  1. Hmm, interesting stuff. Thanks for the link. Now I'm not sure exactly what species to put on my list! There's nothing that is readily identifiable on them (i.e. fins, scales). I'll have to learn the difference between the asian and american species and pay close attention next time I catch one. Yes, as far as I can tell, they are the exact same as the ones back home. Here they're even called American catfish...bagre americano. Pintado are a separate species from the red-tailed catfish. Pintado are native to drainages in southern Brazil (Pantanal and down into Argentina). Red-tailed catfish ar
  2. Today I avenged my broken favorite rod by catching two of these slimy, powerful little devils! As some of you will remember, I only had bad luck when it came to catching this fish: broken rods, snapped line, etc. The trick to catching them wasn't force (since it would really take some heavy gear to pull one of these out of their burrow...even then, its mouth would probably tear before loosening its grip). The trick was to get them to come out of the hole. This was something I wasn't able to do earlier, partly because I didn't think it'd be so hard to pull one out once hooked. Well, after enou
  3. Oops. That sounds like it would do the trick. I'd be happy to borrow it if you'd flip the bill for overseas shipping. No, just kidding, I don't think it's feasible. Thanks for the offer though. Hah, even better! I definitely will. Their name roughly translates to "mucousy." Supposedly they produce a lot of slime when threatened, so I think unhooking will be far from easy. One website suggested using steel wool to hold on to them (when rigging them as bait). I'd like to take another shot at catching one this week. I'll report any success.
  4. My fox trekker 12' 2.75 lb snapped last week while playing a powerful fish... You might imagine a large fish, but you'd be wrong. I think the english name for this fish is South American swamp eel (Synbrachus marmoratus), but around here it goes by a couple different names: muçum, pirambóia...a few others. It is a brownish/olive colored eel-like fish that breathes air and lives in holes dug into the bank. I have been trying to catch one of these at a local lake for quite some time. I first discovered their presence by accident while dangling my bait in the water before casting-out. This fish w
  5. I caught this tilapia last week on the fly, and I was actually a little disappointed in the fight considering it was a big one (granted, I am outstretching my arms).
