    Depends on what kind of fish u are aiming for.
    Tamban is the most common for biggies like queenie, parang and todak.
    Squid is good for night fishing.
    Live prawn is good for Grouper. :lol:

    Good Luck..

    Beware, t'is the season for Kelong Chi and Puffers. :evil:

    A daytime problem, small Kelong Chi will swarm your baited hooks near the pillars at the surface. Puffers will simply chew the hook off eventually if you cast 5m to 10m away. Try to avoid these live bait danger zones. All my apollo rigs kenna botak on a recent trip. Managed to hook up quite a few Puffers when the hooks did hold out.

    Try to cast further out if you got long range gear or drop down your baited rig quickly to the bottom. Alternatively, you can go at night to avoid the 'bait bandits', but I'm not sure of the condition then.

    If you can tolerate these 'pests' in the day, there's a chance of getting some stargazers and small snappers at the bottom with small hooks. You can try your luck hand-lining with larger hooks, for Groupers. Use whole bait fish caught on the spot.

    This time of year also good for jigging Selar, Kembong, small Macks etc. Just use the normal tamban jigs. Jigging in the rain can yield suprising results. Bring some heavier jigs (no. 10+) just in case. :wink:

    THks to both of you for your kind tips. Anyway, I had lots of experience in hooking up pufferfish and their tooth were so sharp that sometimes, it may get away with the hook in its mouth. lol

    Don't know why you showed 3gp video tickling that poor fish. For your information, 3gp cannot be viewed in FK. Please convert to mpeg for future video attachment.

    Fugu is indeed contained lethal poison in the stomach area, however it is one of the best sushimi dishes in Japan. :P

    I don't think so, cause there are so many on the pillars near the jetty, they will come and get it as there are so much of them. Only if you expose their flesh to attract other fishes with its smell maybe, must try...

    yup. Tried using a live 2" long Kelong Chi n caught a Gar Fish.
    Tried also using Kelong Chi fillet with skin for bottom fishing. Zero catch. But that the same if I use prawns. No luck I guess.
    Also good as bait to catch more Kelong Chi's. lol
    Overall, can use as bait. But not as good as Tamban or Fresh Squid.

    Kelong Chi the so called '' skin '' not so shiny, that is why cannot attract more fish and so, less catch rate. And if you intend only to cast the whole Kelong Chi out a short distance, it will be better to use Tamban as there is a whole school of Kelong Chi for the fish itself to choose.

    kelong chi (aka pirate)?? sure it makes good bait, it depends whether the fishes is there and if the fishes will bite...

    everytime i go fishing at bjt, i make a point to catch at least one of the pirate... i'll hook it up to my hand line, and leave it at the bottom of the sea for about half hour, then i'll check.. usually i'd catch at least one fish with my hand line during each trip, the rest of the time i'd be jigging for tamban..

    The kelong chi will probably last longer than the tamban...i think best hardy bait is baby grouper...can last a few hours...good for cuda :D

    Anyone knows when the kelong chi will grow to a good size?palm size or so...then can go there get harvest :D

    Anytime but they will go to even deeper water or like deep sea where you could only catch at boat fishing in a deep sea. My father caught four fingers size in deep sea with some kakis while waiting for bigger fish to bite.

    Not neccessarily. Biggies can be caught nearer to the beach too.

    If you observe those frequent patrons who use to be at Bedok Jetty, they parked rows of their hand lines from 2nd to 4th lamp post from the beach. They've caught KBL of size not less than 3 kg in weight, I'm sure many have seen. There's believe that the biggies comes closer to the beach for smaller prey, is why biggies was caught there....

    Whether it is the end spot or nearer to the coast, sometimes fishing is about "luck" of the day, that the fish take your bites. :lol:

    Good luck and tight lines.

    At bedok jetty there are big n small kelong chis. the smallest i caught was ard 5cm. the biggest i caught was ard 15cm.
    put shrimp meat on tamban hooks and u can catch at least 80 in an hr.
    if they are in big schools, avg time to catch will be 2sec/fish.
