La Zona update for last 2 weeks in April

Friend Steve Cihat fished the Uruguay River in the section called La Zona during April 19th to 22nd. Steve's group of 4 had excellent fishing with the lagest dorado caught by Dr. Everette Howell at a gigantic 48lbs! This was Dr. Howell's first trip to La Zona. Congratulations! Dr. Howell's wife caught a giant 40lbs in one of her first fishing trips of her life. What a way to start off your fishing career!

Steve Cihat said the top lures were Rapala mag 30 in firetiger and large Bass Buzz Baits with large colarado blades. Steve reports boating 68 dorado in 1 day! This is amazing as the dorado are very difficult to land due to their "jaws of steel"!

Friend Dr. Carroll Mann's group fished in La Zona the following week April 226th-29th
They also had great action with the largest dorado reported for the week at a monsterous 45lbs.

According to head guide Enzo, the top 5 dorado caught in La Zona so far this season have all been caught in April with 50lbs being the largest. The others were 48lbs, 47lbs, 46lbs and 45lbs. Looks like April is a great time for big dorado.

Another great time to catch monster dorado is during the months of September and October when the dorado stage up to spawn. The dorado normally packs on a few pounds during these months.

Check out and to follow the dorado fishing along with my posts.
