DATE: 22-07-2007 TIME: 0930am to 2.00pm. ROD: Penn Powergraph Surf 12ft. REEL: Penn Jigmaster 500L LINE: 30lbs mono RIG: Cable car rig w/o float. BAIT: Live Herring.
Went to the jetty yesterday night and was force to leave due to bad weather. It drizzle until this morning around 9am then stop. On seeing the weather is clear, I pickup my icebox and headed down. Reach there the jetty is quite empty due to the rainning. Tide was at the end of the low tide. Setup my tackle n manage to jig for some fresh herring as bait.
When the tide turn up, the current was smoothly except the sea surface was choppy due to a strong south western wind. Got my first hit at around 10.30am. A small wolf herring took my live bait n was struggling. wind in n lift it up by the rod. It weight at 300g.
The second hookup came at about 11.05am. My reel alarm has a short screech when this queenie took the bait. Without much problem I wind in n lift it up. It hit the scale at 1kg.
The third one came at 1.15pm. It hit the live bait hard n cause the reel alarm to scream. It fought hard with the help of the strong surface wind. It take me sometime to control it before it was gaff up by my friend Yusof. It weigh at 2kg.
Haha…was so happy to landed three in a trip. By 2pm, the sun was too strong for me to bare so decided to call it off.
