    Hey Man,

    Tilapias - Yes
    Haruans - Mayb but rare
    Peacocks - Yet to see but heard only
    PUB/Rangers - Hell Yeah... Lots of them

    Im not trying to deter you Bro but if you kept
    seeing them each time your goin for lunch and
    smoking break, you'll know how active they are.
    Besides, the river or "Longkang" is pretty dirty now
    with the everyday rain.

    Best you go elsewhere man.
    Trust me, after 7 years working beside the Kallang river,
    if there's a monster, it's mine... :badgrin:

    hey big bass hunter work beside there
    so been fishing everyday?
    so far what you caught?:)

    Hey Man,

    Amazingly thruout these years,
    Im yet to wet my lines anywhere along
    the canal. In fact i'll rather rushed
    down to the nearest reservoir rather than to
    fish there. Its not exactly beside my wkplace
    but I do passby it everyday though.

    The canal has that sense of uneasiness to it aft
    the recent few deaths along bendemeer side there.
    Its dirty: visually, physically and also spiritually.

    Many years back a group of guys from a company beside
    the canal fished there in the evening. I kaypoh go look2
    see2 and ask hows the catch.
    They say its hard to explain, each time they put their
    bait in the water, there's instant vigorous action.
    But when they pull up the line, its as though the bait
    was not even touched.

    I didnt see it for myself but the story alone was enuf
    to give me goosebumps. It was Thursday night somemore.
    Till now I still observe but nvr fish there.

    Used to be better before marina barrage was built.

    Can get Queenie at Tanjong Rhu.
    Snagged breeding Kims along the MRT.
    Fly fishing for Ladyfish or Tarpon(not the Atlantic one)
    over at the Temple side here.

    Now... If your nearby Kallang, its better you go
    over to Kallang Bahru hawker centre to buy the famous
    Mutton Soup or Sup Kambing... More worth it. Hahaha
