Punggol Park Connector

Post by thomasfong83 » Wed Jun 13, 2012 7:47 am

Felt restless at night so decided to go bring my favourite rod to the park connector behind punggol park for a spin... was using dead prawn and not expecting to have any decent catch but to my suprise i saw a KBL swimming at the surface of the water...
Not long after my floater went into the water and i caught this ....

That's a very nice fish and it's good to see Punggol Park can still produce these sized KBL. It pays to keep your eye on the water, you'll know when to be more on your guard when the fish comes. ;)

Welcome to HLF thomasfong83 and thanks for sharing your wonderful catch with us.

Hi Thomas, Nice size kbl there, good catch :thumbsup:

That area is prohibited fishing grounds as per NEA,however, I too seen lots of regular chinese national and retiree fishing there.As i am staying nearby there,my advise is that better check before taking the risk.Anyway nice catch. :D

I think the black cobra you saw is the one i seen during my guard duty days at Lim Chu Kang Camp.Anyway,this reminds all fisherman to be wary of our enviroment around us before fishing.Catch the fish but don't let the fish catch you :lol:

Nice catch there. If I am not wrong, the longkang there is now leading to a reservoir (Serangoon Reservoir) and not out to the sea anymore. So suprising to see that KBL still surviving there, I was trying to hunt for a peacock bass there instead haha..

Wow nice catch. Ya the connector like no longer connected to the sea, used to hear from uncles who fished there say got alot 8-12kg kims. Guess some of them still surviving because they can adapt to fresh water. And you might want to hide your face from the pic, I also not sure whether NEA can catch you like this anot, just to play safe :sweatdrop: .

I think he mentioned using dead prawns. But be careful because the place had turned into a reservoir since they build the dam (DAMN!!), and so I supposed fishing with bait is illegal, not too sure about luring.

This fish i caught before the dam was built..btw now this place is fresh water but still i see KBl swimming there,just that i got other better spots to fish so not worth fishing in that NEA pond... ;)
