Feb, 2014: Alto Parana Lodge on the Argentina and Paraguay boarder continue to impress us with explosive fishing. Guides are figuring out the local Pacu population and the weekly catch rate for these sought after species – demure when observed and downright crazy when hooked – continues to climb impressively. Dorado, as always, are present and last week showed one of our longtime clients Mr. J.D. a few beauties to hand. The Pira Pita are similar to fishing for baby tarpon, sipping gurglers from the surface and then impressing with searing runs for cover and multiple acrobatic displays. All in all, just a good ole fashioned fun fishing trip.
