Kumbohan is a “drunk” fish hunting activity done by the people of Lamongan, East Java during the ngabuburit. Of course, not all Lamongan residents engage in this activity, only those who live around the river that flows through the Bengawan Solo. Whenever the Bengawan Solo River rises, the water becomes cloudy and makes it easier to catch fish. These fish are called munggut or “drunk” fish. There are various types of “drunk” fish, from shrimp, lobster, bader, keting, milkfish and others.
