Fishing with Dad on Fish Stalker Fishing Charter Services (Marina South Pier)

It is always a good feeling to go fishing with the family (dad and brother) as we got to spend precious time together. This precious time seems little now that I have a family of my own. The quaint thing about fishing is that we usually don’t need to talk much during the trip but somehow that long pauses of silence and solace would often be peaceful. Much like how most guys spend time together. Just a no frills, no drama day out at sea and being able to soak in all of that is priceless.

In fact, I found out during this trip that this priceless time together did not even need to involve dad catching fish. It seemed that he was contented enough to sit around and spend time with his sons just by being around. Additionally, he was also super proud and happy when both I and my brother caught some good fishes.

Fishing wise wasn’t so good for the baiting folks during this trip. It seemed like the fish avoided live prawns at all cost! In fact, the fishes seemed to like artificial baits during this trip. Light jigs, slow fall jigs and even non-baited madai jigs worked wonders. In fact, there were a few occasions when big groupers took the non-baited madai jig that was at the bottom of the sea (but my rod was in the rod holder and I wasn’t doing anything!).

Dad was beaming!
6.8kg on the scale
Biao nabbed one on slow fall jigging
The brother caught one too
Taken on 100g kurau jig!
Total catch was decent but full of groupers.

Boring groupers!
Fish stalker's electric cooler was very nice in preserving our catch. No blood or slime soaked icebox!
