Barracuda Saves Face!

In yet another whacky fishing episode with Jimmy Lim, we are put to the test of keeping our stomach's sane with all that cheeky laughing and ass poking! The fish were few today though and although we shifted many times, we just could not get the fishes to bite.

But there were still some smallies playing around and they entertained us until we went for the most fun part of the trip... The trolling! It was during trolling that one would feel there was bound to be something at the end of the line as you search out the fishes with that heat seeking trolling lure!

Ang ko li on jig!

Well.... until it rained cats and dogs and we had to take cover.... But we still went trolling in the end...

There were a number of shocks during this trolling trip though as Biao got himself bullied by a suspected big Mangrove Jack above 5kg.... It even broke his lure's bib after it got itself unhooked!

But Biao redeemed himself with a whopper of a Barracuda at 15lbs taking his lure. It tried to get away but was no match for his Calstar 10-25! It was promptly released after photo taking to let other anglers have a chance at hooking this beauty up!

Here's a short video so you can visualize the epic fight!


Nothing much to write about on this trip but next trip there will be! Here's a consolation video of Jimmy using his "top secret" technique of getting your hook out of the snag if that happens!
