That's good news, that jetty used to be one of my favourite shore spots. I hope it's still as productive as before. :D

Went Lab Park on 2nd J?an 2017 morning. It was flooded with people! Mainly surf cast on both sides, mainly on right side of the jetty.

Played about 3-4 hours of ajing, zero fighter. It's not at high tide but rising tide.

Heard from my friend that when the jetty is closed, the could catch many species with ajing setup easily.

Anyone tried with good, or even decent results?

If you're playing light rock fishing, you need to be near the reef fringe or near the breakwater. Unfortunately, that stretch of the jetty is in the 'no fishing' zone. The reef edge is at the first shelter of the jetty. On the outer wing of the jetty(the legal zone) you can try casting with jigs to target for spanish mackerels, queenfish or needlefish.

I kinda figured where you're referring. While walking to the end of jetty will come across a shelter. Was playing there for 15 min or so until my friend point to me a no fishing sign 3 meters away from me...

There's now a red line demarcated on the floor near to the end of jetty. To clearly indicate start of legal fishing zone...

I was almost sure I'll not be going back there again, at least not for the time being. Now that you've dropped this advice, I think I'll make time for it again when tide/current is right.

You recon that jetty fishing would be most productive 2 hours before & after high tide? As for playing ajing, any tide/current/etc to aim for?

I would fish anytime when the tide starts coming in until the water starts to recede. If would be good if there's current flow, but it's been wacky since the land reclamation for pasir panjang port. If you see people landing tambans, it's another good sign.

The outer shelter on the right wing has been the most popular spot the jetty. If you want to do baiting there, you have to be early to catch a spot. I wouldn't encourage you to fish before the red line. Npark staff does periodic checks, and so far I've seen them giving verbal warning to those fishing illegally on the jetty. I wouldn't push my luck though.

Ive been there twice now. In terms of catch rate it is pretty slow. I prefer baiting with small prawn meat. The catch is mainly large size silver biddy and the occasional leather jackets. I did lose a couple good takes that either got snagged or bent out my hooks.

same, the catch rate there is very slow... dunno where are all the fishes... i think probably the renovation disrupted the ecosystem, thus not as many big fishes as before... did saw a huge barracuda sunning but it got freaked out by my lure and was gone...
Fishing is #AWESOME!!! :thumbsup: :D :fish: :fish2:
