Freshwater Luring October 2011

I have been busy fishing most weekends. Recently, me and my kakis are very into freshwater luring for Toman (Snakehead), Peacock Bass and Temensis. We typically bash deep into the river system and fish along the perimeter of the system as we go and find fishes.

It is a joy to go deep into our local catchment areas in search of these fishes. In the process, we get a good exercise and get to see local wildlife like the Pangolin, Owls and numerous monitor lizards.... good stuff! It's highly addictive stuff and kinda great to be doing this since modern day society plagues us with work, the computers and the TV! Give me the great outdoors anytime ;)

Here are a few pictures that i've put together during a few trips... most of the trips are short luring catches that we had while we lured along the catchment area premises... we finally found a good old spot that we are planing to do a 2D1N camping and freshwater luring expedition...

Parangs, mess tins, a good old fire, hammocks and bbq fish! it'll be fun but we must be prepared!!!

Cheers everyone and enjoy the pictures!
