Marin South Paypond CR - 10/11/07

If you had noticed, we have not been actively fishing for the past 3 months! In an attempt to end our fishing "drought", 3 members of the team decided to head down to Marina Paypond. The reason why Marina South Paypond was chosen over the other available payponds was pretty simple. This was a new "hunting ground" for us, and it has been confirmed that it was going to be closed down soon, so we jumped at the chance as soon as Raymond suggested it.

Being a typical Saturday morning, there was already quite a crowd when we arrived at the place. With a light drizzle over the area, Ho, Raymond and myself quickly paid for our rods before commencing to cast out our baits of dead prawns, dead kembong and live prawns.

Team A.S.A.M in action - Raymond and Ho preparing their tackles.

The place was quite small, with a triangular pond and the nets in the centre. The disadvantage was that people tend to cross their lines with the design of the pond, but the smaller pond meant that the fish had lesser space to roam, meaning that the chance of landing a hungry fish was higher. The place also had taps near to each table, which was kind of handy for you to wash up after you had prepared your bait. (i.e cutting of kembong)

At the end of the day, we managed to land a total of 6 fishes - 3 Golden Pomfrets, 2 Star Snappers (Peh Tiam), 1 Seabass (Kim Bak Lor) and 1 Mangrove Jack (Chia Zhor), our rewards for fishing in the rain.
