Happy reading! :P

After 11 pages ( :shock: ) of anticipation, the day had finally arrived! It was a nice, clear Sunday morning as everyone got ready and assembled at Punggol Marina. Not surprisingly, many of us couldn't sleep well the previous night, as we had been waiting for this day!

We met up, introductions to new kakis were made, and Koh (the boatman) brought us to his new boat (err, what's the boat's name ah? forget liao). Anyway, it was a nice 40+ footer fibire-boat that sat all 10 of us comfortably.

The moment we got on the boat, we dumped out barang barang into the hold and starting setting up our gear, even before Koh left the pier! hahaha.

Ahh, the roar of the engine, the sun shining down on us, the wind in our face, the salty spray splashing up, and the nice wake left behind.... It looked set to be a wonderful day!

The first 1 or 2 spots produced little except the ever-"friendly" ah seng.... a party-pooper that constantly depleted our stock of live and dead prawns.

Someone must have forgotten to bathe, or pray the day before, for at 12pm or so, Neptune, seeing us enjoying ourselves, decided to stick his spear into the sea and give it a swirl. The sea got choppy, and the waves began to build. Ominous dark clouds formed on the horizon. We began to exchange remarks and concerns on the incoming storm, words like "Perfect Storm" was mentioned a coupla times, cos it really did look that way! What else could be said? The sky opened up and we were now caught in a huge storm! Visibility was low, the rain was coming down like nobody's business, and the wind threatened to peel one of us out of the boat! Old Man, dressed in his poncho, imitated a "prata", and we were of half a mind to tie a line to him, throw him out, just so we could "pretend" to get a good fight! :lol:

Anyway, it seemed like a good time for lunch. All thanks to Koh's 3-in-1 coffee, comfort and confidence was restored, as a few hardy kakis took to the rods despite the rain!

After 2 hrs or so, the rain slowed down to a drizzle, and everyone was up and at it again! Gurama (spelling?) was caught by many, a threadfin (!!), some "ugly monster" thinggy, palm-sized prata or two, a duri or two, grouper, and some more I can't remember the names.............

Koh was very very accomodating. Knowing the storm had dampened our moods somewhat, and that the fish might not be biting as much, he constantly checked with us our bite rate and asked if we wanted a change of spot every 20 to 40 mins. All in all, he brought us to what? almost 8 or 10 spots? ( :shock: ) Many of the spots we were brought to had the presence of a vessel or two as well, decked with anglers, so we knew he was bringing us to "proven" spots, and not taking us for a ride, which was good ( :wink: )

Alas, all good things must come to an end (despite the ugly storm). The call for "Last Cast!" was made, and everyone wetted their lines 1 final time, hoping and praying for providence to send a biggie. Well, as you know, that seldom happens hahahaha!

We reached back to Punggol Marina, the catch was distributed, and all headed home, wet, tired, but happy! :D

Sorry, but the photos are not with me. Those, I'll await for our photographers to provide to let everyone enjoy :wink:

Total fish caught: 19 (?) + COUNTLESS AH SENGS! ( :evil: :evil: )

Now we're all looking forward to the next trip, where, hopefully, Mother Nature would give us a break and send good weather + good bites next time!

Hope you guys enjoy this CR. 8)

    Hardcore angler forgot to bring home his smelly tackle box Sir!
    Left it in the lorry Sir!

    The trip started out okay, began to look promising, then began to look like the Perfect Storm(The guys in the movie caught good fish but they died. So i guess it was good that we only caught a few fish during the rain. haha.).

    With hindsight, i probably should have stayed under the shelter for at least ten mintues more cuz it was si beh cold but si beh fun..haha. (is that a vulgarity? not sure... mods?)

    Then there was hellgeese who loved the skyjuice.

    And yea, i Agree that the coffee really lightened up our spirits.
    Said to say though that my BC Rod didn't get any fish. Only my other rod did. And boy was it fun.. haha...

    Esp since the rain blew my cap(hat) into the water and i was left with a cold face and messy hair(as evident in the photo that will soon come... :D). Thanks Vin!

    We all caught tons and tons of Ah Sengs and eels which i now understand why some people hate. grrr!!!

    All the kaki there were really like Kaki.. Very fun to fish with them. :D:D:D

    I'd have to say that the ending part of the trip was one of the most interesting parts of the trip. :D:D:D:D:D:D

    Can't wait for the next trip. (Which will have very serious checks on the weather before hand)

    Did i miss out anything? Like my tackle box.. haha
  • weiyee
    it was a pleasure fishing with everyone onboard. although the weather was not to our advantage, it was the great friendly company that kept everyone warm and laughing during the trip. we certainly should go fishing together again and i look forward to the next mob.

    cheers
