My group of 4 avid fishermen returned to very low water conditons on the Uruguay River to battle with the monster golden dorado of La Zona. After months of preparation we had the right lures, big golden Doctor Spoons. The catch was totally a dream with 11 dorado exceeding the magical 40lbs mark including a record 3 monster over 50lbs with the largest at 55lbs land by Cole Lundquist. La Zona is a section of the Uruguay River boarding on Argentina/Uruguay. In the zone there is only allowed 4 boats on specific days of the week and specific times. Here, near the Salto Grande Dam swim some of largest concentration of monster dorado on this earth. The battle put on the dorado is tremendous with many broken lures, snapped leaders, bent hooks, broken rods, and stripped out gears on reels. This season I used the new Shimano TranX PG and is passed the test in flying colors. The TranX is very powerful, holds lots of line, and casts very smoothly. I high recommend this reel. The La Zona dorado trip ran at La Zona Lodge by Untamed Angling, is a very high demand trip. Book early to lock in the best dates for 2013. Contact Steve Yatomi at www.adventuretravelalliance.com or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org This is definately a trip of a lifetime and I have already booked for next season.

Capt. Jean Francois Helias of www.anglingthailand.com reports excellent fishing for monster fish at Ratchaburi. Today, one of Francois clients landed a monster 38kg Giant Siamese Carp and a 40kg Chao Phraya. Last week the fishing was excellent at other fishing ponds for such species as giant redtail catfish, huge arapaima, monster barramundi. Thailand has numerous opportunities to land the fish of your dreams. I can vouch for this after 2 successful trips to Thailand for monster fish. The only problem with fishing Thailand is leaving with very sore arms!!!

In preparation for my upcoming trip to La Zona dorado, much tackle preparation is necessary to battle one of the toughest freshwater fish on this planet, the golden dorado. On all lures, the split rings need to be removed and replaced with the strongest rings on earth, the triple-coiled rings made by the Wolverine Tackle Company www.wolverinetackleinc.com, contact Terry at
firstname.lastname@example.org for more inforation. These rings are the only rings I have found to hold up to the lure breaking strength of the golden dorado. Also all hooks need to be replaced with the top of the line Owner ST-76 trebels. If you thought the ST-66s were "the super hook", the ST-76 is the biggest, baddest big game treble hook on the market. These hooks are 5X strong, finished with corrision resistant vacuum-tinned finish, three super sharp power points and short shanks. Next make sure all lures are free of puncture marks made by previous fishing trips. Coat these spots with a super strong adhesion found at your local hardware store. I then repaint all destroyed lures then coat with a clear coat of enamel adhesion. Check all leaders and toss out any damaged ones. Take off all braided line and check for damaged spots. Replace if needed. Check all rods guides and tips for sharp edges, etc... These tackle preparation tips will greatly improved the odds of landing that mosnter golden dorado of your dreams!!
