. We have written some good reports for Peacock Bass fishing that will give you Top Tips for Catching Peacock Bass.

How to catch Arapaima?

We have Arapaima in all sizes, fish between 10-80 pound are common and you can expect several bites per day from these fish, how many you land, however, is up to you and quite often a mixture of angling skill and lady luck, but we have had days with over a dozen fish landed per boat in a single day. Fishing for these fish is mainly using lighter rods 10# rods and mainly all floating lines. The larger fish 80-400 pounds tend to be found in different areas, so when wishing to target the monsters the number of takes would be less, but well worth the wait/effort as these fish when hooked is going to give you the fight of your life. Fishing for the larger specimens will require a 12# rod with sink tips and also full sinking lines. We have got many Arapaima fishing blogs with Top Tips to Catch Arapaima that will help you with your fly fishing holiday to Brazil
