We reached out to 15 of the country’s top guides and pros—you know, the guys who get paid to reel in largemouths, smallmouths, trout, crappie, cats, walleyes, striped bass, and more—and asked them about what they rely on most to catch big fish come some. Here are their answers. You’d better clear room in your tackle box.

1. Bomber Badonk-A-Donk SS

“My go-to for nighttime tarpon in the summer is Bomber’s Badonkadonk SS,” says Captain Robert Trosset, a Florida tarpon captain. “It sinks slowly and has a really natural action underwater when you start twitching.

Where to fish in Malaysia / Hartamas / fishmalaysia.com PB haven

Yes folks its partially official. We have introduced the first batch of PB’s to the small lake we found in Hartamas.

This morning after about 4 days in the holding tank on my porch there was one dead PB in the tank. This brought my number down from six to five. Not wanting to hesitate the transfer process any longer I put the remainder PB into the transport tank.

My transport tank is a black bin bought from Old Town Market. There is a whole which I melted on the lid to allow the Betta battery powered pump’s air nozzle to go through.20130312_092545

Whats available in Paramount Garden. Caught so far…

Hi all,

Here’s  couple of pics of animals caught in paramount garden. I use the word animals as I did not just only land fish. Believe it or not the first thing i veer caught with my bait-caster was a clam. Here are some pics.

The first ever thing i caught with my bait-caster. I threw it back anyways!

The "Ah Pek" swore to god that h was fishing for prawn and it was his  "misfortune" that he landed this.

The second picture does suggest that there is a healthy population of peacock in the lake. This juvenile suggests so. I am yet to see anyone land anything larger so far.

Tonight i will be looking for a good sized one. There is another theory of mine that this population has been introduced. I also have my sights set on my nemesis the monster toman that got away.

I did get a quick glimpse of him quite recently. Mistook his head to be that of a turtle.

For those of you in PJ and you enjoy fishing. Please visit this park.
