21 August 2011 Reunion with LG and The Golden Snappers

Had a great reunion with some old friends... It was a trip filled with laughter and it was a first for some of the kakis onboard. Old jokes and old stories made up the trip.

Our hopes were very low due to the Saturday downpour before we boarded the boat but suprise suprise... we managed to get some good fish although we had only 15 pcs small live sotong when catching sotong up to 12 midnite... We had to conserve our squid by digging out the eaten squid out of the fish mouth. One particular tiny squid caught 4 Ang Cho!!!

Beginners luck was the story of the game. Two of our lucky kakis managed to pull up grouper and ang cho although they are first time on abang boat. On one occasion, the handle came loose on the reel! And on another one we had a case of a spool almost dropping out and that was when the nice sized grouper took the bait and we had to retrieve the fish using handline method with braided line hehehe...

Also burst off some very big ang cho which took out line and cut the leader on the reef... unstoppable!

Many thanks to Abang for this wonderful trip which was a good experience for us. Nobody went home without fishes today :)
