Peacock Bass Invasion!

After seeing the Officers and Sergeants bringing up the crabs by the dozens at Tekong, i was so very itching for some action, so midweek through my BMT, i decided to go hunting during my first bookout.

I hoped to get some Haruan but suprise suprise... Casting my frogs the whole day long yielded not even a take but Yuki Mondo and Alan were getting PBs! It seems that the PBs have invaded this spot and somehow have made the Haruan population very shy. Looks like the PB invasion is completed... And even this small fishing hole far away from the PB army has fallen victim...

Another mass exodus...

God damn it another good spot killed...

Try This Software: Digital Photo Resizer

I have been testing a software recently and the result of that is the funky watermark at some of my latest pictures. Kekeke...

This software is none other than the Digital Photo Resizer -.-".

Have you ever faced hundreds of photos and dread at the task of resizing each and everyone manually? You're saved! With this software, i can resize all my big photos at once.

Digital Photo Resizer quickly and accurately resizes a mass of photos at no cost to quality all at once. One of the problems with many photographic software packages is you cannot quickly resize many photos at the same time. This simple easy-to-use tool does it all for you in a couple of easy steps. The application creates slidecshows, screensavers, and Web sites, and photo image and text watermarking. It can FTP upload generated Web sites and images.

Version 2006 adds support for TIFF image format and enhances 'Search for file', 'File properties', and 'Print' options.


Try the software now. Download it at

P.S The free version is pretty limited. If you would like a full version, you must buy it but of course you can MSN me for something nice and free...

Getting to KTM Resort, Batam

KTM Resort is famous for its nice scenery and luxurious rooms but at the same time, avid anglers can take a chill out from the usual hustle bustle of rush or hardcore trips... Do some eging, light offshore or simply laze around. The day offshore at KTM Resort is relatively cheap at 250 SGD for 10 pax but i have not tried it yet.

Here's a simple guide on how to get to KTM Resort, Batam. The first is to call or email the kelong and clarify which room you want. There are beachfront, seaview and deluxe cottages. Once you have booked the room, a 30% deposit via OCBC bank is required. The remaining 70% will be paid once you reach the resort.

Check out the map of KTM Resort for the room placing(Click for a larger image)

Different Rooms, Different Pricing!

Now that you have gotten your rooms, the second thing is to book the ferry there. You can choose Penguin or Batamfast.

Once the ferries are booked for your departure date, you are ready!

When you reach Batam, the resort driver will be waiting for you to drive you up to the resort which is only 5 minutes drive away.

More information on KTM Resort can be found at their official website.

Secret Tuas Offshore: Last Trip Before Enlisting!

Tackle Used:
Taurus Altima LJ PE 1 - 3
Daiwa Caldia Kix 3500
Leader: Triumph Fluorocarbon Shockleader 40lbs
Hook: Decoy Octopus 1/0
Swivel: Rosco Snap and ball bearing

I got a call from one of my kaki last week and he asked me if i will be interested in a Tuas Offshore. It's with a boatman he recently discovered and his first trip was super good. I told myself why not and it's gonna be my last trip before enlisting. There was only 4 of us and it was quite expensive but the extra space cum speed of the boat was well worth it.

During the trip, the first part was quite a joke because when we reach the boat, 3/4 of our Live Prawns had died so for the second half of the trip we were on dead prawns. There was a total of FIVE baktao landed during the trip. Seems like its BAKTAO HEAVEN there. Hehehe... There was a close to 1kg Baktao landed too...

Dedicated to Momok...
