The Rig that seems to work

I've experiment with Paternoster and the likes .. however this one got the most biggie bites or attempts...

The leader from the boom is about 15" ...

Bedok Jetty

Night fishing at BJT .. was really quiet except this little critter - Brown Spotted Moray (actually it's more of a greenish spotted)
Took my "kelong sotong" Squid bait.. and gave a pretty good fight - poof goes my hope of a 4kg KBL.

After a "storm" in the middle of the night the morning (7-8am) yield pretty good catch... some freeding frenzy! My Surecatch stainless steel leader got sliced through by some unknown Being right after my rod bent like crazy ..bells ringging like no tomorrow...

Anyways landed a 2+KG , 20 inches long Talang/ Queenfish Scomberoides commersonianus (Lacepède)Carangidae.

Get this : Bait used - 2 weeks old Dead Tamban
Rig: Two Hook - Head (skull) and Tail

Got the fish at it's gills i guess that's causing the massive bleeding..

Sembawang Park

Headed out to Sembawang park for some Night fishing.
Did not get anything as i spent about 4 hours fishing... had two strong bites but no hook ups. Used live tamban - the biggie ripped the 10cm tamban off the hook in one snap. Also used Kelong sotong head. Anyways my best catch that night are these shots:
Fishing is about the angling and relaxation...

Kranji Dam CR

Kranji Dam is still a good place despite what everyone says.. see alot of surface activites of very obvious mama Tomans .. i didnt have that luck that day as i wen a little too late - about 8.30am
one bite and two PBs .. the spot i got the PB has many bites... spot is just to the right of the main entrance. Note that there are lots of weeds there but many fishes congregate there- just my observations

Anyway some history about Kranji reservoir areas:
Huge Oil Tanks set fire onto the sea.
Lieut. A. B. Watchorn, was an Australian Sapper officer of the 27th Brigade who was in charge of the blowing up of the oil depot at Kranji. The truck bringing the explosives came under shell fire, and itself blew up. Swiftly and silently, Watchorn and his sabotage squad set their explosives. The valves of the oil tanks in the yard were then opened so that the oil could run to waste. As the black torrent poured out the charges blew up and set it aflame.Flowing out into the Strait, it met the incoming tide, which carried it up the Kranji River into the slimy swamps where so many Japs were still stranded. A lot of them burned to death in this flood of fire. -- Source: "The Fall of Singapore" by Frank Owen, Penguin History.
