It's probably the spot you're fishing has conducive factors make them stay and breed there, or are you using some kind of unique bait? :p Those are very nice catches, I see 3 different kinds of croakers in it.

Fishingboy: thanks bro. It's all inshore results..

Peace: I also think the same, maybe they breed there. Or else my unique bait attract them. Hahaha.. Within 10 min I get the 3 croakers in tamban hook like previous time. 3 in 1 again.. ;p

Nice catch there fishermanfriends ! :thumbsup:
Those croakers are very nice eating fish.
Keep them alive in keep nets and you heard them croaks like frog when you lift them out of water.

Hey ... I think the last 2nd fish with elongated body from bottom is a jew fish.
Does it has two sharp fangs like vampire ?
If it has ... then it's a jew fish.
Can grow till pretty big size.

From bottom, 2nd fish, ya I saw the fangs. It's quite sharp too but I manage to take out the hook from the mouth. :)

fishermanfriends, catching catfish often might also be because of the rig you are using and the how you present your bait. is it that the hook with the bait is resting on the bottom? if yes, this might be the reason why you keep catching catfish

no wonder hahas cos catfish are bottom feeders. since your bait is near the bottom it is normal that you will catch alot of catfish ;) hope to see more pics and posts coming in!
