Peacock Bass Fishing Trip: An Adventurous Trip To the Amazon

Well, going for fishing trip to Amazon is a dream for any adventurous nature lover. Are you a beginner in fishing and want the fishing trip to be more rewarding and memorable, exciting and adventurous? It is better to have more knowledge about the nature of fishing. Well, let us focus on peacock bass at the moment. It is exhilarating to know more about the exact behavior of peacock bass while fishing takes place.

The peacock bass is known for its ferocious striking power. They are aggressive and hit the surface lure with great violent force. Quiet often, it is deceptive and this is where an angler needs to be careful. Do not lose the patience as at this point as the angler may get into a mode where he wants to pull the drag away expecting to catch the bass; however, most of the time it does not happen.

Another notable point when the peacock bass strikes the lure is that it shows ferocious sheer power which is ever misleading for the angler. The force of the strike makes the fisherman believe that the fish might be of a larger size. The truth is that the peacock bass has such a sheer power and violent behavior that can come from a huge fish type. This sort of fishing experience only comes from Amazon fishing trips because the area is well known for peacock bass and this fact make it so desiring to go for a fishing trip.

The angler who comes across the peacock bass often mistakes that fighting with them would be easy. However, the story is different because they do not get easily tired despite it shows such a sheer power right from the beginning. The angler would think that they are going to drain out on their energy and may initially give up; but it happens only after an elongated period of struggling with them.

It is said that the best time to lure a peacock bass is pre-spawn period. Also it is better to start your angling in the early morning hours or in the evening time when the light is softened. The early morning is one time they are wholly hungry and in a mood to gulp down anything and everything. This is the best time for an angler to put his flies.

Those who want to go for Amazon fishing adventures mostly focus on peacock bass fishing as they are the most available game fish in that area. The adventurer who wants to seek more thrills and excuse would never regret if he chooses the Amazon fishing vacation. Moreover, there are a thousand of guidelines available and a number of fishing and adventure companies waiting to help out these nature lovers who make it big in a Amazon fishing adventure trip.

Lure Selection and Colors

BASS CAN SEE COLORS

When looking at bass fishing lures one thing to keep in mind. We all know bass can see, but do they see colors the same way we do? Here is some information that might help the next time you are looking for the perfect color of crankbait. All colors have a wavelength. The visible colors from shortest to longest wavelength are: violet, blue, green, yellow, orange, and red. When light hits the water it starts to be filtered out. Red is filtered first, then orange, then yellow and so on down the line. So when you throw out your bright red lipless crank bait after a few feet it is sorta orange, then turns yellow, then greenish yellow, then green and later after traveling through the color spectrum becomes black.

Having done some spear fishing I can tell you from experience that the deer you go the more blue everything appears. I guess that's why they call it the deep blue. We have all seen the shows on TV about the deep diving sub marines looking for the Titanic or some other sunken ship. They all have big spotlights on them because it is pitch black, all the colors have been filtered. So if your fishing for bass at a depth of 12 feet I seriously doubt that the color red will be visible to the fish because it is the first color filtered. All this scientific stuff on color helped me realize that the color of your lure is probably not important after a certain depth.

What is? I would say the profile would be important, I doubt a bass would have any interest in your bright red car keys. On second thought … nah. The profile of your bait is a factor, as well as action. The action of the bait is how it wiggles, how it moves water, the noises it makes, the things it does to entice a bite. We know from the above information on color that all of our lures are blue-ish at deeper levels so action and profile would be more important for me in choosing a lure for deeper water fishing.

My favorite deep water tactical is a wacky Senko! I use a weighted, weed less hook with an O ring on my Senko and I hook the O ring with the hook and drop her down to the depth I want and wait. What color, c'mon have not you read the article. Green Pumpkin by the way. Yea, Yea I know color does not matter, but a green pumpkin Senko with a little red flake looks more juicy to me!

Crankbait Lures

There are many crankbait lures and designs. They generally look like some sort of bait fish or crawfish. There are "lipless" crankbaits. They are typically more productive in weed and rock structure.

