Jugra SW C&R Ponds, Banting (20.07.14)

As promised after my initial visit last month, a return to Jugra SW Pond. I wanted to return, despite the one hour drive from KL, to catch a redfish and a grouper. As per the previous visit, the fishing was slow, except for in the barramundi (siakap) pond. After no initial luck in the redfish and grouper ponds, I hit the barramundi pond to at least score a couple of fish. I landed two and pulled the hooks on a couple more:

The new development since my last visit was the snapper and additional GT ponds:

After a slow session, I concentrated my efforts in the last hour until sunset at the grouper pond as I’d seen a number of fish being caught there:

Finally, just as the light was fading I hooked-up (again on a jig head with the very effective Berkley 3″ white grub tail lure) . Initially I thought I was snagged, until this 4kg grouper decided to swim away. After a brief tug-o-war, I had the brute in the net. Goal achieved – at least partially, I still want a redfish!

As darkness descended, a swarm of vicious mosquitoes emerged, followed by a flock of swifts, in a scene reminiscent of Hitchcock’s movie “The Birds”. It was time to leave ….!
