11 reasons to go fishing with Jimmy Lim!

I seriously miss fishing with Jimmy but it's open season and that usually mean's we're fishing further out from Singapore. Most anglers in Singapore would be fishing in Malaysia fishing areas like Rompin or Pekan. As I look through my fishing photos with Jimmy, I realize what a guy he has been and what a joy it is fishing with him. Here's 11 reasons why you should go fishing with Jimmy. Go ahead, give him a call.

1. He is not a charter captain or a boatman. He is a friend.

We all know that insensitive, uncaring and boring boatman that merely drives the boat and brings us out fishing. At the end of the trip, we no longer keep in touch and we forget about each other unless we have to go fishing. Jimmy isn't like that. We meet up for supper on other days, we talk about life during our fishing trips and age is no problem (I'm 26 and he's 60 but we still have fun).

2. Most multi-talented charter captain in Singapore

Jimmy is no stranger to a variety of fishing techniques. He does fly fishing, kayak fishing and he even goes scuba diving. With someone like that, you're bound to get fish.

3. Visionary human fish finder

Jimmy has a sixth sense for locating fish and he knows where the fish are at. Fishing kakis are seldom disappointed and even if the fish aren't biting, Jimmy's a pretty funny guy.

4. He gives haircuts on his boat (sometimes)

I remember I was joking about having a haircut on his boat. Well, he made it happen. Check out this post for the evidence.

5. He is an avid fan of micro jigging

It's quite common to find micro jigging being popular in the Southern Islands and it's fairly easy to get a hookup. That's the opposite for Changi where fishing spots aren't that productive for jigging. Still, Jimmy braves the odds and regularly produces catches on micro jig. You got to admire that.

6. Highly kissable

He is a super sporty captain and won't mind kissing anyone (or anything)

7. Hot body charter captain

He is extremely macho and fit even though not very young. Ladies, he'll steal your hearts.

8. Always catching fish

If you caught nothing, you can rely on him to get you some fish for dinner. He rarely disappoints though sometimes he does this.

9. Always going the extra mile

Jimmy is always going the extra mile to give his customers a good time. Sometimes, if there's enough time, he'll stop by the floating restaurant at Pulau Ubin to give customer a memorable end to the fishing day.

10. He is a LEGEND

People don't seem to know that he has been doing this since 20, 30 years ago. Jimmy has so much experience under his belt that he basically is a legend! Here's a picture to prove it.

11. He also gets 'sangoat' while fishing on land

Jimmy joins customers for casual fishing and while he is a fishing legend, he's not immune to getting 'sangoat'.
