Fat Haruan of Calumpit. Had four strikes but only one landed.
I only got to fish the flooded plots near the roads. Locals told me that i should hit the fishponds which were loaded with big haruan. Next time....

Not only Haruans!
Knifefish by Miks Solon
Alex caught this 5 kilo Barra on my reinforced spinnerbait too!
Big Tilapia are predators too!
A variety of lures allows me to work the water from top to bottom.

All caught on SPRO frogs! I usually release fish i catch immediately but for a photo's sake i kept them and released them after.

ounce spinnerbaits available in three colors.
BCR - Black/Copper/red
WYR - White/Yellow/Red
-The 1/4 ounce jig has a 1/0 ultrasharp tempered hook.
-Durable, extremely reflective synthetic fibers make up the skirt material.
- Stainless steel hardwire frame can handle big fish.
- Ken craft #5
- Smooth turning crane swivel and micro splitring( less snagging).
This is the size i use in
Great for casting over shallow reefs, mangroves and river mouths.
Made for largemouth bass both shallow and deep.
It's a great lure for Island Cove predators and other bathtubs.
Good for large (1 kilo+) dalag when they're deep and not hugging the shallows.
I make each spinnerbait by hand and test their swim in my fishtank. These lures are designed to catch fish not fishermen.
You can trim the skirt and add a trailer or tail.
Php 140 each
Please specify color.

The place has a couple spots to cast to...
Dalag are present though i only caught one. You can also catch Tilapia, kanduli (catfish), knifefish and other freshwater fish. Plecosthumus (armoured catfish) are abundant and considered a pest.
Renting a boat would be a good option to get to other spots.
I lost all my good pictures of GT's caught while trolling and casting so this will have to do.
Casting topwaters over a shallow reef brings on nice surprises
I caught this grab bag in subic while shorecasting .
When it comes to eating, kings are king! The guy holding the fish is Fernando, my buddy boatman from Iba, Zambales.
These are threadfin salmons commonly known as Mamali. I use topwaters especially walk the dogs and spoons to catch them. Nothing beats topwaters when it comes to excitement! These mamali are real fighters making long runs punctuated by wild jumps. I use 20lb. braid on my abus with a 6.5ft. rod which is the most comfortable setup for the walk the dog technique.
Had several strikes in the short time i was there, only one hooked up! What looks like solid ground is actually all floating vegetation.
Used a heavy (5/8's ounce) Sumo frog to get through the duckweed.
Had a big one slam the frog, dive then jump up three feet before spitting out the lure. Left me paralyzed in surprise!!!

The fish weren't biting that day except for this guy who blasted my SPRO frog as it was passing a tree trunk. The fight was surprisingly long for a dalag and at one point I actually thought it might be something else.
