Changi Ah Fong: Zenaq Ikari 64-5 and Island Angler's Giant Rubber

Nice malabar grouper on Island Angler Giant Rubber

We had yet another Changi Offshore with Ah Fong and this time I had some admins from Singapore Fishing Telegram joining in. It was quite a short trip since the current guidelines stipulated that we could only fish for 4 hours. This led us to coining the term "Changi Pro Fishing Pond" since Pro Ponds usually is for 3 to 4 hours fishing.

We fished the upcoming tide on this afternoon trip and just two observations.

Was a good day out!

Decent CR

Big snapper!

Giant rubbers continue to work but luck is important...

Lucky boy Yifan caught a decent malabar grouper on this trip. Interestingly, the colouration was quite yellow and there could be a good chance it was a released fish. Nevertheless, it still was greedy enough to gobble up a giant rubber lure by Island Angler that was hooked onto a tenya by Yifan. The hook was too small though and luckily the fish got hooked by the assist hook. No surprise that giant rubbers worked...

Zenaq Ikari makes fishing effortless!

Snapper bullied on Zenaq Ikari 645

When Yifan had a fish on with the Zenaq Ikari 645 (which he shamelessly borrowed from me), I thought it was just a small grouper since the load wasn't that scary. The initial burst was powerful and Yifan had to bring the fight to the fish. He "Zhang-ed" and a few seconds later, the fish followed up. The rest of the fight, according to him, was "just reeling. Amazing. I always thought the Zenaq Ikari was 60% marketing, 40% quality but now I think it's 99% quality. The rod truly gives the angler an advantage and helps you bring in the fish.
