|The Dragon Tiger Group - Not too bad a fight for my custom St Croix 8-14lbs!|
While I do not usually fish at pay ponds, I can't deny that such ponds give newbies or beginners a good first experience. Such ponds are usually high on bite rate and well stocked so newbies won't have the problem of "fish not biting". This was exactly what happened when I brought first time budding fisher-woman Bakgirl out on a trip to Desaru "Brother" catch and release pond.
Bakgirl instantly felt what it meant to hook onto a double digit grouper and all this was done by using artificial lures! Monster Barramundis were also landed on rubber lures and really gave our tackle a run for their money. Other kakis that used hard bodied lures such as the bent minnows and poppers were rewarded too as everyone's tackle "screamed".
See our happy faces below? Fishing in Singapore payponds will never be the same again!

|Well, she did it too! Cast and bam!|

|Small groupers also loved the pink rubber!|
|I couldn't help but have fun some too!|

Well, the bite rate was really excellent and you can see what I mean by this video
