noontime fishing

it was at noontime when i was at the lake and i noticed that people are either having a picnic, driving a bike, swimming or fishing. imagine the heat today ,which sometimes reaches 35 degrees Celsius, yet you'll see these people fishing.people walking with fishing rods, setting up their baits along the lake shore is a common scene in Sampalok lake on a weekend.some do it for a living while others enjoy it as a leisure. kids also had their own time of spending time with the lake by making improvised boats made up of styrofoam.
the sinking of the boat Princess of the Stars in the coast of Sibuyan island might have affected the sales of fishes in Luzon but not in Sampalok lake as they rely more on the fresh water fishes.being an archipelago with 7,107islands with several bodies of water within the islands, it shows that a large number of Filipinos depend their living in fishing. next to biking and fishing around the lake, i highly recommend jogging. specially for people who seek to loose weight and live a healthy lifestyle. so here's a guide from the local officials of San Pablo for those who wants to jog around Sampalok lake:

Circumference: 3.7kilometers
Activity -------- Fast -------- Slow
Walk -----------35mins ------ 42mins
Jog -------------22mins -------30mins
Run ------------16mins -------19mins

San Pablo city might not be the best place to be, but it's worth visiting for a day trip.

Another interesting post with many great pictures.
(I like your comment on my Sky Watch: it was a morning with cloudy sky and the effect is really dark!).
Have a nice weekend.

>quinttarantino, thanks!

>hi tentay, hahaha.... ganun na nga. bakit? wala ka bang ibang kasama nung nasa la mesa? sayang masaya din kasi. kailangan din ng mahabang pasensya.

Dakilang Islander said...

fishing at 35 degrees! baka mag-aapoy na ako nyan..hehh pero sa ganda ng lake oks lang din

SandyCarlson said...

Strong people to endure such heat! If I were there, I'd jump in the water!

Rio said...

nung una kong trinay mag fishing e takot ako sa uod pero nung tumagal na, ako na mismo naghahanap ng uod sa lupa..hehe

nakakainis lang minsan kapag ang tagal tagal na tapos wala pa ding nahuhuling isda,kaya ang ginagawa ko minsan,tinutusok ko yung fishing rod sa lupa at babalikan ko nlang..hehehe
at yun!! may maliit na isda na nauto ng mga uod ko..=)

minsan naman ako yung niloloko ng mga isda...inuubos lang nila yung uod ko per hindi naman sila nagpapahuli..hehe..
wahh..haba n ng comment ko..dami pa sana ako (kwento) comment.kaso baka magkulang ang alloted na space para sa iba..hehe=)

the donG said...

>dakilang islander, oo. mainit talaga kaya ang itim na ng lumalangoy.

>hi sandy, that's really hot!

>hi doc rio, hahaha... patawa na naman ang experience mo. ngayon uuod na ang takot sa yo.

pwede naman talagang iwan ang fishing rod kaya lang asar din kung maliit ang huli o kung mamalasin talaga wala. nawala pa ang uod. hahaha... tinulungan pa yata ng mga isda na makalaya ng uod. hehehe...

kwento ka lang. wala namang alloted na words dito.

zherwin said...

fishing requires patience, and i have very little, kapag ginawa ko yan baka makatulog ako hehe.

i remember sampalok lake, legend has it that one can find sampalok trees at the bottom of the lake or at least, what remains of them.

ALiNe said...

Gossshhh! Akala ko nalunod yung tao sa last pix :D

Karen of Sillymonkeez said...

What a great series of photos!

Abou said...

sarap talaga sa province ano

eastcoastlife said...

I have been to some fisheries and it's hard work. The fishermen have to soak themselves in water most of the time.

redlan said...

nafi-feel ko yung sobrang init kahit mga around 8-9 am pa lang ng umaga. yung balat ng mga mangingisda na-used na yan sa direct exposure sa sikat ng araw.

akala ko ano ang tinitinda ng bata, styrofoam boat pala yun.

isa ako sa gustong mag loose weight. sana malapit dito ang san pablo city

The Islander said...

sa panahon ngayon. kelangan talagang kumayod. kaya bahala nang malapnos sa kakabilad sa araw, may pantawid gutom lang. hehe

the donG said...

>zherwin, oo nga. kailangan talaga ng pasensya. kaya dapat laging may kasama para may kausap ka kahit papaano.

salamat sa kwento kasi hindi ko alam yon. dami pa yatang ibang alamat ang mga ilog ng san pablo.

