Tonight start the long weekend as this Sunday will be our National day and follow by Monday will be a public holiday.
Went there around 6pm and the place is already crowded as Singapore has lots of anglers. Our island are surrounded by water, so shore fishing is naturally become a common hobby. Fishing is also a survival skill and who know you might need it one day when time are bad and food are rare. Especially where most of our food depend on import.
Tide was on the way up when i cast down my bottom bait. It last quite awhile and this are sign of a likely chance of hitting a fish bite.
True enough, around 2040 hrs, my reel screech with the line slake. I pickup the rod and strike….Yes…fish on…you can feel a weight at the end of the line. I slowly wind in and it struggle along the way. When surface, a grouper was in sight. I ask my friend to grab hold of my squid net and scoop it up. Estimate it weigh around one kg plus.
