Halfbeaks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Post by Icylines » Tue Jan 06, 2015 5:33 pm

Was at labrador park to try out a couple of things
firstly egging,
this ended badly :D :D
lets just say i had one egi and it got caught in rocks
Then i intended to target some rabbitfish, however nothing showed up for well 5min HAHA
patience......patience....
After seeing Des T CR on all the halfbeak, i also want to try
bait was bread on a float with a foot length of leader 20lb
i dun know anything about halfbeak fishing so used whatever i had,
tackle was as light as i had tamban fishing rod with budget daiwa reel
:D :D :D :D :D
So decided cast out and then i remembered sunglasses really help so put on already can see water clearly
cast a couple of metres in front of me and bam i got a Bite!!!!
sry la no hookup :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
anyway cast few more times finally hook up my first ever HALFBEAK!!!
hehe i was so excited XD
In a matter of like 10 min hook up another two! Like so easy like that haha
No.... it was terrible hard and took lots of patience :) :) :) :)
It wasant much bringing home only 3 as the tide went down really fast and then it kinda started raining so no choice pack up even though halfbeaks were still biting
Sooo final results bring back 3
Will be Back for more

how to cook this fish can sashimi haha?? :p :p :p :p

Congrats of landing your first halfbeaks, they're fun to catch with added thrill in sighting for them. Yeah, a pair of polaroid sunglasses really helps to spot them as it filters away the water reflection. Do also look out for the other dominant halfbeak species; the ones with black dot/bars on their body. Good hunting! ;)

I used to do most of the handlining from shore but fishing spots are dwindling. I go on boat fishing once in a while, shore fishing can still be fun if you just want to go to the seaside to chill. :P
