I have several fishing trips lined up this November and December 2018:
On the 24th of November, I will be going to Nasugbu, Batangas to go fishing with my two buddies Jamil Buergo and Anthony Yu, both veteran sports photographers. We will try to prove or disprove two fishing beliefs:
1. Fishing the morning after a full moon is not productive – This is what some say since fishes are up all night busy eating due to the illumination of the full moon.
2. You can find many fishes along contours and drop-offs – to prove this, what I plan to do is use an app called NAVIONICS to look for contours and steep drops around Nasugbu, head to those spots, and launch my ROV to look for fishes.
For lunch, I plan to park at a beach front rest house of my close buddy Atty. Johnny De Castro and do some cooking. And then try some more fishing in the afternoon and head back home before night fall.
On the 4th of December I will try to confirm whether or not 4 days before New Moon is good for fishing. The target area where I plan to fish will be Layaglayag Shoal and an area between Sepoc Beach and Sumbrero Island. This time, I have invited my fellow drone pilot friends to join me in this trip.
Have you noticed that I did not take into consideration schedule of the tide movements? We’ll also try to find out if this plays a major factor as well and record the hours of high tide and low tide for that day, as well as the day’s weather forecast using Accuweather.
