While I was stuck here in Sydney and the horrible low pressure system, weather,and fishing, Justin was happily off in Singapore. We are happy to report that he has broken the fishing draught (and the lack of Singaporean local food) on his last trip to the Sunny Garden City we call our Homeland.
Here is a copy of the Email sent to me while I was busily typing away at my desk.
See the pics =)
I actually wanted to just go to Sydney for 2 weeks in early Oct, but looking at the fishing, I'm gonna have to do a week in Sydney and the other in SG =D Wanna join me?
The 8 groupers and 1 ACK were caught at singapore river. They've sealed off the mouth of the SG river at Marina South and it'll become fresh water soon, so we went there to clear as much fish as we can. The small golden trev and fingermark were caught at the SAF yacht club where my fren - Jeffery has his boat parked. I hooked on to a runaway train on Mon night but it spat the hook. Jeff also told me that there are Giant Herrings and Milkfish on the calm mornings....bring the flyrod next time. The net of a neighbouring kelong broke a couple of weeks ago and they landed over 200 pcs of the escapees. The fingermarks are almost always around and 6 - 8 pcs per night is not uncommon. As the water isn't very deep, using the flyrod with live prawn is a very attractive and viable option... heheheh.
I was there at 3pm and fished till 530pm. Only found out that I left one section of my rod at home after I reached the place... but luckily, I had a spool of 10lb vanish and opted to do use it as a handline... good choice... hit an ACK before the rain came, and then the Goldie and another ACK after the rain... lost a pretty good sized one as well... all in less than 2hrs of fishing (discounting the rain). Went back there at 930pm - 12mn... lost one (line snapped) and dropped one (the runaway train).
Can't wait till Sept/Oct!!!!!!
