Techniques and equipment required to fish properly in this populated area near Concordia, Entre Ríos. Huge specimens were surprised in a day of fishing with friends. Image gallery.
Without a doubt, the showmanship and combativeness of the vogue occupy a privileged place for freshwater fishermen.
Its subtle pique, the form of gnaw the bait, the stubbornness by let of the hook, weakness in the mouth, the choice of your area of stalking, State of always warning of imminent danger, mistrust and various other features added so many fans congregate it season after season in his quest.
Boga pique is very characteristic. You are biting the bait by bits and have a moment “just” to try to nail. Then the fisherman, must decide when you feel that it is instantly indicated to sink his hook. The experience is worth much. And, no doubt, is species that makes teaching, because they will be more the wrong shafts than the expirence. Obviously, with the accumulation of hours of fishing we will have greater confidence that crucial moment decision to realize the pique.
Fight and areas
Once nailed, boga begins with a zig-zag and keeps him with a force that often prevails over the possibilities of equipment. And there is when we must use our knowledge, cunning and intuition to subdue them.
The place where we can find them is very broad, but all the estuary of the Río de la Plata and the basins of the rivers Paraná and Uruguay are without a doubt the most prominent. On this occasion we have chosen close to the dam of Salto Grande, in Concord. We received comments on the large bream that were out there, really a place privileged in terms of sizes and quantity.
Without doubt a moment we set up the group, take the precautions for the teams to use due to sizes that were obtained and the strength of the current in that area of the River, and quickly arrived at destination.
We carry in our rods long, powerful vehicles and with lot of stock tip, slip leads of 10 to 125 grams, small and medium-sized swivels with good resistance and snoods armed with nylon 0.40 mm to attach short, strong hooks and a size N ° 12-16, style Maruseigo.
Here lines fixed or sliding of two hooks do not work the way we need to make them work, so only we would bear them as a test.
Some reels were loaded with 0.18 to 0.20 mm multifilament, and others with nylon to 0.35 mm. They were mostly Rotary or low-profile reels.
According to fans in the area, the type of fishing to be used is called “on the run”. It is to chop the lead against stones, by releasing meters of nylon line progresses. We are always doing that work with the reel open, by pressing the drum with our thumb and releasing it each time we want to move the rig, making a slight motion with the tip of the fishing rod.
Either way, boga can take the bait being still at the bottom, either when print you the described movement. The main deception is soaked corn, but many times the white worm and dough can work with equal effectiveness.
In harmony we were waiting our guides with the truckers ready and eager to turn into reality its advances in terms of the size of the Bogue: predicted that often exceed the 4 kilos of weight. And as an example we can mention the minimum measure for the traditional contest of the kind that takes place in these waters: exceed 65 cm in length.
Leaving from the Creek bordering the campsite La Tortuga Alegre, to travel distances are very short, so soon we will be fishing. On this occasion, the first relieved was upstream, taking as a reference the famous posters that limit entry to the area of the dam. We throw the anchor and, once anchored, by way of fattening threw hundreds of corn kernels. While both, were putting together teams, all equal and with a single gear hook embodied many times with a single corn.
Salto Grande boga is very quick to eat, and if we are not vigilant insurance that we will lose it. At the beginning, perhaps, cost to take your hand to pique, but is like everything else: you just have to pay the maximum attention or follow signs to those who know more.
With all armed, we cast our lines. We dropped some near the boat until bottoming, to there begin to “bite” them. We throw another 10 meters sideways, or in direction of the current. In all cases, the sprints were almost instant, some lost and others recognised, as it is an unavoidable standard with this species. If when pique we feel we cannot carry out the Dunk, it is convenient to collect because surely no longer we have bait.
The regulation of equipment is another very important support, because often it should tighten the star at the time of the Dunk, but we must correct it immediately to begin the fight.
Thus, one after another, the Bogue were demonstrating why are so coveted in the place. Once relieved the area of cartels, raise the anchor and derive about 500 meters until you come to a sandy beach. We feed again with corn and water lines.
Bogue between 2 and 3.5 kilos were constant. Until a violent led cut the air above the boat. It was a strip, release from two sides: on the boat to subdue the fish, and from the River to gain his freedom. Until emerged a huge bogon behind the engine. To the amazement of everyone was heard: “!” Which animal! “.” It was the exclamation point the fisherman, who had never seen a size as well. The incredible bogon was around the 5 kilos.
With this capture, we gave ended our day by corroborated the fabulous fishing that can be found in that privileged portion of the Uruguay River.
The boga Lake fishing is a challenge that any angler should experience. A species that should not be underestimated, as it requires technique, attention and concentration to not miss any chance to a pique as selective. Although they will catch many, the challenge that we must take objective is to reduce failed attempts. In addition to the personal satisfaction for the good catches, the Bogue surely will bring us an extremely important wealth of knowledge and experience which we refine every time you return for her.
