Eging (Fishing for Squids) at Labrador Park Breakwater and Ramp

Eging has been picking up popularity in Singapore for quite some time now but it probably has already reached the peak although some tackles shops in Singapore are bringing in hybrid squid jig lures which have treble hooks on them. Eging hot spots are an open secret in Singapore since squid habitats and suitable eging spots are easily identified. Squids are also less valued than fishes and chances are, you will always have ample squid to catch! The squid fishing spots in Singapore are confined to mostly the South (Harbourfront and Marina), North-East (Punggol) and East coast (Bedok Jetty, Changi, Tanah Merah).

Cacio e Pepe Review - Yummy Italian Cuisine in the West!

Fishing for Storms at Desaru Beach!

It was going to be such a good day's fishing at Desaru. We were going to hit the teng frenzy, cobia frenzy, GT frenzy, grouper frenzy and all sorts of frenzies! Fishing at Desaru always proved to be exciting whether we were jigging, casting pintails or simply baiting... little did we know that a mutant from X-Men came to spoil to show! Yes, it was no other than Storm! So we were fishing for storms at Desaru... no fishes, no squids, no bikini babes.... Just men and their bitchy screams.... enjoy!
