A few weeks ago, I enjoyed watching a fishing competition put on by a local government on Siquijor during their Fiesta. There were 16 entries- some were team entries and some were single fishers- and they brought in their fish pots of various sizes. The fish pot is pretty cool, they leave it out in the water for a week, and when fish swim in, they can’t get back out, but no bait is used, and it is considered a non-destructive fishing method. Then the catch was weighed, and prizes were awarded at the end of the day. I really loved seeing how proud the men were of the baskets of fish they brought in; it is a very big deal to be acknowledged as a good fishermen!
