Peak season for Halfbeak is on now !
Don't wait.
 Caught these at Labrador Park within 1 hr, using a single hook.

    What bait and rig did you use?
  • Des T
    Go see my previous posts on Halfbeaks.
    The rig has not changed.
    Just a float, 1m long leader, 1 single tamban hook.
    Bait is either a pinch of bread squeezed onto hook,
    or halfbeak meat itself. The first fish you catch, gut and fillet, then slice that fillet across, into fine strips around 2cm long. Hook strip at one end, leave other end dangling.
    When Halfbeaks eat it, they will gulp down whole strip of meat (including hook at the end of strip).

    Easy lah.

    If you use more than 6 lb mainline, your gear is too heavy leow. 
    Get an ultralight setup.
    Best time to introduce newbies or young children to fishing.

    Hurry. Before the Halfbeak season is gone.

    Those are some good size Halfbeaks, Des T. Is that a typical amount you can get in an hour or were you lucky?

    During Halfbeak season, this is a typical catch rate.
    Today I helped out a group of 7 newbies, fathers and children, at Labrador.
    Inspite of many many cross lines, sangkok, birdnests, we still managed to land 17 in 2 hrs.
