It been a week i not touching my fishing rod... i'm quiet busy with the school's work. Around 7am my nephew and i casting at Sungai Bangat.
My nephew trying to cast at shallow weedy areas
Unexpectedly the water was murky .The water level drops significantly , based on my experience the Haruan here will move from its cozy homes in he shallow weedy areas to the open water . Today i'm using Surecatch Froggy F22 ( glow /6.25cm/14g ).I cast the Froggy to the open water after seen some bubbles ...suddenly ...Pop!!..someting strike my lure ,the fish jumped once...confirming that it was a Haruan .It still tried heading for snag but it was becoming tired and able to kept from reaching the snag . Yehooo..finaly i cought 400grm Haruan .

7pm...cast with Mr Ridzuan near the Kinabenua Water gate
I found small drain near the water gate...my saliva immediately dripped . But i didn't harbour any high hope..it was alredy late, after 3 cast with Surecatch Froggy ( Glow ) , i had the first hit...the fish jumped!
Yehooo!!...I cought 500grm haruan using Surecatch Froggy ( Glow ).
To friends out there asking me some tips about haruan bite,here some tips i take from Rod and Line magazine...there two types of haruan takes the bait . First , it's the hit and run style . Once you feel a load while retrieve your bait with a long stretch af bubbles folowing suit in your bait area . Usually,the fish already hooked .
Secondly , you can feel a gentle tap on the bait and a round of bubble surfacing at your bait area . You have two options , either give it strong yank or you can wait a little bit longer while pulling the bait slowly and strike when you feel a slightly heavier pull .
I normally opt for the first option because the appearance of the bubbles means that it has opened its mouth and mouthed the bait. Also,it's more exciting ti see the haruan and jump , compared to wait and strike!