Typically crankbaits for largemouth bass should be 2-5 inches. Crankbaits are one of the most lifelike lures you can use. Fall is my favorite time to use crankbaits, especially shad and crawfish crankbaits. The bigger the lip on the crankbait, the deeper it will dive. I believe it's best to use heavier line (1214 lb. test) when using shallow running crankbaits, and lighter line (8lb. Test) for defrunning crankbaits. A lot of professionals will use 2025 lb. test when fishing shallowrunning crankbaits. One important thing is you want to make sure that the crankbait is running straight. I like to pause often when retrieving the crankbait, since it produces me more strikes. I also find it more productive to mainly retrieve the crankbait by pulling it in with the pole and reeling in the slack on the pause.

Shallow running crankbaits in summer are great. I have particularly caught a lot of bass using the Rebel Crawfish. Its important to remember to pick your size of crankbait according to generally how big the bait fish are in your location. Bass will often stick to one size. You'll want multiple sizes of the same crankbait and make sure you have crankbaits that run at different depths. Its a good idea to have some pending crankbaits around that will stay at one depth when you stop reeling in. Some people like to use a wire snap. I like to just use a swivvle snap to connect my crankbaits to the line. They are quick for changing out crankbaits for example if you wanted to try a different size, depth, or color.

Top water crankbaits:
-I like to use injured shad top water crankbaits.

Shallow running crankbaits:
-Shallow diving crankbaits are either short-lipped crankbaits or lipless crankbaits.

Short-lipped crankbaits:
-Most only dive 1-3 feet.

-I recommend thin crankbaits with flat sides in cold water, and rounder crankbaits that wobble in warmer water. -Some short-lipped crankbaits are long and skinny and some are short and fat.
-Short-lipped crankbaits float when stopped. They should be fished slow.

Lipless Crankbaits:
-I recommend using lipless crankbaits in shallow water, with a fast retrieve. -You can also let lipless crankbaits sink and fish for suspended bass.
-You can get ones that sink or float at rest. Most of them sink.

Medium divers or mid-water crankbaits:
-Medium divers go from about 5-12 feet deep.

Deep diving crankbaits:
-These crankbaits can go down to 30 feet. They are most productive at 20 feet. You can use deep diving crankbaits for largemouth but I do not recommend it. I'd just stick to the jig & pig lures.

Things to remember about crankbaits:
-The bigger the lip the deeper the crankbait will go.
-The lip just determines how deep the lure will go. Some float and when you reel it in, they go down to what the lip is set for.
-Some sink. The ones that sink will usually sink at a rate of one foot per second. So, if you know how deep the fish are these are great.
-When picking your color and size of crankbait try to match what the body of watre your fishing on has to offer as far as bait fish and such. -Use natural colors in clear water and bright colors in dark water.

Largemouth Bass: A Day in the Boat Video Review

This video is not exactly a spring chicken having been shot back in the 90's when the Lindners were still associated with In-Fisherman, but the information it contains is timeless. That, my friends, is the most important thing.

I have to admit that this video did a lot to change my fishing career. While I had always been somewhat successful in my fishing efforts, being able to sit there in the boat with Al Lindner for 60 minutes really opened my eyes to a lot of things I was doing wrong and how I could improve my fishing results.

Watching this videoaveave me a new arsenal of techniques and, most importantly, helped me put together a system for finding bass in any body of water no matter what the conditions. Seeing how Al picked apart a given body of water and how he systematically worked each of the zones looking for active bass really turned the light on upstairs in my dusty attic of a brain.

Before I had always hahazardly worked around a lake with no real plan or idea what to do next. Trying this lure or that, casting here and casting there, sure that the next cast was going to catch a fish. Always with a constant streams of doubts playing the back of my mind – maybe I am using the wrong color, maybe the lure is wrong, I bet the fish are over there, I'm sure the fish are here and if I keep working this area … Well, you get the idea.

Armed with the information I picked up from this video, and being able to actually see it being implemented right in front of me, I was no longer at the mercy of Lady Luck when I hit the water. Now I was able to confidently fish everywhere and use those same techniques to quickly eliminate water and get the active bass pinned down to a certain area. Once located, it is just a matter of finding exactly which lure and presentation will make those bass go totally unhinged. And, that is when the real fun starts!

