Went to catch squid and bring along my tackles. Initially intend to fish until 10pm only. But one of my friend come along so accompany him to fish and delay for another hour.
I saw the tide already turn down so I decided to packup. But before I do anything….my reel alarm go screaming….I strike and feel the weight at the end….then it go off when the fish make a acrobatic jump….It dive down again and I found my line entangle with my friend line….
By the time we untangle it…the fish already come near to the jetty…I manage to stop it from going under….I surface it and it turn out to be a queenfish….Quickly one guy with a gaff come along and gaff it up for me. It weigh 4.8kg on the scale.

Drive up to desaru for a short weekend break. I bring along my beach tackles set also. Due to the early morning high tide…by the time I reach there the tide already going down. So I decided to fish on the night high tide. As the night high tide is at 10.18pm…I only start at 7pm after my early dinner…
There is another angler fishing there also….I join him and after some chat…it turn out he is working as the life guard on the resort that I stay. I learn from him that the place got many type of fishes….he ever caught stingray, shark, chermin, snapper plus others type all on high tide. He use spinning set with prawn meat as bait.
But half way through, he got a call from his wife asking him to go home for some celebration. So ended up I myself fishing on that dark lonely beach. As it is very dark, its very hard to spot any bite as I didnt bring any luminous light. I only depend on my bright torch light to shine on my rod tip once in awhile.
Around 8pm, I see my line a bit loose…so i decide to check…I took my rod and strike…. and I feel some pull back….that I realise I had a hookup…It struggle while I wind back my line….It turn out is a small blacktip shark around 500g…I quickly take the photos and release it back to the sea.

Tide was almost coming to the high…This fish took my bait and cause a screech on my reel alarm. I was nearby and I strike immediately…Yes fish on but not big….I gain control and slowly wind back…It struggle along the way and feel like a marine catfish…But….luckily it surface up is a grouper….I quickly ask my friend Ah Fei…who was helping me to catch squid use the net to scoop it up. It weigh 1.3kg on the scale.
