Recent Catch

Has not been fishing for quite some time and went back to my favorite rocky shore on Sunday afternoon. Response was quite good and as usual using small hooks. Below are some of the catches not bad for within two hours. Only took back the Sand Bass and the Bream the rest released. Surprisingly, the B...

I went to Kallang River behind blk 63 recently and was surprised to see a huge Toman around 2.5 ft long swimming on the surface for 15 sec. There were also huge catfishes surfacing for breath. Later I walked upstream towards Bendemeer Road and saw an angler casting artificial lure appearantly aiming...

Southern Rocky Shore

Pretty fun 3 hrs trip this afternoon at Singapore southern rocky shoreline. Caught 3 Blackspot Tuskfishes, 2 Anchor Tuskfishes and 1 Todak. The larger Blackspot Tuskfish was surprisingly powerful with its sudden rush I thought it was more than 1 kg but its actually probably 500g (actual length appro...

Re: Help ID all these weirdos...

Patrick2405, I used to catch a lot of these at the river beside Whampoa South Blk 49 (catch & released). First you need to throw lots of bread (don't waste food. use expired bread or bread skin) to create a frenzy then use a light sinker with 4 hooks. Many huge Tilapia (10 - 11 inches length) and Ci...

Re: no tilapia

Normally I threw small pieces of bread to feed the guppies and eventually created a feeding frenzy involving the larger fishes such as the Tilapia and the Green Chromide. Once the frenzy started, fishing is easy using a sinker with 3 hooks (with bread skin). I have not been fishing for Tilapia for q...

Re: Crabbing at bedok jetty

Around 2 months ago I did saw a huge crab (around 1/2 kg) caught using a crab net at Bedok Jetty (est. 50m from shore). It is one of those rectangular box net with entry from both side and split open from the middle. Quite tempted to try it myself.

Is Brown Spotted Moray Eel Edible?

My friend caught this Brown Spotted Moray and asked whether it can be eaten? If "yes", how to cook it? Thanks.

Caught this recently at Southern rocky shore of Singapore. I was surprised by the amazingly good meat quality (steamed).
