Pantanal Escapes

Discover Brazil's Wild Wonderland

This video, from the sixth season of River Monsters, shows professional angler Jeremy Wade taking on a large-sized Dorado below a dam on the frontier between Argentina and Uruguay. In this program, Jeremy Wade follows the story of several attacks on humans by these large fierce fighting fish. This location below the dam, with its rough churning water, is a favoured hunting ground for the Dorado. Dorado are also a favoured fish for anglers in the Pantanal, and a target species for fishing lodges and fishing tours.
