    Peacock Bass!

    Post  lurer on Wed Jan 27, 2010 2:46 pm

    A kaki jio me for fishing today so off I went (I'll still go even if he didn't Razz )

    I landed 2 while kaki landed 2 to 3 pieces. 1st piece was from a fries couple while 2nd was from a hunting pack.

    Fight was so-so but the sight of them taking lures was thrilling.

    All released.

    Singapore is only this small, our fishing grounds are even smaller. Protect, not da-pao

    Nice peacockbass mate.. I've not gotten one for ages.
    Back then when LPR just open was the good old days.. We could easily get about 15-20 pieces in like a 3 hour session.

    Long gone are those days though Smile
    Nice to see your catches mate!!
    Keep it coming!

    6 tiny peacocks today! Absolutely no fight but boy are they feisty!

    Then spotted 2 haruans swimming away hastily in quick succession. Heheh, hiding something? Yes they do! I moved further down to ease their tension. They are very shy if they can see you. Started casting at them some distance away, can't see them so very tempted to move back to check but I resisted. They will swim away if they see me again.

    After a couple casts it looks like they are non-takers but suddenly 'BOOMZ!' YES!! that's how you do it! That's how you take a lure. Nice! It's been so long I felt a strong toman/haruan surface take.

    Rod bent and hookup seems good. However very quickly it dived into i guess one of it hiding place, a haversack!!! Crafty fish! My lure is now stuck onto the sack!!. A lot of mud/gravel were threw up so I can't see if the haruan was still hooked on. I waited a while and then felt a pull. Yes the fish is hooked onto my lure which is hooked onto the sack. By now, the mud/gravel had settled considerably so I can see the fish, mouth wide open body twisting to shake off the hook. I quickly reach for my lip grip but too late!! Just as I lower myself to grip it, it shook off!

    They are really sly crafty fish, Never landed one so far!! But I'm glad I got a explosive surface and my lure is still with me.

    All released.
