Date: 25-02-2017 Time: 7.30am to 12pm. Rod: Silstar Traverse X 12.6ft Reel: Shimano Torium 20 Line: 30lbs braided with 50lbs mono leader Rig: Cable car Bait: Live tamban.
This morning high tide at 10.20am, so i started off early. Setup my two sets of tackles and start jigging for live bait. Only manage to get two. One i use as live bait on a cable car rig and another one by a bottom feeder.
Not long after this I got my first hit. a Gar fish took my live bait and run..cause my reel alarm to have a screech…I strike my rod and start winding back my line…the fish did a jump on the water surface. As it is not big, I just wind in and use my rod to lift it up.
After this, the water current stop and totally can’t get any live bait fish. It was until the water change direction and start turning down then I manage to caught one.
Quickly rig it and lower it down. Within second…another Gar took the bait. Same it pull along the line and when dive deep. I waited until it pull hard again before I strike and start wind back my line. As usual, it make a jump out of the water surface. Easily I bring it in and lift it up with my rod. Double hit today on surface. but bottom zero as the bait below is not lasting.
Both fishes is given to two elder anglers there who told me they want to eat it.
