Date: 21 April 2008
Tide: 2.8m
Spot: Changi CP 7
Target: Big Game

Man called me for a last minute compulsory fishing reservist recall just before I was going out for some unimportant matter at 7.40pm.

Prepared my stuff and met him at the carpark where I parked my bike. Ride over to Changi Village to buy some sinkers and lightsticks and off we go to spot.

When we reached there, we were suprised that there were quite a handful of anglers fishing. There were around three sets of anglers which includes a family fishing with their wife and daughter nearby the toilet with around 5 rods. 2nd set of two anglers on the way to packed up their stuff and went home and the other set of angler with two rods, were fishing beside us.

Tide was rising when we set up our rods. Man casted his bait first; a big fresh frozen size pasir-pasir which we bought it alive at Gary shop last Saturday in Changi Village for the last Saturday short timed fishing outing with Man.

So since there were no bait fish around for me to use as bait, I took one of Man ready hooked fresh squid bait meant for his big game and use casted it away.

Once everything is settled, I caddied Man for some netcasting session in order to get baits, tonight was a good tide and we managed to land in good sizes of tua bak; tamban malam for bait. I was suprised to see that the sizes of the tua bak has grown bigger rather than the past outing netcast catch few months back.

After a few netcast, Man landed in a good size Kapas-kapas which he casted from the knee deep water depth.

Soon Man saw my rod was pulled and and asked me to check my big game setting rod. Once reeled in, I caught an acceptable size Duri. Man later told me that this Duri are so greedy that it swallowed a big chunk of squid bait with big hook as compared with its mouth size.

As Man needs to go to work the next morning, we stopped fishing at around 1am completing our 4 hours block of fishing outing.

Enjoy the photos.

Date: 02 March 2008
Tide: 2.8m
Spot: Changi Puaka Beach
Target: Big Game & Small Game

Tonight were relatively fun fishing and a last minute decision to fish. Met Man Kerapu at the foot of my residence and of we went to spot.

After buying baits and drinks, we reach the spot at near to 2300hrs. First cast, I brought up an Usat which I released it unharmed. Later that night, my bad cough returned and was coughing badly so I decide to rest a bit after taking some strepsil lozenges.

This time was Man Kerapu who caught the most fish. He caught at least 8 of gelama. As for me, I caught an Usat on small game and Eel damaging my big game rig.

Enjoy the photos.

Cast: Azzahar & Man Kerapu
Date: 02 March 2008
Tide: 0.7m
Spot: Pulau Ubin 2524
Target: Big Game & Small Game

Man Kerapu called the night before stating that he was a bit sad to stay home seeing his family members grieving with sadness after Man's grandmother passed away on Sunday.

Intention to fish short time at Eastcoast but thinking of leng being put up during the day put us to reconsider. So the ideas of fishing either at Changi Carpark 4 or 7 was finally decided.

Once parked my motorcycle at the motorcycle parking lot at Changi Village, off we went over to Gary's to buy baits and necessary stuff such as drinks and food. Saw Raimi sitting at a chair near Gary shop while awaiting for Asyiq to arrive. Ask them where they are heading to, they informed us that they are heading to Pulau Ubin for cycling.

Pulau Ubin suddenly hit an idea for me to reccee a new spot with Man Kerapu. With low resources we have right now, Man Kerapu was shocked upon hearing and was swearing that even his national service army reservist unit recalls are not like what I made a sudden change of idea.

Hehe, but in the end, both of us went to Pulau Ubin and started reccee for new spots. We thought of getting a transport to ferry us to a nearby spots and they asked for $20.00 to and fro from the jetty.

We relented due to the expensive price and we decided to walk. Off we walk to spot and entered a kampung through a path and we just walked and walked till we found a beach. The beach was clean and there were few bottles around, no leftover baits, no used hooks nor fishing lines so we just made an impression that this spot might be known only to a few anglers.

Spot was full of potentials even we were fishing at low tide 0.7m. My big game was hooked by tekuk when Man saw my small game rod was pulled strongly once till 90 degrees by a fish either by a big size grouper or siakap and half of the leader was cut by rocks structures under sea. Once he ran to my rod, it was too late by then.

With its tide, I managed to land and then release all catches due to its small size. Once we finished fishing, Man says that this spot really have its potential should the tide is perfect.

Enjoy the photos.

Hi Guys, ever heard of OGGI Singapore? This is a website about the one-stop shopping promotion guide.

I have just surf through the web page and was excited to know that there are such webpage exist from Singapore giving web surfers and consumers like us ton of informations & promotions such as discounts and good deals that we the consumers didn't know.

In this pages, there are lots of user friendly categories which allows me to view the links easily.

It actually help us to save some of our extra hard earned money through their ways of posting up promotions in their website before we decides to make purchases.

For example, I didn't knew that when we ride our normal SBS buses, there are such thing as promotion to redeem and bid for 3 days 2 nights holiday resort stay to Bintan Lagoon Resort by SBS Transit listed in OGGI Singapore.

On top of that, from what I have viewed the hot category which contains a red star beside the caption of "Fashion", I guess your wife or girlfriends will be the most tempted to it as there are lots of promotions going on from John Little Mega Expo Sale and other promotion going on in Singapore from 3 April 2008 to 13 April 2008 at Singapore Expo Hall 5.

Well, for us avid anglers who loves fishing overseas either to Australia or Bangkok might be tempted at looking for the good bargain price of Air tickets under the "Airfares" category which allow us to travel to the country at a good deal price.

What I should commend OGGI Singapore for their creative and innovative ideas are, each consumers like us could just easily surf through OGGI Singapore website and save our precious time to choose what promotions and deals are going on by just clicking under each different links of categories that we are looking for from OGGI Singapore.

Who knows, in future, you might see our hobbies collections and gears, which is the Fishing, might just ended up in OGGI Singapore website and giving us, anglers, lots of information on good deals and promotion going on such as fishing trips and fishing tackles.

Thumbs up for the OGGI Singapore.

P/S: For those anglers with newborns and young toddlers, from what I have seen in OGGI Singapore, Pampers Active Baby are giving 30% discount this April 08.
