Folks its been a fun filled week. I have a new pet and we have seen some amazing skill. Here are some visuals to help aid the weekends fishing process.
Not as dramatic as the title is. We humble fishermen have to work hard in freshwater to land a bite! I caught a catfish though!
Fishing knows no prejudice. Anyone can fish. Old or young; slim or burly; dark or fair. In this case its this dark, middle-aged and burly gentleman who put my tech to shame (not so high tech as a matter of fact).
This guy’s setup dates back to the cradle of civilization. He was using a twig, some line and a hook. No reel, no bails, heck not even a swivel. His knots were horrendous to be frank. Presentation is not his forte.
Yet he caught more fish than me.
Here’s one that he caught. Biggest tilapia so far I’ve seen in Taman Aman.
No big ones during this period. I caught myself a Marble Goby. Rescued one of my tomans from an angler. The poor thing is still a baby and these dimwits still go after it. I keep telling all the anglers there. If you come across it, let it go. We need good sport fish in the waters.
Here are some of the catches we made from last night’s trip to mines.
Apparently our usual fishing spot which is next to the golf course is a no go zone. According to a guard that was posted there. So no fishing there for some time.
The guard added that its been like that for nearly a month already. Sounds like some misfits must have caused problems. I did notice from our day trip there the last time a good part of the fence broken. Shame on shitty Malaysian attitude.
However to appease our need to fish we sought a solution nearby…
Here’s the haul.
Catch and release session from A’famosa today! more pics and videos on the scale of fishing available there.
Hint! Predators galore!
Hail Caesar for taking this sucker in!
