Following the last gasp snakehead that I caught early in the afternoon on my last visit, I decided to try again. This time I wanted to try a late afternoon / early evening session.
I arrived at 3.35pm and was casting lures within 10 minutes. Contrary to the previous visit, there was absolutely no action at the headland. I tried a range of hard and soft bodied lures without so much as a strike. After 2 hrs + I decided to move to the east bank. Despite fish feeding on the carcasses of dead fish, I could not get a single strike. This was my first ever blank trip to this venue.
The worrying numbers of dead fish floating in the water (I counted at least 5 dead fish) on this visit together with the lack of strikes is not a good sign. I the last 3 trips, me and friends have managed a total of just 3 pacu and one snakehead. This pond has definitely taken a downturn from its former glory days of abundant snakehead action. Has the sun set on this location? It certainly seems to be the case. It’s going to be hard to justify a return visit ….!
