Peacock Bass Structure
Discover Their Favorite Lairs!
Sand bars are one of the prime structures to fish for peacock bass. Keep in mind that sandbars are dynamic structures, as they constantly change their shape and are created and formed by flowing rivers and are revealed during falling or low water conditions.
Trophy-size peacock bass will often pursue baitfish onto the sandbars from deeper water. Sandbars are not neatly formed beaches with uniform depths.
Closer inspection reveals irregular features such as drop-offs, finger points and deeper holes (see aerial view at left), where giant peacock bass hold.
Some of the largest fish caught in Braziil’s Amazon watershed have come on large prop baits on the sandbars, both on top of the finger points of the sandbars and the depressions between the finger points. Do not hesitate to use subsurface lures as well.
The most productive sand bars, although they may be shallow themselves, have relatively close access to deep water.
