Changi Waters on SC3188J ~ March 2011

Yes, this trip was booked specially for Simon. :cake:
The first time he is celebrating it fishing with uncle Fong.
Will be heading North later tonite for round two. ::x:
We should be back by the time you get to read this belated CR ... hahaha

Scott & Junior get to tag along for this trip.
Glad that Junior enjoyed the boat trip.
Walked in and out of the cabin keeping me very very busy.
Poor Scott had to hold on tight to position worrying he will get pull into water by Junior. :lol:

Uncle Fong got a new sounder, something which we did not have for last two trips.
A very interesting sounder, love the beep beep ...
It has a fish icon that crawls across the screen signaling the nearing of fish school !

Catch rate kinda slow ... but those landed were good sizes.
Steven's red rod finally broke it's dry spell ...
Not only that ... it landed the VIP, Mr Harry Hotlips.
It was indeed a nice surprise, and he gladly offered it on the dinner table.
Thank you. :gift:

Another fun filled trip with some very good kakis.
The fishing was fun, the boatman was experienced, the food was good, the kakis is the best !
Next trip will be in May ... till then ... tight lines all ~ :clover:

This trip is like an all-out battle, everyone brought their best arsenal. :D Most of the fishes are quite big in size and of quality, I guess the most interesting catch would be that harry hotlips. We don't often see them anymore. :nod: An exciting fight on the chermin by woofie, good job there. Tighten the drag somemore and don't be afraid to flex the rod. ;)

Happy birthday SIMON ~ Heres a :cake: and :gift: for you ::x: . Hope you enjoy your day with us ~

Yea man ! stress man ! all have new weapons ! earthshaker, alexander, greenie predator ~ with stelllaaaasSSSSsssss ~ :( The fishes sure do know how to choose, love biting on gadgets :D Speaking of gadgets, uncle fong does have one too, depth sounder ! The "cannon" of all the weapons, without it, you are really handicapped. :p

One thing that amuse me was that, whenever i took a rest and drink some water in the cabin. The 2 westies will look at me, seems like an indication that they are thirsty i thought to myself ? Ask dBs for their water out and fed them. They slurped down tons of water immediately ! Cute dogs ! :lol:

Dinner was great ~ love the herbal prawns ~
Pity that they changed their chef, most of the dishes taste different from the previous. :o
Fishing is unquestionably a form of madness, but happily, for once bitten, there is no cure. --Francis

The dogs are thirsty because they keep tasting the sea breeze, watch the video again! :mischieve: The harry hotlips is supposed to be an 'average' fish and not as desired as typical snappers but I've heard differently as well. Maybe those who were at the dinner table that day can shed some light on this subject. ;)

hahaha ... I have a pair of water boys.
Never had to "beg" them to drink water.
One big bottle of water just for them ... sometimes not enough.
And the weather was pretty hot that day causing them to drink even more.

About Mr Harry Hotlips ... should be an excellent eating fish.
But after tasting it ... I am having doubts about it's meat quality.
It could be the bad cooking coz the restaurant changed their chef.
Food wasn't the usual standard, in fact most didn't taste good except for the prawns.
Or it could be that the fish was a little "big" thus the tougher meat ?
Will need to give it another try should we land it again.
It's the first time we landed My Harry, VIP !
So I wonder when will be the next time we get to taste it's Angelina Jolin lippy ! hahaha
