Giant Herring(Teck Ngoh)

Date: 05 July 2009     Time: 0200 hrs      Rod; Daiwa Elimator 12ft.     Reel: Abu 10000C      Line; 30lbs mono     Rig: Long snood bottom feeder      Bait: Night herring(Tua bak)

Ah An is a very hard working angler. He every saturday morning will cycle all the way from Toa Payoh to bedok jetty and will stay over night until sunday noon then cycle back home. Two week back he caught a barracuda around 2kg and early this morning he got this 2kg giant herring. The fish took his bait and given his reel alarm a good workout. He quickly went to strike it and has some good fight as the current was very strong last night. When the fish surface, I saw it was deeply hook so I use my hand to pull it up.
