中学時代、明石の防波堤で親父に教わったの をきっかけに始めた釣り(主に投釣り)をシンガポールでン十年ぶりに始めました。釣れる魚はかなり風変わりで当たり外れも 多いで すが、息子とのコミュニケーション及び仕事の合間の息抜きでもあり楽しんで自然と戯れています。それでは始めましょう。
[1st January 2016]
first fishing trip this year may be a little later for
private matter here and there to be
settled first of all. We wish you to
have nice and enjoyable angler life
this year as well.
[2nd January 2016]
trip was unexpectedly decided by my son and his wife who
satisfied to their catch at their
previous trip. In fact,
I should joint their
previous trip to fishing pond but due to my flue
condition, I could not make
it and they tried alone
my son tried and his wife just
sit whole night as there was
only one rod available with
bait and provision
were prepared for 3 persons
and left home 5:00am by
arrived at destination
(Marina South) around
5:30, set rod with
float and ready
our new year
As expected, there were no fish signal till sunrise (my rig had earth hooked once when I was away from my rod for short while, seemed some rock fish had bitten and hide in the rock.
Our first catch at around 7am was by his wife, that was small Indian snapper, she was so excited to meet with this first catch, 2nd was also by her but Sergent fish, suggested her to release it.
Then my son, myself, caught halfbeak, wrasse, Tusk fish, Smallmouth Scad,Garfish. Who was really enjoyed is his wife as this is her first fishing in Singapore and first busy catching experience. As I was aimed rabbit here, my rig had small split shot on line and avoid halfbeak, made frequent swing back and managed to hook small rabbit at around 9am, even small, its pull was still resistible but this was released, 2nd hook was around 10am, decent size of about 20cm,I really enjoyed its strong pull by the new rod and kept in the cooler box as my son will shave and clean those fishes nicely (he is good at fish cooking). During the fishing, rain was on and off but we could still continue as raincoat were prepared, but just before noon, my son call me to look at dark sky far east was coming this way. Called off today without hesitation, packed up gears and ran to the shelter at ferry terminal. As my son's sandal thong was snapped off, he was to walk with bare legs and managed to catch up with us, eventually we made it, reached under the shelter just before rain became strong.

|Not my favorite but my son's as
he has not tried previously, our 1st trial trip to one
of local reservoirs with no high hope as I did not
expect any great catch with plastic toy unless
abandoned fishes are there.
Starting from 1pm after lunch at local western restaurant. We went down to next to floating stage and hunt begun. Front, right and left then moving towards wooden deck in front of main car park, repeating this movement under the scorching sun-ray, burning skin and bearing to go to toilet, no fish signal, no chase and no bite. I only caught just a information from primary school boy angular who said one of apeh fished there caught tilapia by using bread bait. I told him, he should not use raw bait here, he could use only lure in this place. He just smile and left there. We also pack the gear at 4pm and back home by bus. Hopefully I may be able to return Marina South or similar geographic shore line for iso fishing one of these days.
[30th October 2016]
younger son's schedule was met and we all long waited
this opportunity, decided to try new location, that is Marina Barrage.
Woke up 5:30am, packed necessity quickly and go. Reached at the destination 6:20am, preparation and setup done, started to wet line before 7am.
1st fish after long wait came to see me was Sargent, must went back home. Then my first good bite was around 7:20, shown off to my son and his wife the nice rod bent and smiling face, in the end the fish had found the way home by him or herself. That was decent size rabbit I was waiting. Even I have enjoyed the strong pull enough but too much play never game me chance to see the fish face.
2nd bite was around 9am, no more play, without giving any chance, the rabbit was landed, rather smaller but long waited one. 3rd came to me at around 10am, hooked with nice and familiar strong pull, trying to escape deeper water with no mercy, bent rod was bending further, however, my one step ahead rod control won this time. The size is 23cm, not record updated but gave me a fun. My last decent catch was Parrot with strong pull like a bullet as usual. Eugene and Abby also had many bite and caught variety of fishes. Most small catches were C&R and some in the cooler as follows, today's catch:
will be at tomorrow's dinner table, thank you to my wife Maria for the preparation and cooking.
