Wat-The-Fish, Aunties Pond Gathering 11/02/12


One fine day, I decided to pop by WTF forum and went into their chatroom. It was then the ever friendly guys did their friendly hellos and it told me there was one slot left for their simple yet fun gathering at Auntie’s Pond. After sounding out the idea with Sharon.. I decided to join the gang at the pond 🙂

I had my reservations on going pond fishing as for almost the pass 8years of pond fishing. It has proven that I won’t catch anything at all.. I call this the pond fishing curse for me. As I tend to catch more fish on my kayak. In any case, I will just go and enjoy myself.

As the days counted down.. the excitement grew and it was finally the day. The Saturday had arrived.. Along with Sharon, we picked up David and went to have our breakfast and meet up with all the rest of the guys.. One by one all of them came and we all had a hearty breakfast before heading off to the pond eagerly. To make it more interesting there was a side bet for the winner of the biggest catch and most catch for the day.

We arrived early and set up our gears.. and off we went.. it was not that long before the first fish was landed and more and more… Sharon & myself were unlucky as we both missed out on 2 fishes to start. However throughout the day, the curse was lifted.. We ended up with 5 Snappers in total and won the overall pool.. With both the biggest and most fish caught.

We were lucky that we had one member called Roland that came by to take photo for us that day.
You can view the full set of photos here

I’ve extract some photos from that album so please check it out 🙂

My first Redtail Cat on a grub


After almost about 60hrs in total of hard work. I finally managed to land my first RTC at farmway 3.
It took a white grub on a slow crank just by the shallows. It also broke the ‘duck’ on my first customised marble rod. I was overall very very happy.. Both with the catch and also the performance of the blank 🙂 HAPPY HAPPY DAYS!!

Tight lines to all and I hope you guys will hit your desired fish target for 2012!

Mathew
