Big ray landed!

Post by gohyuheng »

Went down yesterday and was chased off my spot because it was super crowded... had to walk far down. Didn’t manage to jig much squid, and ended up only catch one. Baited it up on long snood and lobbed it out! Before even 10 minutes, my reel went screaming. After a long, one hour + fight with me and my friend swapping once in awhile, we landed our first huge ray!
We weighed it and it measured 16 kg!

Nothing even touched our market squid for the whole night. Goes to show how important fresh bait is!
I wanna catch a big fish~~~~

Congrats on landing this big ray, it must be a record for you. :beer: Agree that fresh sotong works wonders, it is a very effective bait.

I heard that the catches there are very good recently, hope you can get more biggies!
