Sardon's Bass Conquest

MINI FUN TRIVIA! Can you SPOT THE HELLO KITTY in every pic?

The long awaited sky dew came down on a Sunday night as a very deprived dark lord and his minion pondered over their fishing on Monday morning. The dark lord had went to the prawn village but found it hard to take back any slaves. Retribution was due... today.

We thought that we would meet early today but Taufik's law struck again but we were still within the golden time. We brushed away fallen branches and galloped to the forbidden spot. The land of the "Ang Mo"... The spot being called the Ang Mo Spot simply because we saw an Ang Mo luring there. There were no foreign talent today but there were definitely fish today.

The journey to the spot was quite spectacular as the heavy downpour the night before drove mists and vapor out of the forest onto the water. The misty effected was created and the sun cast a delightful gaze on god's creation.

The fishes seem to be very active after last night's rain. I had Peacock Bass as small as my minnow chasing and attacking the lure! The dark lord and me tried luring for a few minutes while out of nowhere, a school of red fledgling fries emerged from their hideout... along them was their mama... and 3 GOURAMIS?!?! Yes 3 Gouramis!!! An Orange and two Blacks. They were tailing the fries. Pity though... the fries swam into the depths with the Gouramis before we could get more than 3 casts... It was the first time i encountered schooling Gouramis, Toman Fries and Toman Mamas!

Sardon was hitting Peacocks like no tomorrow.... Up down left right everywhere! There seemed to be a flock of Bass here...


Torturing his captives and releasing them back... The wonder they say you will need to apply for license soon...

I concentrated on fast retrieval and got my dessert when i got a good take. Initially, Peacock Bass came to my mind but as i was fighting the fish, i got a glimpse of it... A TOMAN?! It was a small one probably around a kilo range but fought very aggressively... It got away though as i brought it in too fast...

Awhile later, before the downpour, a HUGE black Gourami was spotted cruising the beard trees... It cruised lazily... leaving me and the dark lord aghast. The Orange and Black Gouramis returned soon after but they did not do anything except have a quick look and sniff at Momok's rubber.

Off to greener pastures we went... a spot that we found held resident Peacock Bass. Schools of PB and sometimes Temensis linger here. The only thing is that they don't grow big here. Ah well, little villagers better than no villagers! We had fun at this spot... having many hits and misses.
