Yesterday night got a call from “Hong” saying that “Commando” has caught a 6kg leopard ray while the rain was pouring. He want me to go down early to join them. I told him that my place was raining heavily also n I will be there once the rain stop. Around 9pm the sky was clear. I headed down to the jetty but both of them has already packup n went home.I fish alone n was later join by some regular there. No action at all n bait was not lasting. I packup around 2am n take a rest.
This morning I went in again. Quickly set up two sets of tackles n jig for tamban. Manage to get some as this fewdays it was quite rare in the morning tide. Tide was coming up fast while current was quite strong. !0am saw a rod next to mine was bending. I told the owner n he strike but he told me no hookup. While winding in it entangle my line. I release my line for him to untangle it. Now my line was push by the current n was at a 45% angle. Decided to recast so I start winding in my line. Feel alittle heavy at the end of it. While my rig almost surface, the fish made some struggling. Hahaha… it was my rod that caught the fish…The fish must have hookup n sweep across over his line by the current causing his rod tip to shake.. I saw it was a small stripe mackeral while it surface n I use my rod to lift it up. It was about 500g in weight. Hahaha… today was the last day of the lunar new year n I got a small present from the sea dragon king….
