Fishing with Ah Orh (Boon Black) Fishing Charters (Berthed at Raffles Marina)

Boon Black Fishing

It’s been a few months and I’m catching up on my catch reports. Recently, I was invited to fish on the Boon Black Fishing Charter and subsequently booked another trip after that. Boon Black Fishing Charter is berthed at Raffles Marina and is actually made up of two separate boats – one captained by Ah Org (Black) and another by Ah Boon. Both of them are really easy going captains and this made fishing really relaxing. 

Comfort Level 100

The first thing I noticed when I boarded the first time was the comfort level of the boat. It was spacious and had comfortable backrests and cushions. Simple bait trays, bait tubs and iceboxes were also arranged neatly which made things really organised. Boat should be a Pongga 28ft.

Big Grouper Culture Shock

During the trip at the start of the year, we went for Big Grouper (at Tuas) or what our local community calls “Tong Gas”. It was here that I was introduced to the big grouper culture. Not really a shock for me lah but I just felt my heart shatter when every 800g grouper was labelled as bait and throw into the bait well. Apparently, small groupers, emperors (leng chiam), tibuns and tuskfish were very good bait for the “Tong Gas”.

Quite Affordable 

Upon calculation of the costs, I also realised that the fishing rate was actually quite affordable. The current costs are $580 for 4 kakis, $650 for 5 kakis and $700 for 6 kakis. This included the live prawns, drinking water and ice. He will also be able to issue you a complimentary parking ticket if you drive.

Catch Reports

Good? Bad? Definitely good not because of our total catch but because Ah Orh is one of those captains that can really find fish. He is also incredibly hardworking and a really entertaining guy once he gets turned on. His song playlist is also rather interesting…
