Peacock bass fishing in Itapará
In the Itapará River, fishermen can find three species of tucunares: açu, paca, azul and butterfly.
But it is not just peacock bass that the Itapará River offers. In fact, the aquatic fauna is quite varied: in the region you can also find piranhas, arowanas, pirararas, the fast surubins and even the great pirarucu. However, the stars of the fishery are the peacock bass.
In the region of the Itapará river, the sport fishing season begins at the end of September (end of the rainy season), when the waters recede from the igapós to the natural riverbed (gutter), extending until the end of April.
With the end of the rains, what used to be a single large body of water gradually forms small lakes and ponds, accessed by narrow channels. These are the best places to fish.
At that time, peacocks gather in schools and attack everything they see ahead. It's a real show!
