Spot: Changi CP6
Target: Marine Catfish (Duri)

While Azzahar was fishing at Bedok Jetty, two of our members, Saleh & Yan were fishing at Changi CP6 to target Duri.

As usual, Duri has returned to our spot and this time Saleh & Yan was fishing for a short time of two hours.

The two hours spent of fishing yields them a total catch of five duri of good sizes.

Date: 11 Dec 2007
Tide: Unknown
Spot: Bedok Jetty
Target: Garfish

Azzahar younger sibling, Asri, would like to learn fishing so decided to bring him to Bedok Jetty to teach him some fishing while I was still waiting to land in my first Garfish.

Setup rods and off we start fishing. Garfish was around but medium in size while Fidzah aims tambans with her tamban rod setup but it was hard to get due to ongoing low tide.

Since using a whole fish as bait can't get me a garfish on my noodle rod, soon i change tactics and revert to use smaller hook & floater with cut tamban meat as bait. Soon it was Garfish frenzy for me.

Tide: 2.8m
Spot: Changi CP 6
Target: Small Game & Big Game

December are one of the wettest months in Singapore but that doesn't stop Singapore Surf Anglerz team members from fishing.

The team met at usual spots at around four in the afternoon for an overnight outing. Rods, reels were setup and each of the individuals started pre-test fine tuning cum training cast using from Unitech to OTG to Pendulum technique before putting up the rigs.

Canvas sheets was put up to shield us from the cold night and I started to cast the first bait at 7pm sharp which were then followed by the others. I brought up the first fish which were followed by Yan, Saleh, Shedinja & Wak Ace.

Just like what we have expected, the temperature at night was so cold that some of the members were shivering.

Anyway enjoy the photos.

Azzahar - 2 x Duri
Saleh - 3 x Duri
Wak Ace - 1 x Unknown Bream / ACK species
Shedinja - 2 x Duri (Not in picture as it was brought home by his uncle)
Yan - 6 x Duri

Spot: Changi CP 6
Target: Baitfish

Firstly, Singapore Surf Anglerz would like to congratulate on the appointment of our new team captain, Shedinja and vice-captain, Saleh on 7 December 2007.

Saleh & Yan called me up to go castnetting with them at around Changi Beaches in search to get bait supplies for the next day overnight fishing at Bedok Jetty (BJT) just in case BJT tambans are not around or hard to get.

They reached at 6pm while I arrived at 8pm as I have just reached Singapore from Johor Bahru, shopping with my girlfriend family.

While Saleh decides to stop his castnetting, I still continued with my castnet while Yan caddied me till Changi Beach CP7.

Tua Bak, Flower Crab, Big Half Beaks, Pasir-pasir and table-sized ray were caught that night. Smaller rays which from my point of view which are consider small were released back.

Along the way, we managed to spend some of our time catching up with some of the anglers there to know what fish have they brought up. To our suprise, one of Singapore Surf Anglerz favourite all-time targets and food fish, the Marine Catfish which are commonly known as Duri have returned to our spots.

Yan was swearing himself for not bringing his rod down as Duri has came back. We witness that some of the duri which some of the anglers caught there was in the one to three kilogram range while one of the duri was about four kilogram plus.

Then, after castnetting, meet up with Saleh who was away talking with one of the anglers. Saleh too was frustrated that he suggest that, since Duri has returned, why not we hunt it tomorrow night instead of BJT.

Anyway, do stay tune if we managed to get the Duri at usual spot.
