Malaysia freshwater lobster is locally called “Udang Galah”. After monsoon season, weather will become  dry and hot. Sun will warm up the water, now it is the best time to catch freshwater lobster. ” Satisfaction guaranteed ” that is what angler say if they are lucky to catch big size lobster. Good spot must be deep and have  weak water current. Effective baits are worm, baby prawn, small fish, and sometime people also use chicken liver.

Here is my best spot to catch freshwater lobster.
