Spooning Away ...

Monday 14 February 2011 0 comments

Assalamualaikum and 안 녕! Got up early yesterday morning with TK to T-Junction breakwaters. Lost a lot of cods on my SP and only managed to catch just one. Not many fish biting at the area as we noticed there were many mullets swimming about. As the sun was blazing right above our heads, it was time for us to take a break for lunch. After filling our bellies with "nasi penyet", we wasted no time resuming the 2nd half of casting. The location was at "Lubok seluarku basah & pipe tagar". I was curious with the splashing around the small lagoon and thought it might be Tarpon bushing around. Since it was hot and the sun was shinning brightly, a spoon was perfect for this type of situation. Threw a few cast, and bam! a first strike. My first thought was a Tarpon but when it got closer, it was a Snakehead. I was quite delighted and threw more cast at the same spot and strike another one, slightly bigger than the first. I have an Abu Island spoon hiding somewhere in my tackle box and thought it was the right time to use it. First cast with Abu Island spoon, a decent size Snakehead willing to take the bait, followed by another one a few cast later. The sun was about to set, and the spoon weren't as affective as before, so it was time to call it a day. Lastly I'd like to say, "Selamat Menyambut Maulud Nabi, Selawat dan Salam keatas Nabi junjungan kita Nabi Muhammad SAW".

NOTE: Total Snakeheads caught was 4. Released 2 Snakeheads and also release the cod as they were too small for dinner. Hehe
