Bedok jetty is one of Singapore most popular salt water fishing spot here. Located on the east coast of Singapore. The jetty was 300 meter long extended out to the sea where it give land base angler a very rare deep water place to fish. With the constant bait fish around daily, it also attracted big fishes to come close to hunt for food. Everyday round the clock there is always anglers there to “guard” this jetty hopefully to have some catches. Below is the result of the biggest catches and the sub species I have known up to date for this year.
