We began our first Brazilian fishing trip by driving further into Central Brazil to a place called Lago Verde with a group of Embassy coworkers. With a quick stop at a roadside stand, we made the journey in about 3 and a half hours. After checking in and renting some fishing gear, we had our poles in the artificial lake and caught (and released) several small fish. Following a dinner break, we tried nightfishing for catfish for the first time. We didn't catch any catfish, but at midnight, Alex hooked a 26 pound tambaqui that took 30 minutes to reel in.
The next day, we were back at it, and caught a few more small fish. In the late afternoon, a huge rainstorm hit, driving us to return home.
