Winter fishing is very popular in Buenos Aires. Hundreds of anglers can be found on the city's waterfront in anticipation of a large haul. After all, for many people fishing is not just a hobby but a source of food. From the shore, one can search for dorados (golden fish), piranhas, or wolf fish. If you want to fish on board motor boats, you have a chance to catch carp, mojarras, catfish, and kingfish. But most of all fans of winter fishing can be found on the many lagoons near the city. There you can fish not only from the shore but also by boat.
