People think that Kapitan’s Pond is the only place to go fishing in Coloong 1. Few of them know that theres another promising paypond recently developed and its owned by the friendly Aling Nene.
About the place
Aling Nene’s ponds are composed of three ponds located behind their beautiful two storey house. The one near the weighing station has been seeded with tilapia and bangus. A similar sized pond can be found on your left, where several bamboo cottages on stilts have been recently added. A short banka ride further out will bring you to the third pond, which has been seeded with barramundi. However, it is believed that the barramundis have escaped from this pond and has occupied the other two. This probably is true as several anglers have already caught 2 - 3 kg specimens on artificial lures.
How to get there
Drive through Coloong 1. About 500 meters before you get to Kapitans pond, watch out for a small street on the right side of the road as that leads to Aling Nene’s pond. Usually, pedicabs and tricycles wait for passengers near that area so getting directions won’t be hard to find.

Amenities and costs
Prices of fish and cottages are very competitive. And the best thing is, they don’t charge any entrance fees! So you can bring your whole family along without spending an extra 50 php per head.
However, parking space may be a problem as they don’t have a parking area compared to Kapitans. Furthermore, bulate boys (earthworm vendors) don’t usually hang out near their entrance, so you should be either bringing your own (ewww!) or drive further and get some at Kaps place. There is also a newly constructed bathroom available, which is a necessity when nature calls.
For further inquiries, you may call Aling Nene at 2940458. However, please search this site for the information you are looking for or just leave me a message before calling them up. They are a little short of staff and as always, courtesy and consideration is expected of inquiring anglers.
