While I started to fillet the queen fish, suddenly I hear them shouting “oh tio tio tio” and my Daiwa Emblem reel go “Zzzz zzzz”. Ah An again the first one to reach and strike. As my hand is dirty with blood now, I ask An to fight. He fought for awhile and told me he not use to my right handle spinning reel. Haha…no choice I had to wash hand and take over. Now the fish has follow the current flow and moving to my left. I had to bring the rod and cross over two rod parking high up before I able to pump the rod again. It didn’t struggle much as I manage to bring it close. Upon surface…”Wow” the crowd that watching gave a good shout as they saw a fat grouper on the water. Ah An bring in his gaff and lift it up. It weigh 2.4kg just 0.1kg short of even my personnal best on grouper on surfcasting.
