Every year the third day of the lunar new year I will go fishing. It is the beginning of my annual five days holiday before I started work. Same this year and I headed there early in the morning. Casted out two rods with a bottom and a top cable car rig. Tide was coming up and current flow was very smooth. A lot of tamban around so live bait is easily available.
At 10.10am, the Sea Dragon king decided to send his good wishes to me. He never fail to do so for the past several year. My Torium reel alarm goes off and a queen fish was seen jumping out of the water surface. I strike and the fish pull the rig and go deeper. It then jump out again much further away. I retrive the line and it follow inward. It dive down again when near the jetty. It took me some fast rewind action before I can surface it. A hongkie couple who was there to jig for tamban come to my aid. He took my gaff and try to gaff it for me. But after several try he fail. I ask him to hold the rod and I took over the gaff. When landed, the fish weigh 2.4kg on the scale.
