Date: 30-04-2017      Time: 2300 hrs     Rod: Penn Slammer 10.6ft White      Reel: Shimano Torium 20       Line: 30lbs braided with 50lbs mono leader      Rig: Long Snood Bottom Feeder      Bait: Fresh Squid

Its a Sunday night….I started late around 8.30pm. Tonight I only cast out one set of tackle as I will be starting to look for squid using my lamp and net.

Manage to caught one and use as a live lure to attract others. But as the season just about to start, the second one come much later.

I use it as bait and cast out. Twenty minute later i check…its totally gone. I change another one. Around 11pm, my reel alarm screech….The line gone loose…I pickup my rod to strike, yes….fish on. The fish swim inward…I had to wind back more line before I feel tension. When it was about to surface, my bright squid lamp cause it to panic and dive down again. I quickly ask angler Lucas to pull up my lamp. After this the fish swim toward the right. I had to get pass few rods before I able to surface it. By now Lucas has already getting ready my gaff. He manage to gaff it by one try and pull it up.

It was a long tail brown stingray. It tail is super long…more than six feet. It weigh at 7kg
