Woke up today and craving for Hong Kong style coral trout. Yum yum, it has been a while that I had this for dinner. Still can’t forget my first coral trout on Nikko soft bait during my previous boat fishing trip Singapore!
So itch and wanted to catch some more coral trout on soft baits for dinner.
Getting Ready For The Tenya & Nikko Soft Baits
Called Yusof and ask if he is working today. Good news he just came back from night shift and today is his off day. So I ask him to join me to catch a coral trout for dinner.
We went to fishingbuddy to grab 300g of live prawns (just in case the fish don’t eat the soft baits) & some new Nikko soft baits. Hurry guys the stock are running low.
Fish Are Not Biting
Arrived at the marina and the weather looks good but the wind is still strong. We set up our light fishing tackle and off we go to our usual first boat fishing trip Singapore spot. Lines down and fish on. It was my first drop and straight away fish on and managed to land a sweetlips. Wow, that gave us hope 😉 .
Lines down again but this time I had to wait for quite sometime before I caught my second fish, a parrot fish.
We lost quite a number of tenya cha cha and also the Nikko soft baits. The wind is too strong and we drifted to fast and had a lot of sangkut.
It was a low bite and we moved to several spots and the fish just don’t want to eat. After about 3 hours we landed about 4 fishes. The wind started blowing strong and we call it a day.
My Dinner, All Freshly Caught
I steamed the spanish flag, tiga rasa for the sweetlips and sashimi the parrot fish!
