A very successful trip

Date: 01-10-2005

Went to pickup Allan around 6.45pm. We reach our spot around 7.15pm. Tide was coming in on slow current. The sky there was cover with rain cloud n lightning. We were worried that it might rain n spoil this beautiful saturday night. Lucky enough, the sky was clear after 15 minute later n we start to setup our tackles. Ron arrived soon n join in. Five rods alltogether but two hour passed and nothing happen beside the long lasting baits.
9.30pm, the tide was almost full. While we were chatting, suddenly Allan reel alarm goes off. He rush up to his rod n strike, yes, heavy at the end of the line. The fish gave some strong fight with deep dive here n there. Allan holding well with his tackle n soon manage to surface it. Wow! a big fingermark snapper 1.7kg landed. With this we knew the feeding time has started. All rods were rebait n casted out. Very soon one of Ron rod the bell ringing. He strike n wind in a small bream. Around 10.15pm, Another Ron rod the bell ringing n bent forward. He strike but missed hook.
15 minute later, Again the bell ringing. This time he strike hard n yes, Heavy…at the end. The fish move along with the current n make very deep dive. Ron was holding dearly to his rod. From the bent of his rod, we can tell it is something big. Lucky is his line are brand new so can withstand it well. After some hard fought battle, he manage to surface it. Wow! wow!, a new Fishingnewsroom shore caught record on fingermark snapper was set. It weight a wopper 3.9kg. Beautiful! Half n hour later, my turn. The fish took my just casted out bait n jump up. It cross over n entangle with one of Ron rod causing his bell to ring. Ron strike n I notice my line gone slack. I wind in and notice the entanglement. It was a small barracuda about 900g who took my single hook bottom feeder rig. By now the tide is already moving down. We fish until around 1am and decided to packup.
