Milkfish have an affectionate name, the fish of a thousand casts. To even hook a milky you need to be prepared to put in the time and effort. Once hooked, you are going to need to put in even more effort. The power to weight ratio of the milkfish makes it a challenging adversary to catch. Be prepared for some reel melting runs followed up by some spectacular aerobatics. The best part of the fight is it can go on for hours; tiring these fish out is a battle of the wills and stamina.
