I wouldn't want to freeze my butt fishing in that temperature, kind of makes me appreciate the climate here. But then again, you probably wouldn't like the high humidity here either. :p

That looks like a big Haruan, and a fat one too. :D It's interesting to see one managed to grow to that size in a place that open and frequent by fishermen. Perfect reward for your 2 hours of non-stop luring! :thumbsup:

The catch ain't bad at all and the walking catfish is bigger than your leg! :D There truly must be something in your Kng recipe that makes you shine out in that crowd of anglers. :eyebrow: Thanks for sharing your catch report with us!
