Barracuda and Fingermark Snapper

Date: 05-12-2020 Time: 1910 Rod: Penn Slammer 10.6ft white Reel: Shimano Torium 20 Rig: Long snood bottom feeder Bait: Frozen Tamban

Decide to go for a night trip after the Saturday rain stop. I bring along few tamban which i had jig during the day late morning trip. It was not crowded at the jetty as i think due to the strong cold wind blowing from the north east after the afternoon rain.

Tide was still on the way down with good current flow. Set up my tackle and cast out. About half n hour later while i was having my dinner, my reel screech a few time. I pickup the rod and strike..can see a fish jump up from the water surface. I slowly reel in the line and a good size barracuda appear on the water surface. Take a quick look at the fish and it was deeply hook on the conner of it mouth. I ask my friend Simon to grab hold of my line leader and haul it up. Estimate it weigh near to 3 kg.

Just few minutes later, we heard another reel screech…It was Daniel reel. He strike the rod and slowly wind back. Surface up was a good size fingermark snapper almost 1 kg. Again it was Simon who grab hold of the line and pull it up. Daniel bait used was also a fresh tamban.
