Bruce and Ana from the Netherlands is in Malaysia on holiday and decided to try a day of peacock bass fishing. In a perfect world, fish will be biting every time we hit the waters. Unfortunately things don’t always work out as planned and fishing was tough that day. Bruce managed one fish in the earlier part of the day while there was a few misses.
The day was very hot most of the time and with an afternoon thunderstorm looming overhead, we decided to end the day’s fishing a little earlier as the lightnings over the horizon makes fishing a nervous affair.
I hear Bruce will be headed to South America, I hope he catches some nice peacock bass there.
While it is not always possible, I do recommended to overnight at one of the hotels near the fishing spots. Fishing then can start early to catch the dawn bites and anglers will be fresh for the day’s fishing. You also the luxury of resting back in the hotel during the hot midday section where fishing is usually slow anyway. You can then be out fishing again late afternoon to catch the dusk bite sessions. Two days or more fishing can act as a contingency and increases the chances of catching some good fish, makes sense if you traveled a long way to catch fish.
