My Biggest Queenfish

DATE: 21-05-2007   TIME: 11.45pm    ROD: Penn Powergraph Surf 12ft    REEL: Penn 500L Jigmaster   LINE: 30lbs mono   RIG: Long snood bottom feeder    BAIT: Dead fresh Tamban (Herring)

Weather was good n the tide is just nice. Decided to sacrifice some sleep tonight n go squid catching. Reach there the sky still bright n manage to jig for about 10pcs of tamban. I have bring some frozen one along but still fresh one is the best. After casting out my rod, proceed to setup my squid lamp n net. Night fall n some squid start to arrived. One by one it come at interval. Did check my bait n was very lasting. Looking at the smooth moving current n the calm sea surface..Haha…tonight no wind……I know I stand a great chances. Did have some false alarm but only to hook up some rubbish.

Finally…I hear the sound I waiting for…It was almost midnight already. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz….my reel alarm goes off. Haha…pickup my rod n strike…Yes….Zzzzzzzzzzzzzz it goes pulling along my line…..Woooooo……that shiokkkkk…Then I heard a water splash….Wow…it jump up the water surface….Hahaha…my mind started to think…At night only three types of fishes will jump up the surface…COBIA….likely as it was so strong….THREADFIN….not likely as here the threadfin don’t fight so strong…BARRACUDA…same reason as the threadfin…Hmmmm…By now the fish has started to swim inward..I wind my line as fast as possible until I feel the weight. It has headed towards the under of the jetty n has cross some line…Now every body is crowding round to see what fish. I shouted to those rod owner to release their line…They do so n I was able to steer the fish out. Hoho…..the most unexpected fishes to caught at night has surface….The Queenfish again….My third three days in the row. But this one is BIGGGGGG. It also my third night caught queenfish after so many years of fishing. One angler offer to help me hold the rod so that I can go n get my gaff. Easily gaff it n haul it up. Eager to know the weight….I took out my scale n weigh it….Hoho….It tip the scale at 5.6kg….n I have re-wrote my personal best on QueenFish from surffishing. Hahaha….very satisfying…..Wow….now it already pass midnight….The fish so big how to put in the fridge ????….Hoho…no choice….have to do the cutting…One old friend come along n I ask him to watch for the squid while I do the cutting..I fillet it out. After this two days practicing….I am more perfect now on cutting…Hehe….job easily done…n time to packup…Haha…by now it was already 1.30am….Morning guys…
