Grouper

Date: 24-05-2013     Time:10.40am      Rod: Penn Powerstick 10ft.      Reel: Shimano Torium 20      Line: 30lbs braided join with 50lbs leader      Rig: Long snood bottom feeder      Bait: Frozen tamban

It already 8am….full tide this morning was at 10.48am….so quickly I grab a packet of frozen tamban and headed down. Reach there Ah Chuan just caught a mangrove jack by handline…I setup and casted out…Follow by jigging fresh tamban..

The sky on the western side already very dark and the wind is coming from that direction…Its a matter of time the rain will arrive. After getting some tamban…I prepared to run…But at this time Ah An n Xio fan arrive…So I help to setup the canvas…now has to stay for the rain..

Very shortly rain arrived…hide below the canvas about fifteen minute and the rain pass…Change bait and went to jig for tamban again..When I back…I saw my line slack….I pickup the rod n strike…Yup..heavy at the end…then i feel got something struggling at the end…..I was thinking could it be a puffer fish….Slowly I wind back….it surface….Wow!…a nice size grouper…..I ask Ah An to grab my leader and haul it up…Estimate weight about 1.7kg..
