Re: Tips for landing net

I'd choose a rope gaff over landing nets because it's much more portable, especially since I fish alone most of the time. It may be a little harder to hook the fish up but I'm sure it's possible. Also, you're not restricted by the size of the net should a biggie come ;)

Re: Crabbing at bedok jetty

I'm not sure if it's allowed, but I've tried it once, got a good sized flower crab.

Also managed to hook up flower crabs on rod and line while fishing there on several occasions, so there should be an abundance of those around.

Re: Tips for landing net

Personally I'd get a gaff over a net, the ones that can be tied to a rope.

Re: School of trevally!

It's lucky to hit a school like this but they don't often hang around very long along shoreline unless there's a concentrated source of food there. I often wish I can have an additional set of heavier tamban jig setup on standby for such encounter but it doesn't seem very practical. How strong shou...

School of trevally!

Was jigging for tambans (which were in low numbers), when suddenly hit a school of trevally!! The larger ones broke off my tamban hooks, but I managed to lend this few guys in 5 minutes :D http://i.imgur.com/jSGrEsE.jpg Looks like longfin trevally, 1 bumpnose and 1 queenie. Soon afterwards the schoo...

Once again thought it was a grouper... Yet another starry toadfish :cry:
It even looks like the one I caught a few months back!

Re: Short CR

Made a second trip to the same place... Huge hit and rod nearly flew in. I strike and the fish snapped my rod into 3 :( managed to unhook itself after that... Haiz

For LSBF you can hook the fish just under the dorsal fin to "cover" more of the fish
I find that the fish dies much quicker / tend to fly off when casting when hooking the body though!

Short CR

Managed to squeeze some time in the morning for fishing a few days ago hehe. Reached spot around 6 am, incoming tide. Immediately whipped out sabiki and jigged up some tambans for live bait. On my very first cast, landed a 6 inch talang queenfish, 5 inch bumpnose trevally AND a juvenile Spanish mack...

Re: Common Bullseye

Anyone knows if this fish can be used for anything? Caught a few while jigging for tambans, thought they were edible and brought them back but the site says ???

Re: Crabs as bait

Thanks guys!! Unfortunately met with no luck today :( I've heard of people smashing up the shell of the thunder crabs before hooking it? And does the effectiveness vary between live and dead crabs?

Crabs as bait

Anyone has any experience using crabs? Like flower crabs and thunder crabs. Recently got my hand a number of small thunder crabs, heard they can be used as bait. What rig, hook size should I use, and what fish will I be expecting?

Had the sergeant steamed with sour plums, flesh was actually very sweet and soft, though you were right about the stinky guts :confused:
