Lake Victoria is slightly easier to fish in simply because you will use trolling system with deep diver lures which already have treble hooks where the fish is hooked automatically hence less tactics is required except while fighting the fish but for Murchison falls national park there are 2 types of fishing first one is casting Lures this will require significant amount of energy as you will casting by hand using casting reels and jigging sometimes and also live bait fishing which requires an extreme level of expertise as you have count until the Nile perch or the cat fish swallows the fish and then set the Drag in order to place the hook in the right place and also with high chances of hooking massive fish you will have to ensure that your drag is controlled to avoid the fish from snapping the line if it’s a big fish, usually the skippers are quick to sense if the fish is big so they can push the boat off the banks so that you can float down to gain more line during the fight.
