Calumpit, Bulacan Haruan

Just north of Manila is Bulacan a province filled with fishponds, ricefields and waterways. In other words Haruan heaven. Acting on a tip by one of the storekeepers of SEVENSEAS tackleshop, I drove to one of the northernmost towns, Calumpit. As it was an afternoon trip my forays were limited to roadside spots.

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....
