Reach there around 8pm plus. Ron arrived soon. It was crowded n lucky we manage to find a place for our rods. Both of us set up two rod each. Ron used his spinning set with sarong as bait. Me two multiplyier set with frozen squid as bait. Tide coming up was slow n calm. No action from any of the angler there even until full tide. One thing good tonight is the bait is more lasting. A few time I wind back no need to change bait. I told ron we have great chance to hit something. Weather n water was a bid cold due to the afternoon rain. When tide turn down, the current move fast. Ron have to change his sinker to hold bottom. Around 12am plus, I saw my loomis big game rod tip has some rattle. Pickup n strike. Yes, something heavy on the line. In my mind thought it was a ACK. But wind back turn out to be a brown dog shark. Used my rod to lift it up as the water is high. The hook was deeply set so can’t unhook it. Yeah! finally landed something. We continue to fish until 2am. But no more action n we packup.
