Two Rifle and a Queen

Date: 21-02-2018      Time: 1000hrs to 1600hrs       Rod: Penn Slammer 10.6ft        Reel: Daiwa Saltist 40        Line: 30lbs braided with 50lbs mono leader      Rig: Cable car      Bait: Live herring

Ya…another day of fishing. Morning is up tide and it full around 1422hrs. But the fish just don’t bite. Bait fish is plenty so very easy to get. only is no action at all beside keep changing bait.

It was only when the tide turn down that I caught my first gar fish today. Then within five minute, the same set of tackle and rig got my second gar fish.


Rod: Sasuga SG126        Reel: Shimano Torium 20       Line: 30lbs braided with 50lbs mono leader      Rig: Cable car      Bait: Live herring

After I landed the second Gar, I transfer the cable car rig to this rod. About half n hour later, the reel alarm goes off. I strike and a queen fish is seen jumping up on the water surface. Wind back and it was foul hook on the fish stomach…haha..


So it mean all three fishes are caught by the same cable car rig.

    1. Hi Jamal,
      Thanks for visiting my site. As I am using small fish as bait most of the time, I am using size 3/0 to 5/0 stainless steel hook. This is for targeting big fish on bottom feeder. I use size 2 or 3 live bait hook for my cable car rig on surface predator. For our local water, size 3/0 is good enough to land any biggie here. Hope I had answer your query. Tight line.
