Ah Hong fish almost every saturday night….but for the past one over year….he caught nothing…Fish that take his bait always ended up line snap or missed hook. It happened so many times that we had to label him with white foot base(bad luck). Some even ban him for striking their rod when a fish take the bait.
We know he is very desprate to hookup one to prove us wrong..haha…but it happen again n again until he himself lost confident….It show sign last night….
I went there early before they came. I manage to jig some tamban as bait before the sky turn dark. Ah An come first before Hong. Tide was on the way down but current already slow down. We setup squid lamp to catch squid but was very rare.
It was around 8.20pm when the down tide was about end…We were chating when his reel alarm screech….He was just next to it and strike it….Yes…fish on…Me n An start to wind back our line to avoid entangle….Then Hong say the fish swim inward….I was fixing up the gaff when I can see he is worried….worried that the samething will happen again n loose the fish…So he ask me to take over….
I took over the rod and play the fish…leaving the fixing of gaff to ah An…I also order both of them to bring up our two squid lamps…reason is fishes are afraid of bright light….they will fight all out when U want to bring them to surface….
Without the squid lamp….I easily bring it to surface….As the water was low….It is not easy to gaff it as below the jetty is very dark….Ah An try few time but fail….Hong saw it and come over to hold the rod from me and I take over the gaffing job….I also missed a few gaff before I got it. It weigh 4.2kg after landed….
Ah Hong was so relief after this as he had finally break that fat zero and no more a white foot base…

Sound funny right ? Yeah…Its all begin yesterday afternoon…I was fishing there from the morning until about 1pm when the tide full…Was about to packup when Ah An and Xio Fan arrived…I decided to leave one set of tackle there as I will be back in the evening….I ask Ah An to change bait for me if he is not lazy…Good for him also as he got two rod to play…
Then…around 4pm plus while I fast a sleep….my phone ring….Ah Hon was on the line….”Your rod kena Boonnang(Golden travelly)..around 4kg…Wow..reel screaming….Will keep it alive in the water “
I was back there around 6pm…the fish still alive…weigh it…Ya…almost 4kg..

Went for a short trip….Main target is to catch squid…but did bring along a set of tackle to cast out. Current was slow today and initially bait was not lasting…Only when the tide turn that the bait was lasting. I use the left over bait from last saturday night trip.
Around 9.45pm…tide has turn up…I suddenly saw my line gone loose….Quickly I strike the rod…Heavy at the end…Easily wind in….Only when near the jetty that the fish fight back…by diving downward…
I surface it and it was a marine cat fish…..I use my hand to grab hold of my line n leader and pull it up…Estimate around 3kg..The fish ended up given to a angler there.
