Re: Pretty yellow Goby ID

Finally managed to ID the goby. Turns out its a species of watchman goby ambiguously referred to as the 'lagoon shrimpgoby' (Cryptocentrus cyanotaenia)

Re: BJT March/April CR- interesting catches

Thanks Peace! You're absolutely right, I frequent BJT cause I don't go offshore all that often and my interest is in landing different species. The thrill is definitely in the unknown for me, and BJT, while admittedly overfished- is perhaps one of the most convenient places to find a variety of spec...

Re: Pretty yellow Goby ID

I think this is similar to your yellow goby, but the hue on this one is much darker. https://i.ibb.co/Yd7Z1RN/IMG-20181110-122745.jpg This one does look very similar, except for one thing: It has blue dots instead of faint blue stripes along its body. Interesting though. perhaps they're watchman go...

That is indeed a juvenile bluering angelfish, nice find there. Was it trapped in a tide pool?
Yup. Usually I only find small Copperband butterflyfishes so I think this one might have gotten swept from reefier areas by strong currents

Re: Bluering Angelfish

Found a tiny juvenile barely an inch long during a lowtide fishing at Tanah Merah.

Pretty sure this is a baby Blue Ring Angelfish hahah

Re: Fish Identification

Looks interesting indeed, it's probably different from the usual black damselfish we catch. I will look try to look that up. This is pretty late, but I just caught one at BJT yesterday afternoon as well. Went to do some research on chromis and damselfishes and realized it's in a genus of its own- a...

Re: Pretty yellow Goby ID

I want to say this is a yellow shrimp goby but they have dots instead of those blue stripes. Nice catch but I'm not quite sure of the exact species. Thanks Peace. That's what I thought too.. perhaps an invasive species hahaha. If my memory isn't failing me I think I've seen them being sold at some ...

Pretty yellow Goby ID

Hi everyone, this is the third time I’ve caught this Goby species by accident on sabiki. Thought it was a yellow polka dot shrimpgoby at first but later on doubted it cause these have streaks on their cheeks and slender vertical lines on their body rather than dots. Anyone have any idea what this sp...

Re: Prickly Leatherjacket

Seems like these were more common back in the day. After a long fishing hiatus from Bedok Jetty, I started coming back to see what I could find. Finally encountered one rather large specimen(about 20-25cm) after going through hundreds of the more common and more plain-looking Leatherjackets over the...

Re: Map Puffer

Just a lil’ photo contribution of this gorgeous Puffer species. One of the more ornate species that’s pretty common in our southern waters from what I’ve seen (encountered them thrice so far) :)

Re: Fish Identification

I caught it on prawn meat, you can see that i caught a wrasse together with the Angelfish. Personally, i do not find squid very effective, if it were i can save a lot of money on bait. lol Ah. Thanks for your reply! I agree, I only use squid when the current is strong cause it's less likely to slid...

Re: Fish Identification

Your rig and bait is probably correct, it's just not as common as you may expect it to be. Apollo small hooks with prawn meat usually nails it. Welcome to HLF, SoggyCookies. Ah. Thanks Peace! You're probably right, plus they're usually solitary unlike the many schooling fishes around the jetty haha...

Re: Fish Identification

https://preview.ibb.co/jZficU/IMG_20180929_084644.jpg This is a lovely one that i caught today. A Blue Ring Angelfish. My proudest moment so far. Lol I saw an nice old chap land this at BJT earlier in 2018 too. Wanted to ask him what bait/setup he was using but forgot.. Mind sharing what you used? ...
