A Memorable Day with Uncle Fong ... Simon says tide sweeh !!

Post by dBs™ » Sat Oct 03, 2009 1:35 am

Simon says tide sweeh ... tide sweeh .... Changi Offshore anyone ?

This is going to be an extremely memorable trip shared by the lucky four; dBs, Simon, Oinky & Loomis. :nod:
It will probably keep us talking about it for a long long time ...
The fight, the joy, the excitement, the cheering, the competition among ourself ... the list goes on ...

It was kinda last minute booking ... a date which was not our first choice.
But since it's Simon says tide sweeh ... sms were send out to all kakis.
Eventually ... the lucky four had an experience of a life time together ! :thumbsup:

Early in the morning ... merely reach spot ... I was still setting up my rig and the first round of cheers came loud and clear ...
"Simon tio hurr liao ! " 0.o
He is always this fast ... or is he smelling extremely chow chor today ?
A nice size guhood landed.

Quickly ... all had dropped lines by now and awaiting for their turn ...
Before I could settle down ... "Simon kor zai tio hurr liaoz !" :S
This time ... it's a beautiful chermin !
A catch which really shot our spritz and confident up to 100%.

It went on like this ... each taking turns to bring up some nice shiny mirrors.
A total of 15 shiny mirrors collected by us at the end of the day.
Another record broken ... our last best was 11 chermins on our very first trip with uncle Fong.

Spritz was high to the max ...

We felt like uncle Fong taking us going round visiting Changi fishing pond.
First to Chermin pond ... then to ang zhor pond ...
Next to grouper land ... last to GT fields ! :shocked:
Can choose de worr ... lol ! :lol:

Jokingly ... we asked for threadfin holes ! :drool:

We almost got our wish answered !
While chatting with Simon and loomis ...
Loomis had a strong take which send him jumping up on his feet.
Line flew out of his spool in a strong steady speed ...
Uncle Fong came rushing over to help ...

Did we land the monster ?
Look out for the videos. ;)

An extremely memorable trip we had.
It's non stop action since morning ... almost loh jiak loh jiak with small intervals for rest.
Each time we approach the live well for prawns ... our heart miss a beat.
Stock running low ... and it's merely past noon time.

Each landed a minimal of 4 fish.
Simon won the high achiever award .... a personal best of 15 fishes, 7 Chermins ! :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I had a wonderful time competing with uncle Fong.
We landed fish together one after another ... it was such a close race.
I lost with 2 fish at the end of the day with uncle Fong scoring a nice 13 fishes !

Loomis had his share of fun with Queenie while oinky played with trevalley.
All had a good time laughing and cheering each other on.
Several biggies got away ...
I even had one which straighten my hook ! :rant:

We had such good time ... enjoying every moment of it to the max ! :nod:

Alright ... I know ... pics more interesting ...
But ...
There were not many pics coz I was quite busy fishing. :D

Instead ... how about some nice cool video of the guys in action ? ;)

It was a day we were really tired out from fishing.
We didn't really take lunch as the weather was a little hot during the afternoon ...
and water condition was kinda choppy in the morning.

Suppose to have 8 anglers for this trip ...
eventually it melt down to just the four lucky ones.
Each time I face with this kinda situation ... I get a surprise CR at the end of the day.

And it happened again. :clover:

Woofie would love to join us for sure ...
But due to some personal reasons ... she will have to give this a miss.
She was already waiting for us at the Ferry Terminal with big bags.
We went over to the restaurant opposite the Ferry Terminal for dinner.
Celebrating our good harvest from Changi waters, now ... who says Changi bo hurr ehh ? :lol:

We had one Chermin fried and another grouper steamed with chai poh.
The way they prepared the fish was great, food was tasty and most importantly ... the price was right.

Till our next trip ... it will be Novemeber 2009 ~ :yay:

This s the video which captured the moment loomis got poison !

We were chatting and suddenly he got a hard take.
Next thing we know ... the rod was in "good" hands !
However ... a lesson learn from this episode ... don't look down on Changi fishy !

Don't try to bully them with light tackle !

The greatest fear using light tackle in Changi waters ... a monster taking your line out for a free ride ! :lol:
