Hi guys,
I recently got into freshwater fishing and I can only seem to get peacock bass on lure and 1 giant snake head only. Cant seem to get any other fish.
Any suggestion on what bait or lure to use to get other fish cause i am a little bit bored of peacock bass le. thanks!

There's also soon hock that takes lures but better effective with baits such as small fishes or worms. There's also belida but are also more effective with organic baits. Tinfoil barbs should be on the challenge list as well and they take bread. If you're only interested in freshwater, you can also try going to commercial fish pond like the one at Khatib Bottle Tree Park. There are several species of freshwater game fishes you can get there. And of course, you may want to venture into saltwater as well.
