    ​was my favorite place to spend my Sundays morning for some fun but sad to say some month back they ban the use of my size 3 sinker and i was totally at a loss n became a zero fighter thereafter whilst my package was still valid. Tried yo fish a couple of time to exhaust my pkg but still zero at every outing n finally have to ban myself from there to save uncalled for agony. Sad........

    ​Yeah bro, this situation hurt a lot of the anglers that had schedule. So now massive floats with hooks tied close so the bait does not fumble is how they are doing it. 

    Here is another picture of how they are doing it, seems to be working ok and I may give it a try.

    Hi, just wanna provide some tips for those who aren't keen to try due to the no sinker rule.

    Tbh, sometime after the no sinker rule was implemented, the fishing just got much easier. Really, I'm not joking. Lures are more responsive, baits easier to take now. Why? cause the bait cannot fly all the way to the platform. 

    What that means is that, no baits to platform = fishes get hungry = fishes move closer to areas where bait are easily reached = higher catch rate cause fishes are more focused in the near areas.

    No joke. I remember one time, I was using some saba fish, casted along the beginner's pond fencing and the bites were coming in hard and fast. I also had no hope with the duo realis pencil back in the day, now, I easily can entice top water bites with the pencil baits, of course, weather conditions and water conditions and the number of lines in the pond play a big factor too. 

    Just wanna put it out there for you all. 


    TL:DR. after no sinker rule applied, fishes move closer to areas where baits are easily castable to.

    That makes perfect sense. It. Changed how the fish are responding.
