Momok Vs Motoro

Another trip was made to Farmway 3 after the New Year Trip... This time with Halley on board.

I was going to let my light tackle get some feel of fish again so i brought along a Shimano Bassrise 4-8lbs paired with a cheap yellow reel(can't forget brand) with 6lbs powerpro braided line. It was fun using the bass rise but i almost couldn't set in the hook when the fish took the bait. When the fish came close, the lifting power of the rod was good and i could control the fish.

A short video on the fight


It was a slow day and we only managed a few fishes.

Momok managed his first freshwater stingray though... a Motoro Ray... Congrats!

Here's what we got.

New Year's Day At Pasir Ris Farmway 3

Here's a CR that is a little outdated but still brings back fond memories. AG, Momok and me went to Farmway 3 to get our first fishes for the New Year. Momok and me had a barra while AG had a Patin. We were grateful that day as the fish were biting fast and hard. It was raining the whole day but it still was a pretty crowded place! I'll skip right to the photos!

Here we are again...

I had a very fast take that snapped off my 6lbs mainline in seconds... but the fish was still onto the hook and floater! A sneaky grin came to settle on Momok's face...

Photobucket

He used one of my treble hooks and foul hooked the floater!!!

And there you have it... my first Rohu... The worker said that it's a precious fish so i wasn't allowed to hold it as i might drop it. Well, the funny thing was he dropped another Rohu later, onto the hard ground. A giant THUD was all we heard. Everyone around the whole pond went ooOoooOOoooh

Pole Fishing For Golden Pomfret

I've finally received the photos for our New Year's Day fishing at Pasir Ris Farmway 3 from Momok. It'll take some time to sort them out though! We had some fun yesterday at the Pasir Ris Pole Fishing Pond. Fishing is done by using a long pole, mono main line and house hooks/leaders. I've been observing this pond for awhile and finally got a chance to test out what i observe. The house pole rods are heavy and thick but the fight of the fish is good if you allow it to run.

Photobucket

We got ourselves 2 rods for $50 each for 3 hrs. Me, Momok, his Brother in law and his kids are the participants... The bait we are using is prawn meat as we are targeting the Golden Pomfret/Pompano/Permit/Kim Chio. For the 1st hour, we had nothing! I only had one take and the fish threw the hook. The other two people at the pond were landing fish though so we continued scratching our head. It was not until the ah lau next to me asked his daughter to buy something for him that i realised what the secret was. I mobilized AG to get the secret for me.

The little rascals...

Both of us are hooked!

With the secret thing in place, bites were much easier to feel and striking was easy. Once the ah lau left, we are hitting fish quite regularly. We lost quite alot of fish as once we got one we will pass to the small kids to have fun with the fish. After 9pm, we had the whole pond to ourselves so it was fun as we could let the fish run all over the place. The kim chios here take that bait very slowly but it's fun... I foul hooked one on the head and i was running all over the place to try and stop it.

If the fish run to the pump area the key is to keep your rod low so the line is low and won't get caught in the propeller. They're not sharp and rocky so it's hard to get cut off. If it dashes to the front where the rope meshes are, keep your rod left/right to turn the fish or to keep the hook away from the rope.

We will definitely be back for more... hehehe... Momok u better not go without me!

New Year Eve's Rainy Rainy Afternoon

Momok and me were determined to get our last fish of the year. It was extremely sunny throughout the day. It was hard to sift through the spot as it's been ages since i was here.

When i reached the spot though, dark clouds started to loom. I saw a black figure moving slowly across the water's edge. It was a great big Toman. I setup quickly but quietly... it was gone... But then, my first cast on a new Pencil that i brought in was rewarded with a take! What?!?! That fast?! A cute Toman baby was hauled in.

The rainy started on me and momok with the groundsheet backup was still not here. I crouched below a shady tree while i waited for him. The next few moments were hilarious... Two grown excited men holding up a groundsheet on both ends with our bags in the middle! We persevered and it was soon time to rumble!

The rain was still thick but we ventured out to fish. Momok tried hard with a Trophy Scumfrog. And yup he did get a take ... another smallie... It seems as though the Peacock Bass were not around with the heavy rain...

On froggy...

The rain went away and we casted as we covered the banks. Small peacocks of 4 inches were carefully caught and released but no big ones! Then, i got a a pam size one which took near the banks. Still no big ones...

Last fish of 2010

We bashed out... Momok's last fish of the year a decent Toman while mine... a finger pb... We will be going all out to get our first few fishes of 2011 the next day at Pasir Ris Farmway 3... What a ride it was... Until the next update! All fishes were caught and released.
