As I apologised as I could not remember much of the full story, let's just view the pictures. Flathead which weighs 1kg taken on whole pasir-pasir bait, Marine Catfish aka Duri which weighs 2.4kg taken on fresh cut squid and Spotted Sickle Fish weighing 2.9kg taken on wat-wat cocktailed with sarong worms.

A report extracted from Fanatics Malung Boyz.
Ok let me start off on a trip wit the SSA bros last friday which was Good Friday. Well basically fishing trip with the Singapore Surf Anglers, SSA, on the 21st Mar almost got into a successful one when Bro Yan (kecik) got hooked on a stingray which he fought at approximately 30-40mins. And the story goes....
Met Jali and the gang at 5pm at Changi Village. Heard wat wat (wormy kind of bait) was in store so we got at least 8 packs for the night for us. I brought two weapons fo the night. Lotsa smallies were haul by my dad's rod, Shimano holiday spin, like usat(belongs to a catfish family) and mempinang. We had some bbqed stuffs fo the night tht were brought by my newly made friends thr. A few hours later, while everyone were changing baits, and i was reeling in my line, i heard someones drag being pulled, pulled non stop! Bro Yan saw and reach out for the rod quickly before anything happens. It wasn't his rod actually but its one of his friends. The owner of the rod were busy with some stuffs. He then gave the fish a hard jerk, it still swam away, further. It then begin to caught everyone's attention. The rod almost give way but Bro Yan played with its drag professionally.
After a long long fight, the fish was finally on sight. Were we relieved to see what fish and how big it was. I was happy at first. It roughly weighs around 15-20kgs. No one had gaff to bring this monster up, so i was appointed to jump over the railing to drag the fish to the 'much better area' for bringing this sandray up. Lotsa hiccups were seen like the line went into the rocks, so i hadda meddle with things down thr with Jaliboy's a.k.a Sean Kingston rod, as how to bring up as the tail could give you a nice whip to send you to the hospital and so on. The ray were still on when we're at the above mentioned area, so i tried whole means lik trying to hold and grab its tail, poking in thru its eyes, nothing could possible been done. So poking through its eyes, halfway, is the best choice at tht point of time. I still could remember how shaky i was when trying to lift tht monster up.
The moment of truth, the ray got off. Not by snap of line, but i think its the hook part, didn't went in properly. This all happened after the rod tht i was holding on to tht poked into its eyes slipped. Then it swam away. Its life is still longer. Up till now, I can't forget that very incident.
