Toward that saturday evening had a heavy downpour….Only around 7pm that it stop. Headed down to the jetty. Tide has already turn up slowly.

Casted out my tackle with little hope as the water look cold. Follow by setting up my squid lamp to catch squid. Bait was quite lasting…so hardly need to change.

Very fast time past….Tide is midway up and the current pickup faster….Then great news coming in….LK had landed a barracuda around 1.8kg. Someone there offer to buy it at ten dollar. Deal done. An hour later Ah An also caught a smaller barracuda around 600g. Then old kassim caught a marine catfish few houdred gram. So another angler landed a 500g kaci…follow by Ah An again landed a small GT. Wow!!!!! tonight water fantastic….

12.30am….Ah POW my buddy packup. There is a leftover squid bait and he passed it to me. I tip it on my hook  with tamban bait during my next bait changing..

Around 1am…the current is turning direction….I wind back my bait and found it nicely intact…..I re-casted it down. Few minutes later….suddenly my reel alarm sounded….hohoho….I pickup and strike….YES….fish on….Well not big….I can just wind it back….When surface…haha…a nice fingermark snapper….To play safe on landing it…I call out to another angler there AH Wee to get my squid net to scoop it up. Yup….almost 500g…nice size…and a rare catch at jetty nowadays.
