Fishing in Peru – Agua Salada

This is done along the vast Pacific coast of Peru, and is divided into two types: coastal fishing, either from the beach or cliffs, and on a boat. Fishing on the beaches is the most common form in Peru. Species like flounder, croaker and grunt are the best catches along the sandy beaches of the central coast and southern Peru.

Crags fishing as defined by the blog ( is carried out along the coast, and fishermen just need a rock to throw the hook. The species caught are hoarse, bass rocks and local species such as cherlo, tramboyo and pintadilla. In both areas, fishermen tend to use as bait the tiny crustaceans called Very Muys living in the sand, clams and snails.

You fish from the back of the boat is also divided into two types: pinteo, or fishing from a boat anchored; and trolling, launched a moving. Pinteo fishing along the central south coast and usually captures the same varieties as fishing cliff, adding cuskeel, sea bass and smooth hounds in the north. Trolling, meanwhile, it is usually done on the north coast with artificial bait, catching tuna, black marlin and local species such as cherela, agujilla, saw, pen and parakeet.
