Last night went fishing again after having a rest for almost a month. Not very nice tide but luckily still able to land a 1.7kg grouper. Considered very lucky as the tide was not really moving at all.

Early Morning Fishing

Today I went fishing as early as 2.30 am. I went 3 different spots to fish. First I went to the market jetty. After half an hour fishing there, it started to rain.
At 3.30 am I switched my spot to the SCOW jetty as the rain still haven't stop. There I got a few pulls but only able to land 2 small groupers weighting 250g each. I got really unfortunate there as my line was broken due to the heavy pull of a fish although I am using Berkley 80 lbs line.
At 6.00 am I switched my spot to the area behind Community Hall. I got lucky there as I was successfully landed a 1.1kg red snapper after I casted my line in 2 or 3 minutes. That's my catches today after 4 hours of fishing.

1.1kg red snappers & 250g groupers each.

After Rain

Went fishing last night. Started around 7 pm. Around 7.30 pm a heavy pull of my line but when i tighten my line, it suddenly went silent. Luck was not on my side, my line broken because of the corals and rocks under the water.
Around 10.30 pm it started to rain heavily. We have to wait until the rain stops at 11.00pm. All of us started to cast our line. My father just have to wait around 10 minutes then his line started to pull and after a few fight, a 2.4kg grouper was successfully landed. Luckily the line did not broke although the line got major injuries due to scratches by rocks and coral. What a nice sample.

Then, a week later on the 14/8/2010 I went again to the same place at 3.30 am and needed to wait until 6.00 am to land a 1.1kg red snapper.

And last night my father and I went again to the Sandakan jetty. The weather and the tide was very nice. We arrive there at 7.00 pm. Ah Wah, our friend was already there when we arrived there.
It was quite lucky as I managed to land a 1.7kg after only 30 minutes I started fishing.
Not long after that was my dad's turn to land a 1.6kg red snapper and following by a 1.1kg grouper. Ah Wah was the last to land a 600g red snapper before we went home.
It was quite a joyous night for everyone of us.

29/4/10 UPDATE!!!

Went fishing last night with my father and Ah Wah. My father was the 1st one to land a 1kg sembilang not long after we arrive Scow. Nearly 1am then it was Ah Wah's turn to land a small 400g red snapper. He gave it to me. Thanx. A few minutes later there comes my turn to land a 800g grouper. Ah Wah was the last guy to roundup our trip with a 2kg++ grouper. It was a wonderful night for all of us indeed as no one was going home empty handed.
