Was there last night to catch squid. due to the very slow current, catches was bad and also no fish landed by anyone. Take a rest around 3am on my mobile home and headed back to the jetty this morning.
After casted out my tackles, just manage to jig a few tambans. Luckily the bait was lasting so no need to change often. Stop jigging as can’t get any more so just sit around to chat. Tide was already mid way down and current flow was smooth.
Suddenly I saw my rod tip shake a little and stop. I thought missed already so I walk forward to my rod. Then zzzzzzzzzzzzz……my reel alarm goes……Haha….that is what I waiting for. Grab the rod up and strike…Yes…heavy at the end and it done a acrobatic jump on the water surface. Oh…big queenie there.
It dive downward and swim inward. Easily wind in the line but half way it turn and start stripping line. It goes for a couple of meters before I stop it and gaining line again.
While i surface it, Nafi was ready with my gaff. Easily bring up and it weight 3.8kg.
