Hello big mouth..

Landed myself a good sized grouper during
our luring session this evening.. Trying to target
some 'Barra' at first but the water temperature
today is just not right for the mighty barra to bite
my plastics.. :)

Here's the pics

Better than nothing..

Definitely wrong species and wrong size again..
But its alright...at least these fishes put a little
bit of bend to my rod... :)

NNT Barramundi Ops

if the barra there will still bite on the neap tide..

me and Rudy..

while i'am doing some knocking on the grouper's
door... :)

Girlfriend's blessings

Yesterday's luring session was awesome. Me, Apy and one
of our newbie gang member Rudy, went for a recce trip in search
for barra infested water.. When we reached the spot 'X',
i landed 3 barra within 15mins.. As the tide is getting lower,
my newbie friend also landed a nice size too as Apy only got
3 hit but zero landed.. hehehe...

Total of 6 hits 4 landed on our new barra spot, not bad!!

Here's the pics

Barra landed on Aile Magnet

lost it in between those hungry rocks after that! :)

Resident Barra..

Last night i was invited by my colleague to fish at a
restricted zone somewhere in singapore to try my
luck and wet my lure there, after heard too many
stories about that place that makes me itching
the whole body. :) Reached the spot at 12mn and
i started casting soon after that. 15mins later,
boomz! Good hard fight........
Landed myself a nice 14lbs barramundi..
But just when the tide is getting better, i just
lost my concentration to fish coz i'am just too too
tired and damn sleepy....so sad...
Anyway, its a good spot and worth to come back
again...

Here's the pics
And hungry too, try'na chew my own rod! :)

Barra landed on yozuri crystal

MJ tunggal..

17th Oct 2010 me and Apy went to Sungai Kongkong to wet our
lures there and we were welcomed by our new friendly angler
friend Shahril, who lives there..

Had a great time there and definitely will team up
and come back again soon in search of our target
fish..



Here's the pics
The first thing to do is to drop by a provision
shop to buy plenty of bottle drinks and some
redbull.. Oh ya, and super glue too for my
broken slipper that morning!! :)





This nice photo was taken at kongkong boat
renting jetty before we load our stuffs
onto the boat..




Plenty of kelong's there..


Just a decent shot of one of the river in
kongkong..


Shahril's knowledge on live baiting technics
is awesome. Now he's picking up on the
art of luring and kept calling me a 'sifu'!
hehehe...
Peace bro! :)





Mangrove creek...just loving it...



Luring in progress.



Only one MJ landed by me at rocky spot xxx on
that trip coz we're still learning more about the
place and their fishes feeding habit.. Will come
back again soon for the return of our target fish.
Cheers! :)


Special thank to our Bro' Shahril for the wonderful trip..

Return of the barra..


Meet up with Apy at 8pm to catch the outgoing tide for some Kim action..

On Apy's first cast, something hitted his lure hard and took some line but
didn't managed to set the treble.. Awesome though, its only his first cast!

So i come close to him and cast to the same direction......
Seconds later, BOOM!!! Got myself a strong take, fish on!
Catfish... No wonder.... zzzzz.... :)

As the tide is moving down slowly, the surface is busy with
crazy baitfishes jumping around.. *must be some Kim frenzy
underneath.. Just the right species we're targeting.. So i
changed to my favourite lure and keep on casting passionately..

On my third cast, BOOM!!! A nice 7lbs Kim..

Here's the pics

Catfish landed on Zerek


Kim landed on Maria Angelkiss

This is one of my funny eging videos which i dare
to post for you people..hehe Sorry for the poor quality
of this video. :)

The squid was everywhere like one cast one squid
just like the fishes. Seriously i'am not up to taking
much videos.. Here's a super short one! :)




Schools of baitfish at the jetty.


rubbers work very well, 1 cast 1 fish i can say.

Yozuri ultima spoon is best to cast over the reefs




Oh ya, this is what happened to some of my squids
