    Reached our first spot after 2hrs. Caught alot of rabbit fishes.. never too pic as it's not impressive. Slightly bigger than a palm.

    Around 3pm plus, we set off fishing. After travelling for 2hrs to our 1st spot, it's about 5pm. Fish for a while then it's DINNER TIME :lol:

    Early next morning, boat captain bring us to our last fishing boat. This location must be an excellent fishing playground. Location fisherman also park their boat there - Fishing.

    Around 7.30am onwards, we meet a school of Chemin and Cobia. Didn't land much because we didn't have live Sotong. Thoughout the whole fishing trip, we were fishing with dead Sotong. Didn't mange to catch any live Sotong in the night.

    Kelong accepts SGD. Was told that Fishing is around S$35 per rod. room is around S$28. If purchase 2 rod (ie S$70), free 1 room :lol:

    There all spending in Singapore currency. One tin of can softdrink cost S$1.00, one tin of Tiger Beer cost S$1.50.

    Ferry to and from Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal cost S$40.00. Transport from Tanjong Pinang Ferry Terminal to Kelong cost S$20.00 to the Kelong, and when going back, cost another S$20.00. Takes around 30mins to reach Kelong from the terminal. Transport charge by per trip. If 4 person going also S$20.00.

    Kelong very nice environment but it's costly as all spending in SGD !

    Erm... guess it's not nice to name the Kelong as I dun want to advertist or promote this Kelong. No doubts it have nice environment but it's expensive. How come Indonesia Kelong collect Singapore Dollar. It's not cheap as well considering the Ferry, Vechicle, Drinks, Food, Stay...etc

    Only plus point is it's environment. Very 'nature'.... I'll email you the Kelong's name.
