Temperatures were about 29°C, and we had a couple of nights with some rain. 

Fishing Conditions

For our fifth week of the season, we were joined by some great anglers, including Richard, Chris, Diane (one of the toughest anglers we have ever met), and our friend Jako. All amazing anglers, they did very well on the water, and among the many highlights was landing the largest arapaima of the season - a 2m, 37cm giant. We also landed well over 30-40 arowana. The water came up and that normally helps with the number of fish caught. And to our surprise, we had some success with arapaima taking poppers!

Total number of fish landed during the week: 92

Biggest fish landed during the week:

-Arapaima: 237cm

-Tambaqui: 64cm 

-Arowana: 83cm
