Sam Law Fishing for Sagai 2023


Behold... on this trip, we had purposely sought out sagais because we were bored and wanted to just harvest fish. We were so desperate and only bought 1/2 kg of live prawns which we didn't really use anyway.

Ah Bao's "feather"

Gao on jig!

Caught it on feather!

Strangely though, we caught all sorts of interesting reef fish before the "sagai" fishing started. Ah Bao even caught a coral trout on what he called "mao" or feather. We also used sabiki rigs to catch plenty of baby yellowtail barracuda aka kamasu. These are super tasty by the way, but it is a story for another day.

When the current was about to pick up, off we want for sagai. Sam was fairly confident and recommended "long-line" and sabiki jigging. Long-line usually refers to a very long horizontal presentation (think 4ft of leader) with a feathered jig or hook at the end. One would just let it flow out and impart a jig stop motion to imitate flapping bait/krill.

Wooohooo, caught one of the target fish on Berkley aji using long line method! No fight at all. But that is not important.

But, the fish weren't biting and even when the pros came over in another boat, bite was still lukewarm. We managed some hits though and I caught a selar pan (also known as shima aji) that was too delicious! 

Lawrence and Sam thought got some unwanted bycatch... In another video, Sam got spooled by a shark.
