Last night attend a dinner so never go fishing. Me long time never do day fishing as I mostly catching squid at night. So this morning headed down to the jetty.
Casted two rods out on bottom feeder and added a cable car rig with live bait on one of the rod. I switch the cable car rig to the other rod when changing the bottom bait. Like that all the while I will had a cable car rig in the water. It maximise my chance of hitting a fish.
Yes…it come at around 9.30am….My saltist reel alarm went screaming…..I was standing nearby as I already got enough tamban. I strike and hook on. The fish make a acrobatic jump on the water surface. It dive down deep and up again one more jump. It move to my right….I follow and cross over my other rod….It then swim inward. I wind fast and bring it to surface….Yusof who was there bring his rope gaff and bring it up.
A nice queenie laying on the jetty floor….It weigh 3kg….Twenty minute later…after photo taking…..I fillet it as the sky is turning dark…Will be back looking for the King as last week someone had hookup one but lost it when the king when under the jetty.
