Green mussels (Cai Ruan) is a very effective bait. It also takes bread and prawn meat if you can't get the mussels, but not as effective.

Most likely yes, most fishes have patterns to help them blend into their natural habitat be it to hide fro predator or to ambush a prey.

Best places to catch big scats are probably those floating fish farms because there are lots of barnacles, mussels, and other food growing under the farm's floatation barrels. You got to be fast with them because they'll dash under quickly and your lines will be cut by barnacles.

Labrador and Bedok Jetty do have them but aren't very common. Woodlands Jetty is probably the best jetty to hunt for them.
