How to do night fishing at ORTO Fishing Paradise Bottle Tree Park?

Made a few trips to ORTO Fishing Paradise (formerly Bottle Tree Park) during the heightened alert and found it quite relaxing and entertaining especially since "SNA" was involved. I mean who on earth plucks out his rod holder together with his rod when the fishes take the bait. 

What's the best bait at Orto? Over the past few trips, we reviewed this and it was quite obvious that the fishes there love live bait. However, if your live bait is lampan, that's a bonus. Size must not be too big or too small and just right. Kinda like Goldilocks and the Three Bears. 

Some tips at Orto. Hook sizes must be big at minimum 7/0 to be able to properly secure the bait and ensure hook up. Surprise though, we dropped some barramundi aka KBL on rubber lures during the trip.

Anyway, I still don't enjoy the fight of the fishes here. What I like is how the fishing is similar to live baiting for toman and sailfish. Opening the bail arm, letting the line go out and closing the bail and finally setting the hook. That's the thrill...

Have you been to Orto? What's your review?
