Modern Boat Fishing In Singapore

Fishing and prawning in Singapore has been getting difficult for some time now. The popular spots like Bedok Jetty, Sembawang Park, Changi Boardwalk etc have not been producing consistent catches for a very long time now. In short, singapore fishing spots are dying out! Even Singapore boat fishing at Changi, Southern Islads are not producing consistent results!

In addition, many fishing tackle shops are now closing down making the local singapore fishing scene seem dead.

But recently, the local fishing scene has been lit up with the introduction of micro jigging and even kayak fishing.

While not on a kayak, I first had my maiden experience on a portabote a few years back. It was a great experience as i managed to hook up some decent fish. The main advantage of this type of fishing is that you can go near to promising areas with many snags, debris and the small boat means the fish are not scared away.

Eventually, this led to Kayak fishing being more popular in Singapore as fishing kakis wanted access to more spots but still have a way to "feel" mother nature. This led to the Hobie Kayak's being adopted aggressively with a few kayak fishermen leading the charge.

But one very recent post by a friend Shawn Seet (famous fishingkaki programmer guy) caught my attention. He had recently bought a new inflatable boat "Intex Seahawk 2". I thought it was very interesting that he shared his experience with the boat. Do find out more from his post by clicking the link below.
