Even the most passionate and patient fisherman had a low tone response to the “How was your day?” question. Majority were compensated with a single bite in a full day fishing while the half day fishermen praised nibbles or a catch of a cat fish which are normally an insult in a fisherman’s normal day. The assumption that the tiger went to watch the soccer games proved futile as the main reason are the fridge temperatures that has blanketed most parts of the country with our dam as no exception. Despite tigers known to be seasonal dieters, in extreme cold times they tend to hibernate so they are actually there but more docile and deeper located.
Unfortunately I was off for the month, but I could not have summed the fishing up better. I plan on getting out quiet a bit this month to see if there is anything we can do to entice them to bite, otherwise all we can do is wait for end of August.
