Date: 25-12-2006 Time: 11.00am Rod: Penn Powergraph surf 12ft. Reel: Penn Jigmaster 500L. Line: 30lbs mono. Rig: Cable car Bait: Live tamban.
Wakeup at around 6.20am. After washup it started to rain. Wait till about 8am when the rain stop n proceed down to the jetty. It was already too late for targeting the selar. After setting up my rod, started to do jigging. After some hard work still able to hit three selar hiding at those jetty pillar. Only one tamban was caught n quickly hookup on the cable car rig. Current was slow on the uptide n bait was lasting. It was waiting game now as bait fish was also rare.
Around 11am, I saw my rod tip was shaking. Without waiting I strike n it was hookup. Without much problem, a small queenie was seen at the end of the line. I use the rod to flip it up. Ya..my chrismas present has finally arrived. My wife who was also with me manage to caught her small little present promfet with her ultra light spinning tackle with tiny little shrimp as bait. The rig was a set of tamban rig. We packed up around 1.00pm when the sun is too hot to bare n it was also getting abit too crowded.
