MY EIGHT DAYS OF CHRISTMAS FISHING TRIPS- SURINAME LAU LAU
Ever want to set hook into a huge Semi-Truck? Well, travel to the remote rivers in Suriname and battle the monster Lau Lau/ Piraiba and you will soon realize what I am talking about. Suriname is a remote country located in the Northeastern Atlantic coast of South America. It is bordered by French Guiana to the east, Guyana to the west, and Brazil to the south. Outfitter, Paul DeBoer, who is here on Facebook knows the best rivers in Suriname to catch the Lau Lau. During my trip a few exceeding 200 pounds were landed, but they get much larger if you dare battle one that size! Broken rods, stripped reels, snapped hooks are the norm when battling these beasts. You will be fishing in the remote Suriname rainforest far away from modern civilization.
Paul utilizes a small houseboat for your sleeping/eating quarters and pulls a few smaller fishing boats along the way. After hearing rumors on the battling abilities of these Piraiba, I can vouch for them as evident by my sore arms which ached for weeks after the trip.
