Hungry Night Queenie

Date: 26-05-2012    Time: 10.50pm      Rod: Zzipplex M427 Hi-Flex 13ft.      Reel: Daiwa Saltiga 50      Line: 50lbs mono      Rig: Long snood bottom feeder      Bait: Fresh night herring(Tuabak)

Queenfish very seldom feed at night….Ah ONG is the lucky one…..Tide was on the way up and the current was flowing very smooth…Bait was not very lasting but ONG keep on changing to make sure it has bait in the water all the time.

Hard work paid off….Around 10.50pm….POW….another angler there saw Ah ONG rod tip rattle…..Immediately he strike…..Yes…it ON. He then pass the rod back to ONG…..By looking at the rod bend….we know this fish has size….We were guessing it could be another Threadfin…..I standby my squid net. But when the fish surface….It turn out to be a Queenfish…..I quickly ask ONG to hold on the fish and I grab my gaff.

The fish was brought up easily….It hit the scale at 4kg.

Ah Ong caught this beautiful 2.4kg Threadfin last night. Tide was just turning down with a good current flow. Ah Chun is the one who strike first when he saw the line gone loose. Ong took over when the fish come near to the jetty. I took a squid net to scoop it up when it surface. It was Ah Ong first threadfin at the jetty.
