Fishing trip @ P.Ubin 260306

A bunch of us went offshore fishing today.
The teams: 4 guys and 2 gurls.

We departed the dock in our chartered bumboat at 8.30am, at the Changi Ferry Terminal and left for the waters off Pulau Ubin and Pulau Tekong.
We didn’t bring the dawgs because it was our first time going offshore and we figured we wouldn’t know what to do if they decided to have too much fun and go swimming in the sea instead!

But turns out, apart from the sea sickness, it was FUN!!
Our boat could accomodate another 2 more persons and 2 more dogs at least.

Ok, enough of all the talk.
Here’re the photos!!

The kelongs, our initial stop to buy live prawns:

Andy’s first catch – a muddy scallop ??!

Paul’s golden snapper:

Jack also caught a red snapper!

The grunter fish (not the one with black hair):

Here’s a baby reef shark!!

When you’ve gotta go, you gotta go. Our toilet from 8.30am – 6pm is this trench!
Joy’s stepping inside the pee hole!

We caught 3 of these squids: Be careful the black ink!!


So in total, we caught 1 “Finger print” fish (which Jack and Joycelyn took home), about 6 red snappers, several other smaller grunter fishes, and 3 squids.
The winners: The GUYS! The GURLS: 0.
The one who caught most fish : Paul
The one who caught the wierdest stuff (like corals and scallop and reef shark) : Andy

We might be planning another offshore trip this coming Good Friday weekend.
This time, we might be bringing the dawgs. Anyone wana join us?

    Hey! Was talking abt our fishing trip to my lab technician today and he said he went fishing off Ubin/Tekong 8am-5pm also!! And he also chartered the boat for $280 (same same). He used live prawns and worms, bought from the kelong also! WOW such a coincidence!
    Remember those boats next to us on random occasions? Maybe he was in one of them HAHA
