Geylang Badminton Hall Prawning!

Today we went down to Joe Tackle and Chop Hock Heng to get some Sabiki, sinkers, hooks and squid jigs for our coming Sibu Trip. I got a few Yamashita Warming Jacket Egi Oh from Joe's. They are pricey but i'm keen to try them out. We also found out that Joe was going prawning later with his secret bait! So we decided to tag along and test out the bait too!

The bait was actually packed and preserved hey bio(krill shrimp). I found out it was too mushy and drops easily. However, it packs a real punch with the smell. There was a slight difference using this compared to the chicken liver bait.

Then again, the prawns weren't biting that day. It seems to be getting worse by the day. I still preferred the TTH(Tua Tao Hei) prawning outlet last time. Their prawns were REALLY HUGE... their smallest prawns are what you call big prawns today!

So much for the pathetic catch... Let's hope we're storing up luck...
