Pasimoni Peacocks
Enjoy Baitfish Buffet

Two years of abnormally high water flooded the forests for months beyond normal seasonal levels, allowing baitfish species to eat, drink and be merry in spawn. Then river levels began dropping rapidly, draining many of the lagoons, and moving countless tons of baitfish in concentrated river areas. Peacock bass found themselves with a veritable banquet of baitfish for much of the fishing season.

As they gorged, fish that might have weighed 17-19 pounds in a normal season were now easily topping the 20-pound mark. Itís clear from older pavon grande photos, that the classic Pasimoni peacock typically has a big head but lean body. Not so after this yearís buffet. This was the year of the big shouldered, all-beef Pavon.

The lesson here for peacock veterans is to take heart during high-water conditions that this is all part of a long-term natural cycle that will refresh and replenish the Amazonís sportfishing rivers for years to come.
