Ikan Kelisa Hijau Tasik Kenyir

Waw!…. ni berita yang menarik bagi kaki pancing dan penggemar ikan air tawar….ni baru dikatakan rekod sebab selama ini kelisa berwarna merah jingga atau kelabu/perak. Mungkin kualiti air dan sumber makanan ikan terutamanya phytoplankton) di Tasik Kenyir yang menyebabkan warna ikan ini berubah kepada kehijau-hijauan.

TASIK KENYIR: Pengalaman manis menewaskan ikan kelisa hijau (Sclerophages formosus) waktu Magrib di Sungai Cacing baru-baru ini membuatkan Team Lampam dari Kuala Lumpur nekad turun semula ke tasik itu selepas Aidilfitri ini.

Tangkapan kelisa seberat 2 kilogram (kg) oleh Acab menaikkan semangat empat sekawan iaitu Atiq, Afiq, Syidi dan Asma untuk melengkapkan ‘lesen’ yang jarang diperoleh masa ini. Menceritakan pengalaman itu kepada JORAN, pertama kali yang diatur Abang Sharil sebenarnya mahu menduga toman dan sebarau yang banyak mendiami tasik seluas Singapura itu. Perjalanan seawal jam 7 pagi ke Sungai Cacing menggunakan rumah bot Kembara Kenyir mengambil masa hampir satu jam yang dipandu tekong Abang Siam. Dekat situ, toman banyak mendiami kawasan ini selain belida, baung, kelah dan kaloi.

Bot berlabuh di tepi lubuk sungai itu yang terdapat tunggul pokok balak.
Tekong memberitahu lubuk itu dihuni toman bersaiz XL dan pemancing yang datang ke sini kerap menaikkan spesies itu.

Seperti biasa, Atiq, Afiq dan Syidi selaku kaki mengilat bergegas membuat balingan ke kawasan tunggu selepas beberapa ekor toman kelihatan timbul menyedut udara.
Balingan demi baling tiga sekawan itu membuahkan hasil apabila joran Atiq disergap toman berhampiran kayu tunggul reput separa tenggelam. Perlawanan singkat itu berjaya mendaratkan ikan toman remaja berskala sekilogram dengan menampakkan belang merah kehitaman di badannya.

Afiq yang membuat balingan di tempat sama tidak menunggu masa lama apabila toman hampir 2 kg sudi menyambar gewang Cultiva Tango warna oren.

Aktiviti memancing dihentikan jam 4 petangnya untuk sesi makan selepas tekong yang memancing lampam menggunakan perut ayam menggorengnya garing dan selebihnya dimasak asam pedas. Ia bersambung jam 7 petang dengan Atiq, Afiq dan Syidi menggunakan teknik memancing dasar bagi menjerat baung yang biasanya makan waktu senja dan malam.

Teknik itu menjadi apabila lima baung didaratkan tidak sampai sejam dengan menggunakan umpan tapa yang terkenal busuknya. Acab yang tidak puas mengilat sejak pagi tanpa menaikkan sebarang tangkapan, meneruskan kaedah itu. Beliau menggunakan umpan tiruan Storm-Chugbug warna putih seakan anak lampan yang banyak mendiami tasik itu.

Balingan beliau ke arah tunggul dan kemudian dihenjut pelahan untuk menampakkan ikan cedera di atas permukaan air.

Tiba-tiba satu sambaran mengejut diterima berhampiran tepi bot. Keadaan itu memaksa beliau mengarau joran Abu Garcia Hornet Stinger dengan kekili berprofil rendah Abu Garcia Skeet Reese sehingga melengkung ‘U’.

Selepas pertarungan hampir lima minit, spesies berkilat melompat atas air dan menampakkan sisik dorsal yang panjang. Mangsa terus membawa lari tali berkekuatan 20 paun ke reba dan akhirnya kelisa hijau berskala 2 kg dinaikkan.

Sorakan kegembiraan menggamatkan suasana di Sungai Cacing dengan tangkapan istimewa ini yang sekali gus mencipta rekod peribadi kelisa hijau milik Acab.

Caring for Wounds

Reviewed by Louise Chang, MD

A Bit of Blood Is Good

Blood helps clean wounds, so a little bleeding is good. Most small cuts and scrapes stop bleeding pretty quickly, but you can help by applying firm, gentle pressure with gauze or a tissue. If blood soaks through, put another piece of gauze or tissue on top, don’t remove the old one or you may separate the wound and start the bleeding again.

Clean Cuts and Scrapes Gently

Ouch! Got another cut or scrape? Your first step is easy: Soothe and clean the wound with cool water. Then remove any pebbles or splinters with alcohol-sterilized tweezers. Gently wash around the wound with soap and a washcloth. Do not use irritating soap, iodine, alcohol, or hydrogen peroxide — fresh, clean water should be all you need.

Do You Need an Antibiotic Cream?

Antibiotic creams and ointments not only keep wounds moist but they can reduce the risks of infection. If you do use an antibiotic, apply a thin layer on the wound. Certain antibiotic ingredients can trigger a rash in some people. If you get a rash, stop using that ointment.

