Last Trip Before My Exams - Temensis Party

It was high time that i went fishing with Vader again. The weather was breezy and cooling so we both went bashing fishing again. I went well prepared with 3 litres of drinking water, chocolate bars and bread. It was not required to move in early to fish at our destination as the wind and heat could not get into the waters there. We ran across the expressways and bashed uphill. Our original destination for the sebbies were abandoned due to construction and we moved to a rather bashed up spot.

I guess it's the last time we'll be there because what we saw shocked us. That place was overtaken by Temensis. This is the first time i have of Temensis in this water body... Looks like selfish anglers and groups have released them again... Sad to say... They will wipe out all other species in the water...

I was very shocked as i casted out a topwater scumfrog... A school of Temensis swarmed around it and it was gulped down! I gave it a tug and well... a Temensis came up. I was so busy catching them that i was trying every lure in my box. Almost every lure worked and i am now proud to say all my lures that day are not virgin anymore! After awhile i just stopped taking pictures haha.

There were big ones around bug there were simply too many small ones taking the lures. I saw the big ones cruising a few times. The big ones hunt alone along the bushes while the small ones swim around looking for food. I saw a jungle snakehead(Bujuk) too.

We bashed along the perimeter to fish and i later had a good tap on my lure by a thick lipped Temensis estimated 4lbs. It took my lure in its mouth and swam around but a quick strike threw my lure up into the air... and that was it!

I had a few small Temensis landed on rattling rapala too. It's easy to get them agitated. Just cast towards the area, let it sink and do violent twitches with the lure. The fish will hit when the lure is twitching on the way up. If i am using fly for the whole day, i guess i would have landed over 50 fishes... haha!

Vader got a nice greenie later on minnow... Good reward for a hard day's work!

Well, my exams are mid this month... I'll be busy with my exams hence no fishing. I'll be having a fish farm visit on the 17th though so check back then!

Happy Deepavali everyone!

Great report Nigel, I enjoyed the fact that you caught on every Lure, But those fish seem to be a good catch, Are they a preditor that kill everything in the water, Its a shame that people will put them in to do damage,
Good luck with your studies and exams Nigel, Hope everything goes well,

Yes Paddy they will be the dominant predator in the water(even snakeheads cant beat them) and there is no one to stop them except humans. Some people are just selfish and do not think about their impacts. Thinking of the native fishes that will perish saddens me. Anyway, im going fishing tonight! :D A last minute thing...
