Barramundi hunting with Jeff Tsen, SAF Yacht Club, Sembawang

Image
Superb barramundi taken on light rod and SS700 reel! The weather and tide looked good tonight and we were thinking it would be an awesome night for sampan fishing. In fact, Jeff hooked up a decent barramundi on his first cast (and he also called it a catfish midway through the fight). The fish was taken right outside the restaurant - always an underrated spot and newbies often say, "huh? so near only?" but when the line peels out and the fish gets landed, different story.  We landed another two fish (a baby kim and ack which we released) through the night before we gave up. Not much sign of boofs and baitfish.    Catch report post from Jeff:    TikTok video from Baktao: @baktao Sampan fishing with a guy that lives and breathes barramundi. The legendary captain underpants.

Bubu fishing trip for newbies with Jeff Tsen

Image
After our last Singapore Deadliest Catch trip with Jeff Tsen , some kakis wanted to try so we invited them along to pull bubu with us. One of the trips didn't yield a super catch but still produced! It is important to note that bubu fishing is like conventional fishing. It's also about luck. Email me if you would like try bubu fishing and I can arrange one! January bubu fishing December bubu fishing February bubu fishing @baktao Calling for kakis that want to learn! One of the fishing methods that will die in the next decade or so. Captain Jeff from RodStation has so much passion to teach newbies the tradition of bubu fishing. ✅️ Learn the art of harvesting your own catch ✅️ Release juvenile fish where possible ✅️ Bubu fishing is sustainable when done right Remember some fish don't grow big, a palm sized rabbitfish, filefish or wagyu seaperch is considered fully grown. Take only what you need and don't indulge in wastage. DM me for his contact. #fishing #singapore #s

Bubu (fish trap) fishing with Jeff Tsen, Dr. Rod

Image
All in a few hours of tough work! Want to do a "Singapore Deadliest Catch?" Jeff, our usual go to guy when we need fresh fish and some fishing action asked me if I wanted to retrieve and deploy some bubus and I think almost instantly, I said "let's go!" Pulling bubus in Singapore can be an extremely difficult and grueling style of fishing but it is rewarding. Contrary to popular belief, it is actually very sustainable as you can keep what you want and it also doesn't pollute the ocean (unless of course your bubu got lost which nobody wants) We set sail from Sembawang Yacht Club to pull the bubus and wondered whether we would have enough to "keep for CNY", a Singaporean thing in which every end of the year to CNY, everything also we want to keep for CNY. So what was the CR except for the extremely back breaking work? Some of the bubus were full of fish, one had two crabs while one had only one giant puffer fish which looked like it ate all the other

Fishing for Giant Trevally (GT) at GT Fishing Pond with an Eging Rod? Why not!

Tackle that made the difference Eging: Zenaq Assaut Esperto Spada 80 / Shimano Vanquish C3000 / Fins PRT 8lb braid / Seaguar #7 FXR General casting: Zenaq Jigger Trust T60-1 / Shimano Stella 4000M / PE 1.5 line from Angler's Hut / Seaguar #10 FXR Photos of the epic day I actually did better than I expected by landing 2 GTs and 1 Barramundi on the eging setup. Landed 1 GT on the general casting setup. I guess fish were quite friendly that day. Beautiful photo by Sherwinder Chonky mangrove jack Envy that size! Fun day of eging My lure got stuck on the umbrella. When it dropped into the water, boom! Barra! Felt a bit like toman fishing. Contact for GT fishing pond Do note that the lease for Aunty Fishing Pond is ending soon so act fast to try eging at at a GT pond! Contact for GT fishing pond here .
