What is Madai Jigging?

Madai jigging and inchiku jigging is getting popular in our waters due to new Japanese concepts that local Singapore is getting crazy on. The fish are responding well to Madai jigging as it is probably something they have never seen before. Madai jigging in Singapore works by drop shotting the 'octopus-like' jig straight into the coral reef system and work the jig by bouncing it at the bottom. As a result, many bottom fishes like the grouper and curious parrotfish or wrasse get hooked up. Madai jigging is effective because we can target the coral reef extensively and have less chance of snagging or getting stuck.

You can adjust where you clip your swivel to or attach the rubber skirt to different areas of the inchik

Chop Hock Heng Closing Down

Hi guys, I just read from Alan's blog that Chop Hock Heng fishing tackle shop will be closing down by the end of March 2012. They will be closing retail operations. Chop Hock Heng are one of the oldest tackle shops in Singapore and it joins five dots in closing down. The stretch of tackleshops at Beach road is now never the same that Sabre Tackle and Chop Hock Heng are gone. So go down and grab the house brands of Chop Hock Heng before the retail shop cloes. Hunch is that other tackle shops will be grabbing existing stocks of these jigs like white rabbit, protech and they will probably be selling them at a more expensive price! Btw, there is no indication that there will be any closing down sales so don't bet on it!

Tukun Perak Fishing, Penang Popping and Jigging 2011

I'm finally blogging about this trip after a few months. I'm not putting hopes on receiving the rest of the pictures anymore so I'll just blog with what i have. This is my virgin 'Popping for GT' trip and well what else can I say except i was DAMN EXCITED. Clarence was organising this trip and he was the solid kaki as usual, loaning me his reel and rods so i can try popping. He warned me that it's best to try first and get my own set afterwards. Penang Airport Our boat GT Challenger With the famous Pekan ricky Approaching Tukun Perak Well, the start of the trip was very optimistic, we hit a good sized Wahoo on rapala magnum 14 red head. Calm weather was present when we approached Tukun Perak. On the first cast, a GT was lost on Popper and it was all silent.

Fish Farm Adventures

Recently, i made a trip to a fish farm east of Singapore. It was an extremely last minute trip and my uncle only called me the night before saying that his friends knew some of the fish farm boss and let's all go up for some fishing. Well, it was a long time since i did some baiting so i was a little hesistant but i went along anyway.... Ahoy matey! Looking back at the storm The weather was really bad and usually this means the sea will be full of active catfish... Yes we were right.... Catfish small and big were brought up. Tide was going down and water was good for jigging some baitfish so i jigged a few baitfish up which looked like some selar papan. Hooked one with a paternoster rig and dropped it directly below the stilts at the middle of the farm... This was to target groupers and snappers. My uncle and his friends were casting away from the kelong targetting the stingrays, catfish, chermin etc. According to my uncle he got a very big hit last week and cou
