Weekend Frogging Day 5: Chocolate Land

Made a trip down to the ol' haruan hole today and i hoped the recent rains might induce better/worse action. No worries on the outcome... It was more of the thrills of observation. When walking into the area, i saw a mother wild boar. A big black fierce one... Seeing something so big and huge staring down at you was definitely a different experience from the TV or from a distance. I had brush encounters with wild boars before but this mama stared down at me and refused to budge. I slowly backed away out of her sight and observed from far. The mama paused before somehow signalling to the rest of her pack. A few babies came out and they disappeared into the forest cover as fast as they could. When i reached the area, i was shocked... First signs of waterlogged terrain in a few weeks! I managed to get out of the waterlogged area and proceed to the casting point. Wow... Where i was standing at and landing my fish a few weeks back was now water! The water had extended a metre or two

Weekend Frogging Day 4: Usual Frog Action

On a good sunday morning, the famous Alan Chan and the gang to the haruan heaven and boy was it full of action in the morning. The moment Alan reach, he almost instantly hooked up a good around 4lbs Haruan on his scum frog. Wow... The next was me to land one haruan around 4lbs too on my yellow scum frog but sadly when i was laying it out for photo shoot, the bugger flipped and squirmed across the grass and got into the water!!! Wow damn i should have used the boga but later the haruan swim away with boga how..kekeke... I later on also missed a small haruan on the trusty SC. Damn! Ah Hwa cast at the same spot i miss later on and he too missed a hit but he got one hooked up but too bad the haruan dive into the weeds and escape with a splash and jump. Kekeke Ah Hwa miss some other takes on scumfrog too... Later roger and momok joined us and roger hit 1 haruan and toman on his daiwa spoon... Momok registered a hit but too bad the came off after awhile... Kekeke... Weiyee had zero take a

Personal Best Haruan

God knows what's with me and haruan these few trips. I can't seem to hook up any bobo shooter tomans but instead i'm scoring it with their more elusive counter parts.  I started bashing in at around 0630 hrs. Boy was it spooky... There were so many weird noises in the bushes today. I thought i heard wild boars. Luckily, they were'nt hostile and i continued bashing in with the fear of getting bitten by snakes always there. I had already put in place a plan should i be bitten. This was thought up the night before because i couldn't sleep! I was only going to concentrate on the good ol area today. I now call it the Haruan breeding paradise. Hahaha... I could already hear splashes and boofs in the water. Oh boy... Proceeded to cast at my vantage point which i had not land anything from yet! How come its a favourite spot you will think... That's because i missed so many bobo tomans here on surface chugs. I decided to go big today and clipped on a Pink Surface c

Haruan Fishing and Recce Fishing Spot for Bujuk

After yesterday's joy, i could not say no to another outing... Not after i couldnt sleep at night! Made my way to the spot and oh my the water was super greenish today. Casted about and tried all ways to get the fishes but the fishes were rising furiously as usual. Got sick of the spot and decided to go on a suicide mission... Bash Ka Bash! During bashing, its hard to remember what you see and what you thought. Time went so fast and i just remembered bashing deep into the area, exploring many enticing spots and making a few casts here and there. I came across a number of promising spots including a water hyacinth infested deep water area. Pity though, instead of tomans, i spotted Giant PBs around the 2-3kg range giving the Tomans a run for their money. Tomans come up for AIR. Well... I saw a Toman come up for air and a giant PB pouncing on the poor fish. A total of 3 consecutive hits on the toman and god knows what happened to it. The lily and hyacinth pads were too far out to

Good Sized Haruans (Snakeheads) On Lure

Yesterday was my last day of school and i could not miss the chance to go frogging the next day! I was already super itchy. So i reach the spot very early and walk in when it was still dark and i almost drop into a hole. Hahahaha... I brought only 4 lures today. Before setting off, i realise i had no more minnows as i sold off alot of my lures so i have no choice i decided to grab mondo's gift and see if i can land anything on it. And i realised that the lure action is great and the casting is good too. It flew pretty far! Oh ya, i reached the first area of the spot and this is where i miss most of my mamma during the previous trips. I clipped on a pop froggie and wow omg the moment my lure hit the water, a mama toman rose up to whack it. But the mama missed and i was left with a floating froggie!!! I tried and tried at the same spot but no more takers... Seems like the fishes are spooked. So i moved on to the second area and this time i saw a small ripple just in front of me
