Tips for fishing @ Changi Broadwalk

TenthJuly
edited December 2017 in General Fishing
Hi folks, a newbie to fishing here and have been casting my rod at Changi Broadwalk for 2 months or so and still no luck. 
Longest I've stayed was 12 hours, overnight and still nothing at all. 
I tried using live prawn, frozen sotong and lure. 
Any kind advice for hook/weight etc? I know there are so many different sizes of it but I do not know which is best in whichever situation. Will appreciate if anyone could help.

Thank you in advance!  <3

    Tip 1 - Avoid the area where the "permanent residents" park their rods/reels. If you are new, those "permanent residents" show little to no respect or tolerance when you cross their line (or they cross yours!).


    Tip 2 - Sinker size - 6. Torpedo size. Best sinkers will be those with steel wires which bend. Those "permanent residents" swear by it (if you don't use, they will nag at you.)


    Tip 3 - Live prawns work best (for me). Wa-wat or sarong worms are good too.


    Tip 4 - Sangkot area is the resting area on the right (facing ubin), on the left. There are some structures at the bottom. Otherwise, it is muddy bottom.


    Tip 5 - Gone with the days where Changi Broadwalk is a place for good catch. Even Ah Sengs (catfish) are hard to come by.


    Tip 6 - Remember Tip 1. I had a lot of bad days with them (even not my fault). Oh well.

    ​Thanks for the tips! :smile: 
    Many of the permanent residents rod are not cast when I am there. Consider myself lucky. But i know of a PR there that stays at the very 1st shelter when you walk into broadwalk, the malay guy, he is really friendly. 
    I do encounter a few unfriendly ones but they didnt do anything to me except when I tried to be friendly go over chit chat with them hoping to get some tips but was totally ignored. As though I am invisible. But its okay. 
    I will try to learn along my way. :wink: 

    Changi is really clean and convenient when I need to get some stuffs for fishing. 

    But I am thinking of going elsewhere maybe woodlands or sembawang next week :smiley: 
    Any idea if there is any fish shop with live prawn around that area? 

    Thank you so much!!!