There is a lot of truth to the old adage that 10% of the fisherman catch 90% of the fish. It is not that the 10% that do all the catching are lucky, or possess some sort of "magic lure" that the bass fall all over themselves trying to be the next victim. It is quite simply that this 10% know how to quickly eliminate the unproductive water and concentrate on only the water that is holding bass while the other 90% of fisherman are somewhere else casting aimlessly.

It is this system of finding fish that separates the pros from the amateurs.

Like I said, the actual video is a bit dated, but the information is classic and should be in the arsenal of every fisherman no matter what species of fish they are pursuing. If you are looking to catch more bass, or any kind of fish for that matter, I would actually suggest you check out Largemouth Bass: A Day in the Boat. I guarantee you will at least take away something that will make you more successful on the water.

Largemouth Bass Lures

At one point all most every bait used has probably been a bass. Manufacturers and fishermen classify bass lures by the depth at which they are most effectively used – top-water, mid-water and deep-running.

Top Water – Now, of course top water lures such as buzz baits, poppers, and surface plugs are great for shallow water. The best results for top water lures will come from water that's 5 feet or less near some kind of structure. example (weed beds, brush, land-points etc.)

– Buzz baits are one of the best baits for a fun catch. The bass will literally attack them out of no where. A good one for the bigger bass too.

– Very productive, especially in late spring at the end of the spawn.

– Good for fishing allot of water in a short time.

– I suggest using this to find pools of bass and then slow down withe something more discrete so not to scare all the fish off.

– You should catch more fish if you attach a plastic shad body to the hook. To the fish it looks like a meal with all the commotion. It looks like a fish fluttering away in a panic. Thats really all they see. The blades became invisible during spinning on the top of the water.

– I use a 1/2 ounce buzz bait if the water is choppy or even a 3/4 ounce.

– a 1/4 ounce if the bass are smaller and or the water is calm.

Hula Poppers are one of my favorite top water baits to use.

– best for calmer waters. It's quite a bit slower than fishing a buzz bait.

Mid-water-Some mid-water lure examples (crank-baits, spoons, minnow-plugs)

Spoons are versatile. They can be fished at almost any depth and retrieval speed. Minnow plugs and crank-baits have a lip that makes the lure to dive when you reel it in. Some models float on the surface when at rest, and some sink. The sinking ones can be used at almost all depths by counting down the sinking to the depth you want it.

Crank-Bait lures are one of my favorite lures to use. I've taught more fish on crank-baits than almost any other lure. Particularly the Rebel Crawfish.

The Big Craw meets the demand for larger, deeper-runners and runs at depths of up to 10 feet. The ultra-light Rebel Crawfish is unduly one of the most popular fishing lures in the world. Its small life-like profile entices and catches all sizes of game fish – especially bass, trout, and panfish. The versatile family of Rebel Lures Crawfish are quite possibly the most productive series of crankbaits ever made. Deep, shallow, suspending, cast, or trolled for virtually any freshwater species there's a Rebel Crawfish that's designed to get the job done.

-People I fish with always want to know what I'm using when I sneak on my rebel crawfish crank-bait. I suggest having a useful of these things around and in different sizes.

Deep water – Deep structure in summer with jigging-spoons that are fished just off the bottom is a good idea. These lures can also be dressed with pork rind or soft-bodied attractors. Other deep water lures include lead-heads, plastic worms etc .. Steep drop offs are great for jigs with an imitation crayfish on it. bouncing it barely off the bottom as you bring it in.

– A great lure all most times of the year (off the deep side of weedbeds, straight out from points, etc …) is a dark colored lead-headed jig with a pork frog attached to that. The jig should have a skirt on it. Its especially productive in early spring and fall. I like to cast it towards shore and hop it out to a drop off and let it flutter over a drop off. Deep diving crankbaits are also good. Just let it hit bottom and let it lay with a little jig once and a while. Use either a dark pork frog or a green one. If you're careful with that pork frog you'll get a few – many fishing trips with it, depending on how careful you are. they are really strong. You have to finesse it off the hook though.

Something to keep in mind, Bass like the color RED! If one color does not work, try another. Use brighter colors in clear water and darker colors in darker water. Another thing to keep in mind, leaches work great also! I have eaten a lot of fish on leaches. I think they're a lot better than worms ever thought of being. Probably because of how active the leach is in the water.
