Night fishing in Oslob
MetadataShow full item record
Summer is the peak season when schools of glistening kalamputi are drawn to the drumming of the wooden boats and the glare of the bright lights. A mix of newly spawned fish species, kalamputi are silver white fishes that can either be sardines (“tamban” or “tuloy” or “mangsi”), bullet tuna (“tulingan”), red tail (“pulag ikog”) and silver side (“bolinao” or “turnos”). In early evenings during the summer months and some months toward the end of the year, more than 25 small pumpboats and “barotos” (wooden boats with bamboo outriggers that either run on a single propeller engine or on just wooden paddles) converge right in our beachfront in the southern town of Oslob for about two hours.
