Wild Barramundi

Date: 10-12-2011     Time: 8.10pm      Rod: Penn Inxs Ultramatch 12.9ft      Reel: Shimano Torium 30      Line: 30lbs mono     Rig: Long snood bottom feeder      Bait: Dead Tamban

Tide was on the way up. Bait was quite lasting at this stage..Suddenly…there was a water splash in the sea….and AH ONG rod the line gone slack…LK was the first to spot it….He pickup the rod, wind back the loose line and strike…Yes…a full tension on the line and the rod bend….The fish was swimming inward….He passes the rod back to AH ONG the owner….Very fast the fish surface….From far I can see a wide body fish coming in….It is definitely a good fish and not a marine catfish which is very commonly landed at the jetty on this few weeks. Without hesitation…I use AH ONG squid net to scoop it up. Wow… a fat silver barramundi was on the floor….It hit the scale at 5.5kg. It also set a new mark on barramundi landed there this year.
