The bite rate was very low from the morning till afternoon. But at around 1.30pm, the bite rate increased as we moved 2 miles into the Philippine border. Bigger fish began to attack us with some of us encountered broken lines.

Electricity port again

Went to the electricity port again today with Barth and Jepp. Tried out my new Abu Garcia Promax BC and Daiwa Megaforce 8-17lbs with 20lbs braided line in this port but there were only a few strikes and no hook up at all. It's quite interesting actually casting with BC. The cast is further compare to my Shimano Navi 2000 reel and Venom rod with 8lbs mono line. Anyway, it was quite hard at first. The setting is very important to determine the distance of the cast.

Due to the snakehead's medicinal value, it was taken back home :).

electricity port

Went to cast for snakehead again today with Jepp from 3.00-5.00pm in a forbidden area which we called the electricity port. We've never tried the spot before as it is a forbidden area. Lucky for us as there was no one there that time. The spot looked promising. Like usual, there were a lot of strikes but no solid hook up. I only managed to get 1 hook up.
Lucky for me, as I managed to land this snakehead on my first cast. The fight was awesome.

Used my spinner bait and there were a lot of strikes. One of the snakeheads there successfully spoilt my day by spoiling my favourite spinner bait.

'Roundabout' port

After not having the chance to go fishing for the past 2 months, yesterday (Saturday), Jepp and I planned to go to Berhala Island to hunt for GT and table sized grouper. Unluckily the trip was canceled at the very last minute due to the boatman's miscalculation on the sea level.
So, here we were hunting for snakehead at the 'roundabout' port this evening. There were a lot of strike but no hookup. Only Jepp managed to land a 300g snakehead. I almost forgot how to cast and I've got problem to adapt to my Shimano Navi 2000 reel and Venom rod.

The promising 'roundabout' port.

Not my day, will hunt for snakehead again before my Kretam's trip on the 16 September 2010.
