Tropical Island Offshore Fishing and Relaxation Day 2

After our good rest, everyone woke each other up at 4am in the morning. It will be our next timing to fish and we are damn excited. All live prawns still in good condition and we got our barang barang and loaded up the boat once again. Had a quick breakfast before boarding the boat...

Captain drove the boat slowly to the first spot and it was only 30minutes away.... Less than 5 minutes into the action using freshly sliced green eye squid, we started hitting ang kueys aka red snapper... hehehe.... We had a few incident when the fish will swallow hooks from multiple lines and the anglers found out they caught the same fish later on....

Sadly, the current died down and so did the bite rate... Not to worry we headed to the reef area to fish other species. We were very disappointed with fishing in the morning at the reef area as there weren't even small fish around but at the last spot before lunch time the magical time came... It was quite chaotic as the action was heavy here. Rods bent down and slippers started flying into the water. We landed a few ebek and parrot before we went back for our lunch...

Before lunch frenzy...

We had a great lunch at the chalet because they served sweet and sour ang gao(red grouper)...yummy! We had a good bath and dinner too. The next timing will be 12am said our captain...
