As soon as we are back later in the week, the real fishing will begin. Our first mission will be to fish the complete Temenggor lake, every bay, every cove, check out every stump and every snag. It's quite a mission, but important to establish what is going on this year. It will take a month. Hopefully in this time we will be finding Gourami - this is the main target for January. Any Snakehead we find will be a bonus, but we should be finding a few at the top of narrow bays.
In a couple of weeks the Cicadas should be around, which is something I've been looking forward to since March last year! If it's anything like last year I'll be able to make big inroads into really setting about these fish and it should be very exciting. Finally things are all about to happen, and I can't wait. This is the opportunity to really work on developing day-time Gourami leaders.
I wish you all the best for 2017 and I hope this will be your best year of fishing so far!
