Back to Eging at Punggol End Jetty Eging Spot
I'm finally eging (also known as squid fishing) again thanks to the boredom brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. In fact, I suppose I accidentally rediscovered eging again thanks to one of the Southern Island offshore trips were we went to Pulau Hantu to hide from the storm. I got bullied by a squid there and got itchy again...

The eging scene is kind of different now from when I just started. Now there seems to be many models of squid jigs and many specific ones just for different purposes like sight casting, shallow, deep and so on. But for me I still firmly believe in a few things which are sound/vibration, action and contrasting colours for different occasions.
In general you can use pink, orange, green egi for night time or day time. If day time gets difficult due to shy squid, you can try silver, grey, dark red, brown or gold which are also known as natural colours.
Went to Punggol End Jetty to try out some eging and managed to get two squid before the big storm came and I had to leave. One of the squids was hard to get so I swapped out the Yamashita egi for a "Cofita" egi. I think many of you won't know what is "Cofita" egi but it was one of the most effective and hard to find jigs last time.

Pictures below! Squid weren't big that day. I was waiting for bigger ones to come in but the rain came before that...

|Still a nice place for eging although a little shallow|
|The best thing about weekdays...|
|Alas the rain came and I had to go|
|Just back into the game... don't have much egi yet.|