>hi aline, hehehe... hindi naman. sumisid lang. salamat sa pagbisita.

>hi karen, thanks a lot!

>abou, sinabi mo. preskong presko pag nasa ilalim ng kahoy.

>hi eastcoastlife, true! they are already used to it.

>redlan, oo nga. iba na talaga ang panahon. pero kailangan talaga nilang mangisda.

oo barkong styrofoam nga yon. hehehe... dami din namang pwedeng pagjoggingan dyan sa iloilo.

>islander, totoo yan. sa hirap ba naman ng buhay.

Earvin said...

ganda talaga basta mga pictures ng tubig. Wehehe.

Selerines said...

Nice fishing dong... It must be really a nice experience right? Fine where is the fish fry for me?

equilibrium2008 said...

wow ganda super bilib talaga ako sayo Dong. :)

the donG said...

>earvin, tama ka dyan.

>selerines, you might as well visit the philippines.

>hi equi, salamat!

Lawstude said...

i agree. majority of filipinos still thrive on fishing being an archipelago.

another impressive post dong.

Ferdz said...

Tama! I think even for just a daytrip it's worth a visit. Just to stroll around and spend time. Parang ang sarap ding magbasa lang ng libro dyan buong hapon.

redlan said...

hahaha. d ami nga pero walang time. once lang ako nakapagjogging dito. mas kewl kapag marami kang kasabay.

the donG said...

>lawstude, maraming salamat!

>ferdz, tama ka dyan. ayos magbasa ng libro sa ilalim ng mga puno doon. yung iba nga gumagawa pa nga mga paintings doon.

>redlan, totoo yan. hirap magjogging ng mag isa. kaya saya pa rin pag marami.

sho said...

What a nice spot to drive up to to chill and spend the rest of the day. We should make that Manila date soon. Haha.

R-yo said...

ganda ng view. parang napaka placid. pero naalala koyung umakyat kami dati sa me kaliraya lake. dun din pala kinukuha sa lake yung tubig na iniinom namin. Ganyang ganyan. Sinasalok habang nasa gilid ng fish cage. hehehe

Heart of Rachel said...

Great shots. Fishing is something my hubby misses doing. I'll show his this post and perhaps he will be inspired to go fishing again. I'm sure it would be a fun family activity.

KRIS JASPER VAN DYKE said...

i have only done fishing once, and i hope to do it again soon.

Panaderos said...

Nice shots and ang sarap mag-fishing. Mukhang very relaxing. :) Pards, gaano kalayo ito from Manila in terms of number of hours' drive?

Leoj said...

Very nice compositions and concepts. :) Maganda talaga sa Pinas! Anyway, I'll be glad if we could ex-link. :)

Carver said...

Another great set of shots. I enjoyed the ones of people fishing and it does look like a great place to jog.

Lalaine said...

lagi ka nakakagala sa pinas... sana ako din... sama mo kaya kami ni rio? :D all expense paid ha? hehehe

minsan gusto ko din matutong mag fishing... pero gusto ko yung siguradong may huli agad ako... hahaha

the donG said...

>stanley, yes. i think you really should schedule it sooner! hehehe...

>r-yo, talaga? ganun kalinis? dito naman sa samaplok hindi ganun ka linis pero hindi rin naman ganun ka dumi.

>hi rachel, really? this will definitely be a good place. you have all the lake shore that you need.

>jasper, at least nagawa mo na rin sya.

>panaderos, it's more or less 2hours. without traffic it only took us 1hour and 45minutes from san pablo to makati.

>leoj, ganda nga talaga. sure. adding you on my blogroll.

>hi carver, thanks! yes it is. you have a two lane road where less vehicles pass by. perfect for jogging with trees as shade.

>hi lalaine, oo nga sana makasama naman kayo kaya lang all expense charge nga lang. hehehe... see you soon.

malamang sa aquarium talagang sigurado kang makakahuli. hehehe...

Sandpiper (Lin) said...

Very interesting and wonderful pictures, here and in your other posts! So different from anything where I live. I'm going to try and slowly catch up over the next week, but it will take me some time because I'm so far behind. Thank you for visiting my blog while I have been sick.

Dina said...

So much water in and around your country.

TENTAY™ said...

Meron, ate ko. gusto ko talga magfish, never tried talaga. Kaso pareho kami takot.
