A Night with Double Catch

Date: 17-06-2015      Time: around 10pm.      Rod: Penn Powergraph Surf 12ft.      Reel: Okuma Cortez 12       Line: 30lbs mono      Rig: Long snood bottom feeder      Bait: squid

Ah Joe hard work paid off….He first caught the 2.8kg Baramundi on a handline below the jetty. The fish took his live squid bait and run off below the jetty. Joe was fast enough to pull it out in time before the fish entangle with the jetty pillar. I used my squid net to scoop it up.

Before he settle down on the catch, his reel alarm sounded. He pick and strike….yes fish on….The fish gave him some fight before he gain control. Winding in was a nice n rare 2.6kg Gerut. I gaff it up.

Tide was on the way up. Current flow is very smooth. My torium reel scream when I was busy with my squid lamp. I strike and the fish make a acrobatic jump on the water surface. As it is not big, i easily bring it in. Ah Hong use my squid net to scoop it up. Its a giant herring about 1.5kg in weight.
