It’s has been awhile since I fished both Saturday and Sunday on my kayak. Esp since my wife started her job with the immigration 🙂 Nonetheless, it was a chance not miss.
On Saturday, the trio, which consist of Merv da “Magician”, Ian aka Pearly and myself went out to the eastern part of Singapore to have a little bit of fun.. It’s was quite a sight to watch Merv pull up in his car with his Kayak strapped above it. Anyway back to the fishing. Off we went to the long stretch of breakwaters.
After awhile of Luring and Baiting, all we managed were weeds and corals LOL…
Then a crazy thought was to paddle to a particular lagoon and try fishing in there as the wave would be less rougher for us and off we went.
Along the way, the trio had regretted the paddle as it would be at least 2hrs before destination… At this point it was a no-return senario, rain was pouring but soon we arrived at the location…. Down went our prawns in search for our fish.. The rain had then died down along with the wind…
“tap.. Tap…” I had a bite I exclaimed … which inturn bent my rod double.. Watching 3/4 of my rod dipping and disappearing into the water next to me always give me the chills on what fish would be at the end of the line.. After a short while the first fish came up!! CHERMIN!!! Now that’s one for the bag.. my bag limit would mainly be 2 fish a trip.. One for myself and one for my grandma 🙂 So another 1 more to target..
Just then Ian had a bite as well… Chermin.. and now we were thinking we were going to hit into a chermin school once again!! Merv da “Magician” then decided to pull up his magic trick.. WHACK!! BARRA!!! After a short tussle.. My god it weight 4kgs on the Boga!! By this time, Ian and myself were all ready to go for the next fish..
But the magician didn’t give us any chance.. in the end, it seems that he was the one that kept on catching the fishes.. with a total of 2 chermins to me… 1 catfish, 1 ang cho, 1 grouper and 1 chermin to Ian.. And the magician had the last laugh of 7 CHERMINS!!! 1 BARRA of 4kgs.. and a very special catch of a Pompano of about 4kgs!!!
We were all then teasing him, that he must really be happy on catching all those fishes but in the process of losing 2 friends LOL… but it was all in good fun. A really happening day for Merv with lady luck showering him with fishes, with 2 happening friends.. What more can I ask for!!
This trip would go down as a historical moment for me to witness such a nice fish caught on the kayak!!
So the theme for the week.. Retro Black and White Photos!! OOoshh!!
Oh and Sunday I blanked!! Haha.. :p
