Trolling, Madai (Tai Kabura), Inchiku and a little baiting with Jimmy's On IT'S Gr-R-Reat!

One day, on Facebook, somehow, someway I managed to land myself on a fishing page " Fishing on IT'S Gr-R-Reat". I thought to myself... this guy Jimmy sounds very familiar. As I scrolled through the catches, I suddenly remembered... Oh yes this is the boatman that does trolling and it's the very same boat that Alan Chan asked me on a few years back. I couldn't make it for the trip then and he landed a Barracuda on lure as big as himself! Somehow, someway, suddenly... I striked up a casual conversation with Jimmy on Facebook and suddenly, suddenhow, excitingly... I placed a deposit with him and the very first trip with Jimmy was planned! The kakis were also a mixed bag of excitement - Kiat whom recently just got poisoned on artificials during offshore and Ah Biao - whom hasn't fished for almost 2 years!

Changi Offshore Fishing with Ah Chong

Yet another trip with chongster and the gang to ang cho land - Changi. Fishing the Changi, Tekong, Ubin seas has always been boring - it's always either golden snapper or grouper. This trip was a perfect example of that except the catch really sucked. There was a super torrential downpour in the morning from 5am which lasted till 9 or 10am and even though I almost wanted to tell ah chong no go, he had this really confident streak in his voice and eventually we decided to go and get some fish! We stopped by Changi village hawker centre to tapao mizzy's corner nasi lemak, had a feed of ipoh hor fun and Changi village carrot cake before we proceeded to Changi point ferry terminal to board the boat! After that it was to the prawn farms to get our prawns from kelong aunty - it has been almost 10 years since i met kelong aunty and she has aged alot... nice to see she always remembers me! Favourite Ipoh Hor Fun from Changi Village Changi Village Black Carrot cake! It was

The baktao and crew were back to Desaru for another tryout after the semi successful jigging trip at Desaru previously but things didn't look so good during this trip! There seemed to be some sort of monsoon at Desaru and we got smacked around in the stormy weather. We had breakfast at JB area with standard malaysian wanton mee and dim sum. The storm followed us! standard selection Kiat didnt seem fazed by the weather!    standard wanton mee from malayisa Loading up at the Desaru fruit market convenience stall where we got our drinks and ice... ice and drinks riding into the storm badol's boat and We didn't manage to move out to our favourite mack and teng spots but Tommy still managed to land two decent tengerris! Could you guess the lure used? Nope, not pink tail, not pin tail and not even the new D lures... but... The LB110.... which stands for live bait 110mm! During stormy cond
