Video: GEOBASS Season 2 – Peacock bass in Guyana

DEBILITATING illness, ticks in unsavoury places and the interminable quest for elusive world record-sized peacock bass just about summarises Costa’s GEOBASS exploration to Guyana.

In Guyana, the GEOBASS anglers – Thad Robison, Jay Johnson, Chris Owens and Brian Jill – find themselves up against the demanding elements only a remote rainforest can bring. Their quest for monster-sized peacock bass takes them 150 miles upriver in extremely low water, which requires them to drag their boats most of the way.

Robison almost has to be extracted out of the trip after suffering from an extreme stomach illness early in the adventure. “Trust me when I tell you being deep in the jungle when a stomach flu strikes is definitely not the place you want to be,” said Robison.

Along the way, the team encounter the incredible range of fish Guyana has to offer, including arawana, payara, butterfly peacock bass, and the prehistoric arapaima. See more GEOBASS episodes HERE.
