Hi chanturtle, that's quite catch there. :) I've never been to Punggol Park before, let alone knowing there's Peacock bass(those small fishes on the right) there. How did you catch them?

The two big fish looks like some sort of cichlid, but most of us would have called it Tilapia or 'Japan Fish'. The body is pretty broad, like those of a green chromide.

Not a bad catch in all, how many of your friends were you fishing with?

Just a side note:
Although this site isn't pro-active in Catch and Release, we do encourage on no wastage of fish. If you decide to bring the fish back(dead), try not to let it go to waste (get thrown away). Your catch on the juvenile peacock bass probably can upset a lot of anglers who sees this as unnecessary and they should be release to be give a chance to grow bigger.

All the fishes in your catch photo are edible, do try them out. ;)

Hi Wenbin, welcome to HLF. :grin: I can't really give much advice without knowing what kind of fishing you do. Maybe you can do a little introduction here. :nod:

Hi Raymond, welcome to HLF. Thanks for the clarifications, I guess any park opened for fishing applies the same rules as that of reservoirs. So guys, do take note. :)

Can get fine for using bait. Try using the Burkley Gulp lure. Peacock Base love it.

Thanks for the tip, I've only caught peacock bass on hard lures so far. Then again, I hardly do any luring myself. :P Will try the Berkley Gulp one day. :)
