Still on my lunar new year holiday….Went down around 10am when the tide was on the way up. Casted out two rods on bottom feeder and cable car rig. Manage to get some live tamban although quite rare today.
Around 1pm as the tide was about to full…after changing my bottom bait, I slid down my cable car rig….this garfish was nearby and it go for the grab n run….I strike immediately and it was ON. It make several acrobatic jump on the water surface before I able to wind it in. I use my rod to lift it up as the water was high.
After unhook and photo taking, the fish was given to a fellow who wanted it.
