Post by jack1986bibi » Sat Dec 18, 2010 12:56 pm

This Morning went fishing at Kranji Legal area and caught a Monster Catfish !!
See the size of this Fish and it was Caught by tamban hook !!! Was aiming for PB when I hooked this guy !!

OK haha Such a big fish cannot be possible be hook by tamban hook if you guy are wondering how hahah

Was Luring as usual when suddenly my rod feel very heavy, i thought sian liao so heavy confirm rubbish bag cos no fight , but hey when i reel it in i got this dead catfish......

Yah this Fish was already Dead by the time my tamban hooked foul hooked it !!! But nvm it was a great view for me as it goes to show there monster fish in Kranji reservoir, i place the fish at the edge of the stone for other people to view as i left at 9am

Well this is not thailand pond or whatever, this is singapore reservoir after all and it really a great size i think, look at the size of my sport shoe compare to this fish !!! And my shoe is very big de

That's a big patin(?). :nod: I've fished at Kranji Reservoir in the past and I do see big fishes surfacing lazily from time to time, I believe they're this type of catfish you've hooked up. What a nice haul, but I wouldn't think of eating it without knowing how it died or how long it has been in the water.

Can tell the fish was dead from it's colour and eyes.
But it still injected some excitement in us all ...
I didn't even know we have such beautiful fishes in our reservoir have you not shown us the pics.

Good luck, you'll never know ... someday you might just land yourself a live one ! :clover:
