Ilha Cagarra, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Fishing off of Ipanema BeachAs if amazing beaches, parties, food and football wasn't enough, was surprised to learn of some great fishing just off of Ipanema Beach. The islands clustered together just off the shore are known as the Cagarras, and they are all fish magnets. If you get lucky your work will pay off with bluefish in excess of 10 pounds. And if the currents are right during December and January, dorado come in, cruising just beyond the islands.
