Yellowtails

Post by Peace » Tue Mar 20, 2012 7:49 pm

Hit a school of yellowtails this time, too bad I wasn't prepared for them. Lost several bigger ones that managed to straighten my tiny hooks. Hopefully they'll be still there when I return, I'll prepare some quality rigs. :mischieve:

Yes it does. When they're in a frenzy, feathered hooks works too. :)

I just deep fry them, they taste real nice! :D

Feathered hooks really does work, sometimes I get lazy and use it when they're willing to take it. But you'll find that it loses its magic short after. From my experience, nothing beats Hae Beoh when it comes to catching yellowtails. :mischieve:

You can find these small shrimps from wet markets, you can try teban garden or jurong west wet market if you're staying near west area.

Sorry, I can't disclose the location. If you're interested to catch yellowtails, you can try St John's, Kusu and Sisters' Island.
