You're doing great, learning more and more about the fish you're hunting for. It's always good to try different methods and baits to see for yourself how effective they are rather than just simply agreeing with what other anglers uses. That's how one angler eventually outfishes another. :shh:

Haruans do learn, they do take bread but they won't go for it again after tasting it. They grab at first suspecting that it could be a meal but they won't go for it anymore after a try or two. I've tested feeding haruans in artificial ponds and in the wild, they do take it on first encounter. :lol:

Very nice catch and thanks for sharing it with us again.

The hook on biggie must have been a pretty exciting run, too bad you don't get to see it. I guess the one who eventually gets hooked is you! :lol:

GUESS WHAT I am Hooked! went again to FP BUT THIS TIME bomb rig only ~ went to FP in the timing where fishes starts to bite . Went there set up and the staff there helped me on my first bomb rig .Cast~~~~
Alright put at the rod stand set the drag and wait...After like 5 mins my rod tip was like twich twich~ then straight short burst of line zzzzzz. Went to set the hook and reel back ehhh light lei..... no fight it turned out to be a small barb then is released quickly while i set my next bomb rig . Waited for 10 mins? some action on the rod tip already hmmmmm wait for it wait for it... ZZZZZZZZ the rod bend woohoo big one big one i set and started pumping , it was rather heavy thou this one but only little run not much of a fight.after like 4 mins of pumping the head of the fish surfaced .WOW damn its a big walking cat uhhh ~~

Looks like you and your friend will be camping at FP this holiday. :lol: Your catch is getting better, I can see why you're willing to get soak in the rain to fish. Don't do that in a heavy storm though! Good work on trying out your own kng recipe, looking at your catch you may have knead up some good stuff there. Great catches and story, thanks for sharing it with us once again. Is there a picture of your friend with his catfish?