To Bandage or Not to Bandage?

If your scrape will be rubbed by clothes, cover it with a bandage. An uncovered scab or scrape is at risk of reopening or infection. When in doubt, cover it up with an adhesive bandage to keep out the bacteria (and your prying fingers), then change the bandage daily.

Signs of Adhesive or Latex Allergy

If you feel like it’s itchy, blistery, or burning under your bandage, you may have an allergy to the adhesive used in some bandages. For sensitive skin, try switching to sterile gauze and paper tape, or an adhesive-free dressing.

Signs of Healing

Almost as soon as you get a cut or scrape, your body begins healing your injury. White blood cells attack infection-causing bacteria. Platelets, red blood cells, and fibrin create a jelly-like clot over the wound and soon a protective scab forms. If your wound gets itchy, be gentle — you want that scab to stay where it is.

Quick Care for Minor Burns

Most of us have had a small burn or two. To treat one, cool the area right away with a cold cloth or cool water to keep the skin from holding the heat and continuing to burn. Afterward, wash the burn with soap and water and dress it lightly. Leave any blisters that form alone — they help to protect the skin as it heals.

Caring for Surgical Wounds

Taking care of a surgical wound is similar to taking care of cuts and scrapes. You’ll probably have to protect the incision with a bandage for a few days, and change the dressing daily. Follow your doctor’s instructions for caring for your stitches or staples. You’ll also want to keep the area dry, and report any increase in bleeding or redness to your doctor.

Recognizing Signs of Infection

If there’s skin redness that spreads out from your injury, swelling, green or yellow fluid, or increased warmth or tenderness around your wound, you may have an infection. Other signs include swollen lymph nodes at your neck, armpit, or groin, as well as body aches, chills, or fever. If you have any of these signs, give your doctor a call.

See a Doctor About a Wound That …

… won’t stop bleeding after 5-10 minutes of pressure; is deeper or longer than a half-inch; is near the eye; is gaping or ragged; was caused by something dirty or rusty; has dirt or gravel stuck in it; is very painful; shows signs of infection; or was caused by an animal or human bite. Also see a doctor if you aren’t sure if you’re up to date on your tetanus vaccine.

Reducing Wound Pain

Reviewed By Brunilda Nazario, MD

Wounds always hurt, but the degree of pain will vary according to the nature, location, and severity of the injury. Burns are particularly painful, as are many blisters, cuts, and scrapes. While a puncture wound may hurt less, it could potentially be more serious if left untreated.

For any wound, you should take the following steps:

* Take care of the wound immediately, because even a minor wound can get infected if bacteria are allowed to build up in the wound site. If the wound is minor, you should give first aid at home.

* If you get a puncture wound or step on a rusty nail, you should see your doctor immediately, because you may need a tetanus shot. If you don’t know whether you’re due for a tetanus shot, don’t take any chances. Call your doctor. If the puncture wound is from a human or animal bite, seek emergency medical attention. If your cut is deep or has jagged edges, you may need stitches to close the wound.

* Clean the wound with water. Avoid using soap, hydrogen peroxide, or iodine, which can irritate the injury. Hold the wound under running water to remove dirt, and use sterile tweezers to remove remaining debris. If you can’t get the wound clean, see your doctor, because the dirt could trigger an infection. If there is a large object embedded in the wound, leave it alone and seek emergency help.

* When the wound is clean, apply antibiotic ointment one to three times a day to prevent infection, and cover it in a sterile bandage. Before reapplying ointment, clean the wound. Stop using the ointment if you develop a rash or other reaction. Change the bandage daily, and use soap to clean the skin around the wound.

* If the injury doesn’t stop bleeding on its own, use a clean cloth to apply pressure. Maintain the pressure for 20 to 30 minutes while elevating the wounded area, if possible. If bleeding continues after 30 minutes of pressure or spurts out of the wound, seek medical help.

* Watch the wound to make sure it is healing. If the wound does not begin to heal or grows red, warm, and/or inflamed, or the skin around it shows red streaks, seek medical care immediately.

Reducing Wound Pain

If you have a postoperative wound, a serious injury or burn, or a chronic wound, your physician may recommend medication to relieve pain. Don’t suffer in silence. If your wound is painful, or if a wound that wasn’t painful now begins to bother you, call your doctor. This could be a sign of infection.

For minor wounds, these simple steps can reduce pain:

* Cover the wound to protect it from further injury.

* Change the bandage daily, and keep the wound clean to prevent infection.

* Take ibuprofen or acetaminophen to ease initial wound pain. If pain lasts for more than a day or two, consult your doctor.

* For a foot or ankle wound, stay off your feet as much as possible to ease pain and encourage healing.

* Be sure to get plenty of sleep and follow a healthy diet to help your body heal.

For minor burns, these simple steps can reduce pain:

* Hold the burn under cool running water,soak in a basin of cool water, or apply cool cloths to the burn.

* If a blister develops, do not break the blister. That raises the risk of infection.

* Cover the burn with antibiotic ointment and a sterile bandage. Change the bandage daily.

* Take ibuprofen or acetaminophen.

* Do not put butter, oil, ice, or ice water on a burn.
