Am sure everyone out there has cabin fever including me. Due to the coronavirus, our lives have been drastically put on hold. Dream fishing trips to lands outside the USA have become a hope. When International Travel can begin is in question with a few countries saying they will not open anytime soon, maybe not until 2022! So, what is a person to do who wants to wet a line? A few friends have recently been fishing locally in the USA. Friend, Gary Clark has been fishing for big largemouth bass with Capt. Durwood Day on Lake Toho in Florida.

As mentioned in previous posts, we are going to do an exploratory trip for surubi catfish elsewhere on the Uruguay River to determine if it is feasible to offer this fishing to clients which stand up to the high standards La Zona Lodge has. The hope is to have clients extend their dorado trip a few days to catch a trophy surubi and/ or clients fishing at other Argentina Lodges such as Jurassic Lake to extend their trip. Clients on the proposed surubi trip will stay in the La Zona Lodge hotel with the dorado clients and drive in from Buenos Aires with them, unless extending their current trip. This will be at a much reduced rate compared to the high demand golden dorado fishing in the zone! Stay tuned for an update later this fall.

Many of us, including I, am confined to our houses due to State restrictions on the coronavirus. Hopefully this will end sooner than later as I am sure all of us want to get back to our normal daily lives. I am dying to wet a line and getting cabin fever after watching TV all day long and seeing the Stock Market drop drastically. This epidemic has caused cancellation of trips and flights. I for one have had trips to La Zona Lodge in Argentina, Jurassic Lake Lodge in Argentina, and perhaps a trip to the Tugar River in Russia postponed till a later date after all is clear. However, with numerous airlines cancelling a large percentage of International Flights throughout this year, I am booking domestic trips with the hope that flights will be available.

Luke's trips are for devout anglers who can take care of themselves and do not leave to leave footprints in this "Land That Time Forgot". If isolation is what your looking for, look no further! If your looking for luxury go elsewhere and I guarantee you the fishing experience will not be the same! I for one am here for the fantastic fishing opportunities and to get back to nature! If I wanted luxury I would just book a week long stay at a lodge or houseboat where the waters have been pounded by others and the remote experience would not be available! Plus I would pay thousands more for this so called luxury! Luke's guides know these waters where you likely are the first on earth to wet a line. To my knowledge there are not many remaining spots on this earth that offer this opportunity.
The waters are countless and you will not see other fisherman during your stay. The scenery cannot be accurately described by words as the colors of the ocean are astounding. This was my 4th trip to Papua New Guinea.
Port Moresby, where you fly into, has numerous 5 star hotels and restaurants. Luke's number one priority is SAFETY! Luke teaches all clients the proper means to land these brutes and to set up your tackle. This for me was priceless as this teaching is not available in the Chicago Area. I for one, go back year after year to my favorite destinations as evident by fishing the Alaska Peninsula for 30 years. There are too many ripoff outfitters out there so go with the best! I for one will be returning to wet a line with Rock Expeditions until my arms tell me no
