Rubber Mania @ Pasir Ris Farmway 3 Catch N Release

Recently, i got to know this Poly schoolmate of mine whom i just found out also fishes... So late night after i book out and saw my MSN, we made a trip to FW3 the next morning.

Tackle Used
Shimano Bassterra Cross X Design 10 - 20lbs 6'6 / Daiwa Caldia Kix 2000 / 8lbs Powerpro Red


It is a few stressfull weeks for me as i got problems in both NS, health problems and You Know Who... So i thought some fishes would do the trick.

There was a problem though... We couldn't get the "Secret" Bait. Hahaha... So we got some Kembongs and chcken liver. The morning was super sucky but that lucky friend of mine managed to hookup a medium sized Chao Praya Cat. Unfortunately, much is left to be desired of the photo. Hahaha...

CPC Est at 15 kg

Now was another problem... The fishes weren't biting at all. They were simply not around... Until lunch time when i got bored and clipped on a cheapo rubber lure with a long shank debarbed hook attached to a spit ring.

Within minutes of trying i got my first hookup... It was a small cat!

Small CPC In Progress

Took the photos(Thanks Mark) and proceeded with casting and soon after, i hooked onto a Patin! This one took the bait like a speed bullet on slow crank bouncing below on the pond bed.

Patin No. 1

Retarded Look

Now was the unbelievable part... After some more casts, ANOTHER Patin took my bed. Seems its Patin frenzy today. Mark fought the Patin and look how happy he is. LOL.

Song Song

Lots more Patins were landed throughout by others and there was a short period i got 2 hits on my rubber but failed to hook up. One hit was a steam roller and after a burst, my hook came off :(

Seems that rubber is good when the Patin refuses bait... Hmmm...
