    Our target today for this trip is Channa pleurophthalmus, but at the end of the day, Nasir (hobbyist) caught another Channa baramensis; same species as the one he caught at peat swamp area of Matang, few days ago. This is a big surprise to us as we all thought Channa baramensis (named after Baram river of northern Sarawak) only exist in the drainage system of northern Sarawak, Sabah & Brunei.

    The forest of Serian area:





    This is used to be a peat swamp area, now became an oil palm plantation. Channa baramensis was caught at the drain of this plantation.







    In this fishing trip, we are using hook & line method. The climbing perch (Anabas testudineus) took the bait first.









    Cutting the hook off the fish -Its Channa baramensis !!!! Yahoooo!!!
