Luring, jigging and baiting with Sam Law

There are so many options for fishing in Singapore now but there is so little time to do so. Add the myriad of techniques that one can pursue in fishing and you end up with a mix of expectations, worries and excitement. The best fishermen I know though, can navigate through all these and still come out victorious - either contented with a day's fishing or always getting a fish no matter the situation. If you're like me and you're always trying to squeeze time for fishing, then I think versatility in your fishing expectations is important. You'll want your boatman or fishing captain to be able to do everything and to be flexible according to the water conditions. Sam Law is such a captain that I know of and he's not only versatile but very big on results. It's tough to place what he really is good at - I used to think he was very good at bringing folks out for jigging and slow fall but it seems that he also knows his baiting stuff!

Introducing Family BBQ, my new found favourite place in Bangkok for Thai Mookata. As I got very excited and hungry upon reaching there, I missed out taking pictures of the spread. We chose the seafood buffet which comprises of salmon fish head, mussels, clams, baktao, squid, crab, bamboo clams, prawns, and a lot more non-seafood item s

3 tips if you're fishing for the first time at Pandan Reservoir

Clear requirements now Just a few months ago, I wrote that we should give the Singaporean authorities a break when it comes to illegal fishing in reservoirs but never in my most intimate dreams would I have expected PUB to then open up more fishing grounds in our local reservoirs. What’s more was that they didn’t just open a small section or platform (like they did previously with most of the legal fishing areas), they opened up massive sections of fishing areas in certain reservoirs like the popular Pandan Reservoir. I had to admit that the news struck me weirdly. On one hand, I was concerned that there should have been more done to evaluate the whole fishing environment and system before committing to such a big change. I.e. opening a reservoir is one thing but how do you maintain fish stocks are another. Being a seasoned newbie angler also informed me that one should definitely fish at the opened areas as soon as possible. It was not that there wouldn’t be any fish after i
