530pm..my nephew , my friend and i cast at my secret pond.The pond is quite weedyand snaggy ,which provide the necessary shelters againt constans human harrasment , as well as for the fish spawn and breed healthily .Today i'm using Abu Garsia Black Max baitcast + Seahawk Rinji Medium Heavy rod + 50lb Power Pro braided line...the braided line had to be thick and strong to hunt snakehead in snaggy water .
I cast more than 10 minutes ..get lot of strikes but no hook up..than i try cast right into a snaggy spot , then move the Seahawak mini frog up and down ( i call it Haruan jigging technique )...Pop!!!...i get strike!...Yehooo...i cought 300grm Haruan .

I discovered a small canal on Google Earth and it seemed to be good Haruan casting . The good thing is ,it is not too far from my school .
As i approached the flooded grassy areas the water meandered its way between the grassy patches . casting the Seahawk mini frog next to grassy patch , i retrieved the Seahawak Mini frog...almost immediately its disappeared with vicious splash..."Pop"!!!...Yehooo!!...i cought 300grm Haruan .
Haruan of this size is very aggressive
Thank for good fight!!...Mr Channa Striatus

" The grass is always greener on the other side of field " This santence always haunts me when i do land - based fishing . The unsatisfactory feeling and sense of adventure always makes anglers venture deeper and deeper to faraway .That why..today around 540pm...my friend and i cast at new spot near Sungai Keling village
Haruan heaven...with lots of weeds and murky water , today i'm using Seahawk Rinji rod, Abu Garsia Black Max baitcast and my favourite lure to hunt snakehead...Seahawk mini frog
As we arrived , there wee subtle splashes , sounds of 'pop'by the weeds ...cast the lure near the weeds..get six strikes but no hook up. I cast for seven time near the weeds..'plup'...get strike and immediately feel a strong pull on the rod . I fought the fish with brute force...Yehooo!!!..i cought 1.0 kg Haruan
