Trolling and luring in Singapore with Fishing Captain Jimmy Lim from Marina Country Club

Beautiful Hybrid on trolling lure!
Trolling for fish is something we seldom do in Singapore because of the water visibility here. The fish to water ratio is also pretty bad and this means trolling is probably not the most effective method. This was all until I met Jimmy Lim - the charter captain from Punggol who would do trolling even in Changi and Pulau Ubin areas!

As this was a largely trolling trip, we trolled some breakers off punggol and changi and were rewarded by some decent sized gaos. It was quite a productive time as we landed a few pieces in a short span of time. Not bad at all. The lure that scored the gaos was the Reef Runner 700 series Rip Stick. One of my favourite all time trolling lures.

Of course, being the flamboyant beef lovers that we were, we couldn't resist bringing the lotus grill on-board the boat and having a good meal of steak, sausages and whipped potato. And yeah, while we cooked the steak, some groupers and barramundis decided to visit. We chided Jimmy for not telling us earlier that this was possible.

To book Jimmy, you can visit his page at and drop him an enquiry. He operates from Marina Country Club and fishes the Punggol, Pulau Ubin, Seletar, Yishun, Changi, Tekong areas. Micro jigging, jigging, luring, trolling, baiting all possible from his boat.
