Macritchie @ Dawn

I took these pictures 2 years ago, so sorry for the low-resolution photographs. Had a small SD card back then and couldn't hold much photos. http://img215.imageshack.us/img215/5720/dscn53010vq.jpg http://img215.imageshack.us/img215/8875/dscn52969kg.jpg http://img215.imageshack.us/img215/416/dscn5293...

Oh, I can emphatise with that (the slime). I had a very bad experience with an Estaurine Moray Eel once, and when it came out of the water, it entangled itself around the line, took us a hard time to remove and worst of all, it coated the leader line with a thick layer of slime/mucus that smelt real...

Thanks so much for the trouble posting up the various pictures and taking your time to explain to me, guys. Btw, I'll be going for an offshore at the South China Sea on 20 - 22 Jul. I'll share the thrills and spills and the pictures in here when I get back. And the fish dishes look rather yummy, I m...

Thanks. I didn't know that the Black Eel Tail Catfish and the Duri were the one and the same.

Thanks. By the way, octopuses can be freezed and de-frosted just before use right? Does it affect their performance?

I've managed to ID it against pictures on the net (I think so) as a Malaysian Mahseer, though one of my experienced angler friends said that this was a "grunter". Another source sho...

(I'm a real noob to fishing :( ) However, I've never seen one before, so can s...
