ABACAXI

When looking closely at our three locations, you will quickly see that our Abacaxi fishery offers a completely unique experience.  Exotic and rare peacock bass, a high variety of species, sight fishing, and more. Believe it or not, that's not even the best part.  

This area of the Abacaxi has not been touched by another angler or outfitter for years.  You read that right.  That's why we don't have all the slick beautiful photos of this fishery.  All we have are videos and photos from our advance "machete team" that cut their way in to explore the area.  This river is well known for its population of the rare pinima peacock bass.

What is a pinima or yellow peacock bass?  Well, imagine a predator aggressive enough to push out the temensis peacock bass, the species that dominates the rest of the Amazon fisheries.  When we say these fish are aggressive, watch very closely what is happening in following the video.  One strip into this perfect cast, a pinima hits the lure.  Two more strips and the fish hits it again. In this situation, a temenis (or acu/paca) would likely go back to cover where he started. A pinima doesn't give up that fast, they have to hunt that lure down and kill it. Watch this unbelievable footage as the pinima peacock bass follows the lure for well over 70 feet and eats the lure as it is hanging off the rod tip!

See why this place is special?  Well, there's a lot more here to catch than the pinima. This fishery has a healthy population of arowana that will readily take a surface lure or over-sized Chernobyl ant fly pattern.  Anglers can take a break from casting to multiple species of peacock bass and SIGHT FISH to arowana weighing up to 14 pounds! This is literally our only fishery where a floating fly line is a viable option. This place is special.

What makes this location unique:

  • Private, exclusive fishery.  HAS NOT BEEN FISHED IN YEARS. This is the year to fish this one!

  • Variety:  This property offers the highest concentration of species of all of our fisheries: Butterfly, papoca, and pinima peacock bass, schools of cruising arowana, pacu, red belly and black piranha, and more.

  • Expected catch rates: We aim for 1,100 fish landed per week with 8 guests, with 15% of those fish being double-digit in pounds. 

  • Guests will experience opportunities to cast to multiple double-digit peacock bass every day and to multiple species each day.

  • Live aboard our beautiful floating cabins that are relocated each week to ensure our guests are closest to the most pristine lakes and lagoons dictated by water levels. Double occupancy with two beds and a private bath/shower.

  • Minimal human impact results in fantastic opportunities to view the best of the jungle's birdlife and wildlife.
