Fishing buddies Erwin and Gilbert of Arroyo St., City Proper, Iloilo City find angling enjoyable and a good escape from the stresses living in a pandemic. This is why the fish dispersal program of the Iloilo City government is always welcome news for Ilonggo anglers. “We fish here for our meals, and we always catch something. Unlike before, now we never go home empty-handed,” Gilbert said in Hiligaynon, adding that they are able to catch a variety of fish, including sapsap, lapad, kikiro, bulan-bulan, and bulgan. The duo uses recreational fishing gear to catch fish at the Iloilo River. They could go on for hours doing nothing else but wait for the fish to bite. This has been their life since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic.
