In my case, oftentimes fishing trips catch no any fish. In my place, a single word to describe the situation is "Boncos", but among my fellow fishing buddies, we say "Ora Umik-Umik" which is the same meaning.
I am not so sure about the expression of "Boncos", is it a Javanese word or Bahasa Indonesia, while the "Ora Umik-Umik" is an expression in Javanese. In the fishing context of my fishing world, both expression points to the same meaning.
January to February 2018 seems to be my long "Ora Umik-Umik" series on Tinalah River (Kali Tinalah), but those months were a "high season" for my fellow fishing buddies.
Attached is the "Ora Umik-Umik" video, though no "Fish On" scenes, but I hope it still could present the views of the river.
