Forest snakehead on stickbait

The water level has been pretty low lately but I went for try anyway. The peacock bass retreated to deeper ends while the snakeheads widens their playground. I saw 4 snakeheads today; 1 toman, 1 haruan and two forest snakeheads. I hooked up one and another threw its hook at arm's reach. The toman acted really timid, it came out from its cover to check out my stickbait and dashed away. :confused: It's a pity forgot to bring my video cam with me today, somehow I knew it meant catching something interesting. :rant:

Well it was quite aggressive going after the stickbait after it missed on the first hit but fight wise I didn't feel much of it, probably because my drag was set rather high. I usually does so when I use stickbaits or poppers as they can accomodate more beefy hooks compared to crankbaits. It can be real troublesome when a fish manages to steer its way into weeds or branches in the water, and that's where they usually hide. ;)

I've replied to your thread regarding this, take a look. With regards to Forest snakeheads, they're quite similar to haruans except they stay very close to forest streams and seldom venture out into open reservoirs.
