Soon Hock on Asari Pinktail 40g

After a harrowing experience at Pekan in which I fell sick for 2 weeks, I stopped fishing for nearly a month to focus on studies and work. It was a move which paid back as I managed to snag a rare fish during a quickie freshwater trip today. Weiyee and me bashed in around 3pm only to reach the spot at around 345pm as the dark clouds started homing in on us. I took out my all terrain umbrella and poncho to wait out the storm. Weiyee and me looked at each other with blank faces but I constantly assured him once the rain was gone, action would commence! This area held a good number of Peacock Bass and Toman but from the surface action and ripples, it looked that most of the Toman are gone. We found out the reason later as multiple baited hooks were set and tied to a rope along the grass shore line. It was so disgusting... Anyway, I didn't have much freshwater lures left as I was focusing on Saltwater Fishing this year..... I clipped on a Duel Hardcore 110s 38g and started crank

Pekan Popping for GT and Jigging for Coral Trout

It was old tradition to have an end of the season Sailfish trip at Pekan and this year was no different except that we went for the GTs (Giant Trevally) and Coral Trouts! We had a few groups of friends going up this trip but instead of more fun, it turn out to be a bad trip for me as I got seriously sick on the second day of the trip! The first day of the trip was better for me as I only had slight flu and cough. The first day was pretty bad though in terms of fishing and I landed the few coral trouts of the group while I had a good Spanish Mack that got off the hook after a breathtaking first burst! It took a 40g Jackson Pintail. Taken on Asari 60g Inchiku via bottom horizontal bouncing Taken on Agoo 30g Terence though was not so lucky as his 120g Popper was bitten away by the Spanish Mack. It even gave him a good jump with the Popper in the mouth before swimming away hehehe.... And to think that Terence was popping for GT! The first day of the trip also saw the HOOKED team

Lucky Diamond Trevally (Chermin) On Lucky Umbrella Hat at Sembawang

Another busy patch gone and another few weeks of rain passed me by pretty quickly. I havent had the time to fish for a long long time now and I even lost my tan - which is good! But as my exams draw near and work is getting cleared up, it's back to the sea... This trip was some time back during mid autumn festival in which we got totally drenched in the rain but I still managed to hook onto a Chermin right at the end... Still sunny as we set up... On this trip was Kiat with his new Kayak - An inflatable Hobie i9S Kayak! We started off right at our favourite spot but there were no bites. The funny thing with fishing on an inflatable boat (Kairos) was that time seems to pass slowly and that was bad as you need to have patience when feeding for Chermin as you pinpoint the correct tide to target them. We later found out that some music from the radio can help in "stretching" the time so that we linger around the area longer! Hahahaha! Anyway, we soon ran into a mas
