Just thought it might be a good time to ask where everyone s going this year and if you've got any new tricks up your sleeve to try?

Wow, no takers, huh?

OK, I'll answer my own question and maybe that will get the ball rolling. I am going with a group of four to the South Madeira, Igapo Acu region mid-September which is the earliest I've been down. Water levels seem to be more predictable that time of year than any other. We'll see.

As far as new tricks, I did as well with the Yozuri Trembler Minnow (105 size) last trip as the guys with jigs so I'll be taking a few more down in different colors. I also may try a rapidly worked River2Sea wide glide. I'm trying to get the action of it down in the lake out back. It's not easy to work fast.

Rick, I'm not planning on going down this season, but you never know!

As far as lures, I had very good success with the 155mm Sebile Stick Shadd in orange/black stripes at La Zona. Also the Rapala Glidin' Rap. My gut feeling is that erratically worked glide baits are underutilized on peacocks. I also want to use the 5" Sebile Magic Swimer soft and 6" Zoom Fluke.

Hi Dan:

Interesting that you would mention the flukes. I use them all the time for bass and can really make them dance with an erratic action. I don't see why they wouldn't work. I do know that the banjo minnow works in clear water conditions. That's just a variation on the fluke in my opinion. The two things I hear about plastics in general: 1) the toothy critters tear 'em up quickly; and 2) they weigh an awful lot so bringing a good supply can be tricky.

I'm open if anyone has tried them with any success....
