First CR after circuit breaker!

Post by gohyuheng »

Headed down today at 7 am in the morning armed with some live prawns! There was quite a bit of action and takes but no hook ups. I decided to jig for some tamban for surf.

At around 11am, my surf baited with a live kuning on LSBF had a good hard take! I was away jigging with sabiki but my friend help me set it and passed it to me. After pulling some drag, it was firmly stuck! I knew it had to be a ray, and my first decent sized one at that! I didn’t really know what to do so I just maintained tension for a good 10 minutes, before I started giving it a few pumps, and it finally moved! Landed it with a gaff before long.

3kg ray!

We had another good take on live prawn but it cut itself loose on the rocks after a good 10 seconds of pulling drag :(

Great job landing that beautiful ray, you really know your spot well. ;) The one that got away could be a tuskfish or a grouper.

Headed down today for a short trip, my friend landed a strange fish I’ve never seen before!

Any ID? I think it looks like a false trevally, from google images. It was quite large, I think exceeded a kilo on the scale!

Yes, I believe it's a False Trevally (Lactarius lactarius) too. I've never seen one before, that's an awesome catch by your friend. Do you guys mind if I use your fish photo for HLF?

Sure! I’ve asked quite a few people and no one had seen it before. Was very confused when the fish surfaced LOL.
