Punggol End Beach And Jetty

Punggol End Beach and Jetty used to be one of my favourite eging spots in Singapore. In the past, it used to be less crowded, full of squids and it was a place where i would go have a few casts when i was stressed or needed some fresh air... But now it has transformed into a more developed area and it is packed with people!

I could not recognise the place...

Since there were a few days of sun, i went out to check Punggol End for some squids but i went home early because it was too crowded and noisy. No longer can i do my eging in peace... There were kids running around, shouting and screaming... Big malay families camping at the beach and all over the area...

Packed!

There was still a great number of people coming to fish for squids though... but they left one by one as the wind got stronger... The style of eging has changed alot in these 4 years. 4 years back, these ah laos used only slow crank to fish for the squids. Nowadays, you see them whipping their rods like some pro Japanese wannabe eging angler... Some even bought eging rods, yamashita squid jigs etc....

Packed with new age eging anglers...

Well.... it just proves that even the most stubborn learn...

Oh yea bus 82 does not go to Punggol End anymore... you have to use bus 84...
