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.
