A pity the big one got away, but I always look at it as a motivation to come back again another day to win the fight. ;) You should invest in a lure retriever or make one yourself, it will ease your pocket a little in the long run.

Good job on landing more Haruans, I'm sure they'll see plenty more of you in this school holiday. :lol:

Your fishing adventures just keep getting better and better. :D That must be the mommy haruan, good for you for releasing it back. I ever caught an arowana using a minnow, so I think what you're using now should probably work too. Perhaps it was spooked by your presence, they can see pretty well what's going on above water.

arh long time no post cos why? LONG TIME NO KENNA haruans . Idk why but the haruans seems to be really weary now especaially the biggies but netheless! Here is the results for e past 3 weeks!!!

1st guy , never really believed that topwater is gonna get haruans at my spot but becos i tried everything else but failed hmm rig up this walk e dog lure cast jerk jerk jerk wham!!!
Image
look at the size of e fish and the lure wow this guy must be hungry arh~

2nd guy really funny, i have been using alot of bait ranging from live frogs to lures but never did i expect i would get a haruan on bread!? actualy there shld be 2 but oh well lost the other one that took e bread it was a biggie too
Image

3rd guy. Pretty good learning experince. I HAVE NEVER EVER GET A Fish on rubber lures like never...
but after luring with a friend , decided to pick some rubbers .Went to test cast jerk jerk pause 5 secs jerk jerk pause 5 sec then suddenly a weight. Straight away set e hook fish on la . Even though a smallie but still a haruan! Shld be 2 de but fail to set the hook nicely on the ohter guy seem like a biggie too =(
