Herradura, located 40 kilometers from the city of Formosa, provided an excellent varied and its star, River bass fishing.
With Quique Abbate visited Formosa, invited by the Ministry of tourism to the presentation of the 15th Party national of the meagre Rio (see box) that was held a few days later. It is one the most important festivals of the country, that has as a backdrop the tourist village of Horseshoe and who convenes a number always rising from fishermen and tourists.
Horseshoe owes its name to the shape of the lagoon which flows 4 km away, and about which you have installed many campings and accommodations. This natural landscape offers excellent services for a stay in the open air, enjoying nautical tours and excellent fishing. The most experienced fans of the northeast of the country are those who concur in search of the corvina blonde in streams that link the lagoon Horseshoe with the Paraguay River. It is a precious fresh water fish that share the hooks with other attractive species. And need much heat to activate, reason by which the party takes place in February.
For the celebrated competition a few days ago big three downs boats were prepared and floating docks were completed. Here at calabasasshopping you can get more different models of the fishing fashion. To us we received Jorge Ferro, Advisor of tourism, logistics and transport. We went to the waterfront where the official presentation of the event, was developed in a ceremony headed by the City Mayor Juan Carlos Gómez and the Minister of tourism of Formosa, Ramiro Patri.
Heading to the lagoon
After the meeting, was waiting for us with a roast Pablo Miño, owner of the newly opened El Cortijo cabins. A great family business, surrounded by a native forest where we can enjoy the peace of nature, for example sighting more than 500 species of birds, monkeys, Howler and Caiman. And all framed by the Salado Creek. The next day, 8 o’clock we came to search the Guide Reinaldo Toad Saporitti, regarding the area and knowledgeable of the streams as anyone, with whom we were going to share two full days of fishing.
We start navigating the arroyo Salado, the longest in the province of Formosa. A few minutes we were already at the Horseshoe lagoon, in the mouth with the Paraguay River. Quickly prepare teams, placing upon the mother of the reel a sliding lead of 30 g and ending with a Pro Mustad hook 4/0 (long leg). We play with brunette greenstreak, a kind of brunette with no more than 15 cm. The areas that we find have an average depth of 3 meters. The key for these river croakers is search the backwaters, where we normally find them in school. The species has a great peculiarity: in an effort to feed themselves, has a very subtle and almost imperceptible led. You have to be very attentive. But at the same time the croakers are very voracious, with a protractile mouth to suck strongly, which makes most of the pieces come nailed his stomach and even though our intention is fishing with catch and will not save them life. For that reason the fishing regulation is very strict and only allows to capture five per angler and day parts. We use light equipment: rod of not more than 1.80 m and action of 10 to 13 pounds (1 pound: 0.453 kg).
On the first day of fishing we got almost all the species present in this lagoon. Touring and testing enabled the activity sectors gave catfish vest, white, yellow catfish, Jackfish, three points, paties, much presence of girls Piranhas and the main star that we came to search: the croaker of river. The croakers are small-sized and its regulatory minimum measure is 25 cm. Its average length is 35 cm. We had the opportunity to remove several which, to the surprise of the Guide, arrived at 40 cm. It’s a beautiful silvery fish, tiny scales and very sharp teeth. When we Err pique, to see our bait immediately we realize their attack, unlike piranhas who massacre the greenstreak each pique. Already in the evening we had ended that day to refuel for the next day.
Another great fishing
At the second exit we look for the species in the Cortapick River, but just gave lots of varied. And as only half a day left us ahead, we decided to return to the mouth of the Paraguay River, obviously the most productive place to give with the coveted Silver. As soon as we anchor the piques one after another, reason why I decided to try his luck with an artillery of lures, but I did not receive a single response, while Toad was a series of sprints followed one another.
The best farewell
We had the chance to test with lure in a few slides of coast. Reinaldo put bow to that Canyon and in no more than 20 minutes, we were doing a few attempts. We had a few carried but we could not nail them, and we are left with the bitter taste of not be able to raise them. This beautiful area of Formosa has really become an excellent fishing, many lovers of good sport fishing are discovered every year. Just browse a few minutes to be in strategic places, such as the mouths of the streams or tributaries, and not to mention the same Paraguay River. Happy with the result of fishing, we gave concluded the survey having enjoyed this so particular species that gives us the Horseshoe lagoon and its surroundings. It will be up to a new crossing of lines.
