I was recently introduced by friend, Etan Zimmet, about a book on Goliath tigerfish. Author, Douglas Dann, wrote "The Largest Tigerfish in the World" The Goliath". In the book, Dann discusses the history of the goliaths with top records, best lures, places and when to go after these beasts. The best place Dann states is in the Congo which at this time is quite dangerous. Since taking a trip to Tanzania for tigerfish, catching a goliath is a dream which hopefully will come true one day. A missionary from my church currently preaches in the Congo. Hopefully one day I get the chance to ask him about fishing for the goliaths.
Friend, Terry McBrayer, had the opportunity to fish for monster rainbow trout out of Jurassic Lake Lodge, Argentina. during the last week of April. Jurassic Lake a.k.a Lago Strobel is located in the Southern end of Argentina's Patagonia region. Here, the largest rainbow trout on earth swim. Terry reports the water was very low and did not fish in the Rio Barrancoso which flows into Jurassic located a short walk from Jurassic Lake Lodge. However the fishing was fantasic near the river mouth according to Terry. McCloud River rainbow smolt were introduced into Jurassic back in 1989. These wild rainbows had the perfect environment to grow to huge sizes, no predators and ice cold water full of an unlimited food supply. Terry's 87 years old friend landed a huge rainbow pushing the scales at 22 lbs. Terry says he did not hear of a rainbow under 10 lbs being landed at the mouth of the Barrancosco. I can attest to the size of these rainbows having fished out of Jurassic Lake Lodge the past 2 years and already have booked for 2017.
