Heh, looks like your tackles did a reverse role. :lol: Don't feel too bad, the catch might just get better on your next trip. I think the crabs are not interested to go into the crab trap anymore when they see the puffers are already in there.

Great effort and nice catch there. Admire you to be able to bring all the crab cage, rods and live prawns? along. Cant really imagine how your carry them :lol: :thumbsup:

It depends what you're targeting for. I was there a week ago looking around and I see people fishing for rabbitfish. The water was pretty clear during high tide and I can actually see the rabbitfishes swimming near the breakwaters at the viewing deck though the size isn't very big. If you want to catch those, you can use a floating rig with bread or small shrimps as baits.

That's quite impressive and you've got a parrotfish from there. :shocked: That place looks really good on high tide, I was there the previous week and saw quite a few rods parked along that section of the shoreline.

This is the place you're talking about right?
