The alternative lake? (Day 3)

The day following the 'not so good' weekend in Air Kuning didn’t go well either. Weather wise, it was more or less the same as the day before. We left Air Kuning in search of greener pastures. Or least, that was our plan. We tried fishing at one of the lakes in the nearby town of Batu Gajah. In terms of finding a suitable spot to launch the boat, this is actually one of the best. In terms of fishing, although there were rises all over the lake, sadly they were not the peacock bass species were looking for. Most of them were sucker fish, featherback, carps and others as spotted by my fishing partner for that particular weekend. Size wise, this particular lake in Batu Gajah is not a big one. If we fish fast, we could have easily covered the lake within 2 hours or so. We checked the lake through and through but came back empty handed. We covered the stumps, inlets and the lilies and left no spots untouched. Strangely, there wasn’t even a single bite. In all, the conditions weren’t as good as the lakes in Air Kuning. Would I come back to fish this lake in the future? Not unless if I have lots of time to spare.

Nope, still no takers here. Same old story...
