Ah An landed this 2kg Threadfin during the fast flowing downtide. It took the bait and just cause a light screech on the reel. The fish was wash down by the strong current flow. It only when the rod tip shake that he decided to strike. He wind it in and when I saw it was a threadfin…I took my squid net and scoop it up.

Earlier in the night….I caught a 2kg Big mouth catfish….I was away scooping squid when the fish strike….It was Ah An who wind in for me. This time I was using a Penn Powergraph surf fixed spool rod pair with a Silstar AX 80 spinning reel.
