Chronology of events

Mr. DHL sent me a text message asking me if I wanted to go fishing tonight. The thing is, the both of us haven't been doing any fishing for the past one month, as we were both very busy. Navin was busy with his sister's wedding arrangement, and I was busy with my sister's engagement arrangements. Navin told me that the pond near his house had recently been stocked up with fish. 100 plus kilo of baungs, rohus and patins.

I arrived at Taman Desa. As usual, out fishing NEVER seems to start on time. Navin had just got back from work and I had to wait for him to get ready.

Arrived at the pond. After buying our bait, we proceeded to one corner of the pond. This pond is not too big. Not recommended to use rods that are too long. I used a light tackle for this trip. Shakespeare rod paired with Abu Garcia Cardinal 302 reel spooled with 17lb mono line. Weight was a small ball sinker. Hook that I used was a Mustad size 1 circle hook.

There were small nibbles here and there. Must the baby lampams and baby tilapias disturbing my weight. Suddenly my rod tip twitched. I thought a small fish must be disturbing my bait. Then it happened..!!! My rod tip took a dip. I might have over reacted a bit. Since I was using a circle hook, there was no need for me to strike my rod too hard. I guess in my excitement, I gave my rod a firm strike. The fight didn't last long. Less than 5 minutes.

Both of us decided to call it a day. Working day tommorow.

Arrived home. Damn fish was still alive. Bought 2 bags of ice from 7-Eleven and placed it in the cooler box with the fish.
