Hon n Chuan was already there waiting for me. Tide is on the down side with fast current flow. Setup my tackle n cast out quickly. Chatting around with them as I didn’t catch squid tonight.

Haha….around 10pm plus, I heard a alarm sounded but was thinking a little boy was playing with his reel. Didn’t do anything until he come n tell me there is alarm sounded. Quickly went to my rod n take alook, Wow!!!!….the line already flowing along with the current…hoho…quickly pickup n strike. Yes…heavy at the end of the line n can feel the fish is struggling. Easily wind back with my powerful reel n saw it was a threadfin when it surface. Without delay, I use my rod to lift it up….yes….it hit the scale at 1.3kg. Hoho…everybody around was so envy…Me got my first award tonight. Continue to fish until 1.00am n packup to get some rest.
