Fishing in Sarandí breakwater jetty

The Sarandí jetty was built around 1905, back when the country was young and confident. Maritime traffic was tremendous (there was no Panama Canal at the time). The breakwater is essential for the harbor. It is also a nice walk if you like waterscapes. Tourism is not flocking there yet.

In the weekend that I visited, a veteran fisherman was preparing his home-made line in the sun and wind. These are the guys that know the fish, the wind and the best bait.

I did not see any catch in a few throws.

Farther down the jetty there was activity with more typical hardware. The large rocks are good standing points for throwing, but you have to be careful.

The entrance to the jetty was remodeled some time ago. Then a few storms came in, and did some damage to the easy-access section with its nice rounded shape.

Thanks for looking!
