First time at pasir ris pond

Post by gohyuheng » Sun Aug 28, 2016 8:22 pm

So after a few very discouraging and sian trips with 0 catches, me and my dad decided to recce pasir ris pond as we had been hearing good stuff.

There was a small pond that provided rod, reel, bait and everything at 25 an hour, think it was called the skills fishing pond as we had to use pole rods to catch the fish.

Decided to give one hour a try... let the pictures speak for itself :p

My sister with the biggest golden pomfret landed! (Children can use rod + reel, also provided)

Total catch brought home

Lost about 3 fishes when they snapped off the line...
Saw others landing red snappers, ang chor and kbl, but I guess we only had luck for pomfrets :p
I wanna catch a big fish~~~~

The skill pond is a good place to see some action. :nod: Is this the first time your sister is fishing, she's got the newbie's luck! So did you have to use pole rod or rod+reel? :mischieve: Great catch overall.

I've brought her to jig for tambans as well as fish for swajiam, but other than that I guess it's her first real fish :p

Was initially quite worried seeing her work the rod, thought something was going to snap ::x:

As for me... I kind of just borrowed the rod from her once in awhile :whistle:

It must be fun to enjoy fishing as a family. I'm sure your little sister is now more hooked than ever. ;)

Not a really big fan of pond fishing but I agree that it's good family fun compared to empty handed trips :sweatdrop:

Was thinking of making another trip soon to the bigger pond this time, saw quite a number of snappers and kbl landed!
