Peacock Bass @ Secret Spot

 At 0730 hrs, i received a call from Momok...

"Fishing Ai Mai? Same old place", he said

I sort of rebuffed the earlier invitation as i had just finished my duty and was well... not very sober. Minutes later, i passed by the spot on the bus and saw a familiar presence. That guy was on the way to the spot and that sparked off whatever doubts i had.

I got home quickly and got changed... dumping my Nasi Lemak into my haversack. I got a few bottles of drinks from the 711 and i was set. The catch? I was without my rod. You don't do a 24 hour duty and go fishing afterward. It's only human that i was just going there to see the guys in action and maybe have some Kopi later.

I arrived by the backdoor and spotted the familiar presence. Both had satisfied looks on their faces like they had just been laid. Roger had that senile yet evil smile which always accompanied him while Momok had that reserved look like something bad was going to happen. After some probing, it was revealed that they had easily hit double digits in landings. Roger had even missed a big Temensis it seems. Soon, Roger passed me his poison and "cajoled" me to cast a few times. I swear every time he does this, he means to poison or show you something...

I was casting with a rather slow action rod. One that locks up slowly but very strongly. It takes a little more attention to respond to the fish with this rod. He passed me a secret weapon which was a white haired fly with red eyes. I clipped it on and started the usual "fly fishing"... Now, Momok was the one with THE LOOK.

Awhile later... i hit one Peacock Bass which took my fly on the way up. The fish rose to the fly and i set the hook. While the rod locked, the fish tried to run but it failed to take out much line. The rod was doing all the fighting and i gave a blank stare at Roger.

Sardon's Bass Conquest


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...
