Fishing Typhoon Pedring

A friend and I fished the Mabacan river as Pedring was leaving the country.  The river was high and the water looked like chocolate milk.  We fished for eel and catfish on the bottom with large worms.  We caught a total of four Native Hito and and five One Spot or Paitan.

My buddy hooked a big Eel (Palos) which we estimated to be around 2-3 kgs, but it broke the line when we had it two feet from shore.  Fishing high muddy rivers during the end of rains seems good for eels and catfish.  They must leave their holes and rocks in search of food.

Here are a couple of the hito we caught:
