FISH VALLEY, SEMENYIH – 1 MAY 2014
Fishyology.com would like to wish Happy Labor Day to all Malaysians. What better way to celebrate labor day then to go fishing with your buddies. After quite a successful outing last time in Fish Valley, Semenyih. We return to the pond determined to improve on the result by landing a Patin or other species. Since our outing takes place during public holiday, thus I do expect a lot of people would turn out at Fish Valley, Semenyih.
I was there around 2pm, while waiting for AG to arrive, I take a stroll around the pond and there is a lot people fishing today. Today we are using pallet 6363 plus sweet corn to add some sweet smell to our bait. On top of that, AG manage to find some palm oil seeds which is a great bait for Pacu. We cast off our bait and hope for the best :). The first few hours was intense and stressful fishing haha as we are the only group that did not manage to land any fish. With lines crossing, snag and poor angling attitude by other anglers really turns up the heat but that is just normal issues faced by any anglers. We continue on fishing and luckily I manage to fouled hook one Pacu after the rightful owner snap the line due to excessive use of force in pulling the fish to the shore :P.
Finally, our first score of the day!
Lucky!! Fouled hooked it 😛
As time goes by, it was all quite and even the fish was not checking our bait. Soon it was lightly drizzle in Fish Valley and we are hoping for some anglers would pack their bags but they seems to be enduring the changing weather and stayed on. After a while, I noticed that the Fish Valley care taker opened the water way from the highest pond to the catch and release pond. This could only mean one thing, fishes would stay closer to shore and will scour the area for food or waste from the other pond. I decided to move over to the other side as we have better chance in landing our first fish of the day.
The water surging from the other pond would carry food or waste which entice the fish to come closer for its meal. AG cast of the Palm Oil Seed into the swell and hoping a Pacu would take the bait. I made some adjustment on my rig and I shorten the shock leader to improve the line flow out from the reel so that I can cast further as I notice some Pacu are circling far center of the pond. Once I manage to cast the 6363 pallet bait 30m from where I am staying, it was not long when a Pacu hit the bait.

Ultra Light fun!
Score no 2 for the day 🙂
At times when we are about to give up on palm oil seeds, AG finally prove that it is an effective bait for Pacu!
AG adds a new species to his tally, A grass carp!
Fish Valley, Semenyih holds a variety of species and this is the 5th Carp Species caught in this pond!
This carp fallen for bread, great job AG!
A great evening indeed although we only start to catch our fish during the final hour of the day. To move to a new spot was the right decision and we manage to land 5 Pacu and 1 Carp and lost another 4. Still there is no Patin in sight and even Mekong Catfish. We ended the day around 7.30pm and not giving up today has paid off our effort. Thank you for reading and be sure to check more updates from Fishyology.com.
The final one of the day, Pacu!
