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.
