after many mths of no fishing, finally i get to fish last night, with jigger

despite raining the whole day, till night, we still proceed

here is the link to the fishes pic
http://www.fishingnewsroom.com/viewtopi ... =6&t=20552

jigger start fishing at 7pm+, i was still having dinner with my family
before i reach tmj, jigger already got a mj

after pay up and buy live prawn, down goes my commando prawn

hmm, think less than 30mins, i got my first hook up
up come a kim, less than 1kg size

down goes 2nd commando prawn
found my 2nd fish within another half hour, hehee

it is all quiet all the way later
miss a fish while i waited too long, my prawn kana stolen and float return to me, argghh...

me 2:1 fish

when is fish release time, me and jigger go try parking infront the cage
most of the time, didnt get anything oso lah, but yesterday just go try

lost my prawn due to a stupid snag at the cage... :ha....:
reload and drop my next commando prawn into the drop zone again, while zigger moving away
saw my signal to strike from my commando
up come a strong fighting kim, and score now is

me 3:1 fish

mr desT came just in time when i was tying up the fish
and sky start to drizzle non-stop (maybe he didnt bath thats why...)

end up, all 3 of us hiding under shelter fishing
desT, as usual, lotsa thing to talk about, and due to the drizzling, can't really see my float well
under the reflection of the poor lighting

night is wet, and cold
and when i'm back from toilet, jigger got 1 kim, from bottom, not bad

i continue to drift the float aimlessly without any hope as desT is still talking non-stop
have to entertain him loh, bo bian, hahaaa

anyway, when i turn and try to look for my float, didnt see it, and can't really see well
just sit down relax, slowly reel in and feel some movement, Strike!

gotcha!! it is a good fighting mj, though it is barely 1kg, it fights better than kbl

so score is me 4:1 fish

it is coming to 2am, desT think is time to go home, he got a fishing comp to go, he is a retired fishing champ if you dun know

and when the rain drizzle slow down, both me and jigger start to patrol the pond again

we split into 2 direction and ****, i lost another commando prawn again near the pump...

me 4:2 fish

i think i should get 1 more fish be4 packing up for the day
so i drop my prawn into the war zone again

within minutes, it Strike again

counting down, tighten up slack line and it's time for me to Strike
and this time, this fish pull solid, totally different from the 4 fish i caught earlier
this one is a fighter, my drag was being tighten a few times

after another few minutes of struggling, i manage to land it
this taiwan ngor is longer than the 1.5L minieral bottle

time to pack up!

final score, me 5:2 fish


i get jigger to come fish in this war zone
be4 i leave, see him struggle with another monster!!

so i decided to kpo until he land the bugger
it is another taiwan ngor, another good size fish!

so time to leave, wind is blowing strong and it is getting colder

when i woke up this morning, saw the sms from jigger
he got another bigger taiwan ngor after i left, good job buddy!!

so this week, he can fried, steam, boil, etc a mixture of kim, mj and ngor for all his meal.

:YEAH:

What an exciting night at TMJ, you probably could get a lot more fish if not for the rain. That's a pretty good score against the fish, you win some and you lose some. ;) Jigger is one of energizer battery, I wouldn't be able to fish this long and in this cold weather. :sweatdrop: Glad he made a comeback in the end, very nice catch report. :)

Red drums are pretty good fish, but perhaps being farm bred the fish won't taste as good as farm bred barramundi. Just a guess though, I never tried a red drum before. I heard they set the aerator to turn the opposite direction, do you think it has any affect on the catch rate and hiding spots of the fishes?

LoL , Energizer...

I think the direction of the pump does affect the hiding places for fishes...

Red Drum's meat very hard...
