Your might find it hard to believe…But it just happened.
Date: 02-01-2017 Time:10.15am Rod: Penn Slammer 10.6ft White Reel: Shimano Torium 20 Line: 30lbs braided with 50lbs mono Rig: Long snood bottom feeder Bait: Fresh Tamban
This morning weather is not very good. It had already drizzling since early morning. Look at Batam side is totally blur..cover with rain. But my temptation of going fishing is not lowered…only things is have to wait.
Almost 9am…on seeing the sky a bit clearer…I headed down prepare for the worst. Bring along just one set of tackle and one frozen tamban for the first cast. Start jigging and manage to get two…that all. Change my bait half n hour later…..
Then…around 10.15am….my reel alarm screech….I strike…FISH ON….again it swim with the current flow…then surface…Haha…same fish…but smaller…
Once infront of jetty, upon seeing the hook in the mouth, I use my rod to lift it up….haha…3 in three days.
Beside my catch…I saw two queenfish and a huge saitoh being caught by others angler.
Date:01-01-2017 Time:09.40am Rod: Penn Slammer 10.6ft White. Reel: Shimano Torium 20 Line 30lbs braided with 50lbs mono leader Rig: Long snood bottom feeder Bait: Defrost kunning
With yesterday successful catch, I heading down this morning again arm with only two frozen kunning. As i know yesterday the bait was so lasting, I know chances are high.
Setup two sets of tackle and casted out. Follow by try jigging for any live bait. Got a live kunning and hook on a cable car rig and slight down on one set of tackle.
Very fast, a small little garfish come and take. Rod rattle but missed. Jig again…but part of tamban rig was cut off by a strong jerk. Haha…sinker gone…need to re-tie.
Before I able to tie another sinker, my other rod n reel alarm sounded. I pickup and strike….yup…FISH ON…It swim to my right along with the current flow….I can feel not very big. Then it surface…WOW!…back fin again….hahaha..I shouted for Yusof…who is at the mid part of jetty…”Auran Tasik”(cobia in malay)…
By now the fish already infront of the jetty…I had total control of it. Yusof come along with his friend scooping net. He want to scoop it instead of gaff. After few try….fish on jetty floor…haha…my first fish for year 2017. Smaller as compare with yesterday one…weigh 4.2kg.
