After our visit to the Arak Producers, we continued our trip to one of our most loved Warung where they serve delicious freshly caught Nila (Nile Tilapia). Of course I couldn’t resist giving it a try to catch some of the fishes. 😉 (Well, after fishing here and here and here, I’m quite a Pro at it. 😉 )
After a few seconds, I had the first bite – a pretty big Nila – but then I decided to try my luck in another pond. Look what happened shortly after I threw my hook into the pond:
I could hardly believe my eyes! 😯 I had caught the biggest fish of the whole pond! 😯
Luckily Pande was close to me and ran to help me with the fish. It was just too heavy to reel in! 😯
When the Warung owner heard what was happening, she came to help me take the fish off the hook. The fish was jumping pretty crazy so she needed quite a while. Then she threw him into a bucket.
The Warung owner asked us if we wanted to take the fish home (paying it of course) but since big old fishes in sweet water sometimes taste pretty muddy, my parents didn’t like the idea. So we still had to pay for the fish because after throwing it back into the pond, there’s still the risk that it could die from the shock or injuries.
