Prawning at 1Ders Recreation, D Kranji Farm Resort (Neo Tiew)

Prawning catches in Singapore have been on the slide since this hobby got popular. Prawn ponds these days stock up more small prawns and don't release as much prawns as before.

The bridge concept
Very big pond. Big for usual prawning pond standards
Lemon herb seasoning & curry powder
BBQ time!
Nothing like fresh prawns?
All is not lost though and to my surprise, this humble small pond at D Kranji Farm Resort are stocking up big blue mountain prawns and are very generous in releasing prawns.

I got a very decent catch and I wasn't even trying. Five things to note below:
  1. The management of the pond were very friendly and serves you with a smile.
  2. Another interesting feature of the pond is that it also provides curry powder as a seasoning and the MSG made the prawns more flavorful as we grilled them!
  3. The tagged prawn system is very logical and down to earth. Simply get cash when you catch tagged prawns. This is good as it is not the usual get free hours when you catch tagged prawns scheme. Nothing like instant cash back right?
  4. Parking is quite ample and although the location is very "ulu", it is quite "modern" inside with a restaurant beside the pond. The pond sells some basic soft drinks and no food & beer (yet).
  5. Bring mosquito repellent and a portable fan if you have.
I reckon that you have to go visit this pond as soon as you can. It's a new pond and the crowd is still a little lukewarm. The water is also clean and there is no lingering "medicine" smell that many other prawning ponds have. 

Although I've said many nice things about this prawning pond, only time will tell if it goes down the usual way of other ponds. Let's hope it doesn't!
