Upper Seletar Reservoir Legal Fishing Ground October 2020

It's not often that I go freshwater luring fishing in Singapore. I probably do that once or only twice a year. And it's because of the lack of time, lack of excitement and that I simply cannot go to non conventional spots anymore and we all know how much difference that makes.

There comes a time though that you just want to wet your lines and then there are a few fish that appear to entertain you. That happened today at USR legal fishing ground (can you believe it?) as the schooling Temensis (or Peacock Bass or whatever you call it) came within casting distance and were basically taking jigs and lures the moment they saw them. Talk about not needing any skill at all.

It was really fun though as Shawn and me reminisced about those times we regularly went for freshwater fishing sorties...

Not much tips here. Simply cast near or into the school and you'll get a hit. If you can't reach them, try jigs, spoons and heavy rubbers to get the distance. Shawn and me last count on how many fishes we caught. Some of our fishes were caught and released without photos. Probably about a dozen or more on my end of things.

First one on the baktao lollipop jig!
Crippled herring. Personal favourite old school jig!
