Your reel and lines are good enough. 30lbs-40lbs flurocarbon shock leader should suffice for daytime Changi waters, u could also use them for shore fishing too, so u dont waste your lines :p

Yes ... reel and line good enough.

I would suggest you use your existing rod and try out this first trip.
If you enjoy offshore fishing then maybe can start looking for a rod to suit your needs and budget.
Of course you can always get one now to try out if you don't mind spending ... it's Xmas !

Santa clause is coming ... to ... town !
Make a wish ~ :lol:

OK regarding fishes ... let's spell out the rules here clearly to prevent disputes and unhappiness ...

Every organiser is different and for me ... I go by the rule ... all pay all share to be fair.
In this way ... if you catch many fishes ... good for you ... you get to bring back fish.
If you did not catch any fish ... don't worry ... we share the catches so no one go home empty handed UNLESS ...
everyone kosong or the catch that day is simply jialat ! :sweatdrop:

Usually I will let the rightful angler keep their big or special catch of the day.
And rest of catches regardless of landed by who and those caught by boatman will be shared among all anglers.

Hope you are ok with this arrangement.

Of course you can always tell me about it via a pm if you want op out of this arrangement.
We are flexible ... no hard and fast rule, just want a fun day out with kakis.
Opted out you keep everything you catch only ....

Bring a thick plastic bag and some newspaper to double wrap the fish.
If we hit frenzy ... then is ho seh liao ... it's time to party party party ! :music: :fish: :music: :fish2: :music: :fish: :music: :fish2:

Thanks dBs thats clear my mind of abt fishes caught...

I will still stick to your rule coz i found it great.... Coz we dont know wad we get on that day....
If get a lot then everybody will hv lots of lunch and dinner for the next few days if dont then we bite finger(gigit jari) ahr..
Abt the prize fish is oso fair in your rule coz u fish it and u reel it so u can opt to keep it...

So im fine with the rule...
Sorry to confuse u coz I'm still new to this sport...
