Bongam Lake (Again!)

We decided to head back to Bongam for some fun on a Sunday. Both a fun aspect and a problematic aspect of this lake is it’s absolutely ridden with those tiny little fish. Your bobber is constantly shooting up and down with bites, but more often than not, it’s the little fish swarming your bait.

However, it was great practice in detecting the bite and the right time to yank the rod, as well as the proper wrist-flick to hook the fish.

We caught well over a dozen little fish this day, but unfortunately no big bites, so it was a catch and release sort of day.

However, I did come across this beautiful chub with its blue stripes out and shining for the mating season. I haven’t come up with a freshwater fish this pretty until today.

 A fun day overall with a lot of good technical practice.
