Two Fishes within Half hours

Date: 28-07-2018       Time: 1940hrs & 2010hrs      Rod: Penn Powergraph Surf 12ft.      Reel: Shimano Torium 20       Rig: Long Snood Bottom feeder      Bait: Fresh Tamban

Reach there around 1700hrs plus. Jig for some fresh tamban and cast out one rod. Tide is on the way up and the current is smooth. Only down point was the strong southern wind was blowing endlessly causing choppy wave. This had affect the surface predator fishes to stay more deeper in water. End the daylight with no result.

Night fall and I change my rig to bottom feeder. Just as the sky turn dark, the first fish bite. My reel screech…I strike the rod and feel some weight. Slowly wind back and up come a red snapper.


Change bait and cast out again. Half and hour later my reel screech again. This time a little louder…Wind in and a nice finger mark snapper surface.


Long Tail Brown Stingray

Date: 06-07-2018      Time: 2200hrs       Rod: Loomis Franklin 10ft.      Reel: Okuma 6000 Spinning       Line: 40lbs braided       Rig: Long snood bottom feeder      Bait: Frozen squid


My friend Simon pull up this 14kg stingray last night when the tide turn up. This fish took his bait and the line went slack without any alarm sounded. Only when he went to check his line that he found it slack. He immediately strike and with some good tug of wall later, the fish surfaced up. Angler Yusof was there and he gaff it up.
