Bite was exceptionally slow tonight. However lady luck was smiling on me and bestowed me a giant prawn that the owner usually showcase in their tank. The giant prawn really tested my rod and 6lb line to the maximum when it made multiple attempts to escape.I was shocked to see the size when it surfaced and it indeed made alot of people envy due to the slow bite rate. Hehehe =)

Almost half a kilogram.

Comparison with the usual big prawn.

Tips on Handling Prawns

1. To catch them, you must stand and crouch like tiger and phoenix.

2. After all the catching has been done, pull your holding net to show off.

3. Pour your prawns into a pail, add water and salt to drown them.

4. After 5-10 mins, you can go ahead and skewer the prawns. Hopefully most are drowned in the saltwater.

5.  Leave out the bigger prawns to skewer at the last. Enjoy your moments with them.

6. Skewered prawns ready to go for a last rinse under the tap.

7.  Last picture shoot before the prawns go for tanning.

8. Finished product to be savoured to the very last.

Unexpected catch

We were at FW3 again. Fishing in Singapore is so hard….the government are closing so many fishing holes due to development. Shooting marker in FW3 is also getting harder due to the water current flow. Why is everything so damn hard? We decided to use another secret bait and were rewarded with good number of fishes. Total about 10 fishes landed in 4 hours time with mostly small redtail catfish and chao phraya. I landed the unexpected fish at night.
