SO I fished with the Tankers!

12 hours on a boat, didn't sound too bad in all honest truth!
Only thing is I didn't catch ANYTHING, other then a battle with a LARGE
snag 20 meters below with the sea bed.
But I wasn't alone, out of 4 of us, only 1 caught 2 snappers
and his 1st fish, he didn't even know.
We hauled our lines in because the captain was moving the boat.

Did I mention this trip was organised by One degree 15 Marina???
So they hired the boat, we got our own rods, tackles, bait etc.
and we had 2 other old boys who paid for the trip.
Here was the lead up to our Boat trip of sleep deprivation!
3.30pm:
Picked live prawns up from some random old shop in West coast Drive,
stuck the bait in to a cooler box with a bubble blower for oxygen!

6.00pm:
Packed our stuff back home, dumped it in the car and drove to Vivo.

6.30pm:
Bought 4 boxes of SPizza and bags of ice.

7.00pm:
Parked at One degree 15 loaded and got on the boat, not forgetting waiting for the 2 old boys who were half an hour late!

8pm-8am:
Fished, snagged, fished, told we were going 4 different locations but in reality
we swear the guy drove us in circles back to the same place.

As for Southern Waters, what it really means is, 1-2 kilometers away from
the Singapore Flyer (which was in sight) and in amongst the giant tankers.
Couple of hopeful snags later, I went to sleep at 5am and woke at 6.30ish plus
when i was somewhat freezing. I climbed down to the first level and found no one
else had caught anything else.

Well it was a good talk with a gazillion cans of beer, coke sprite and redbull
and even some stingray and jellyfish sightings
that in actual fact turned out to be a BIg white Plastic bag and cup!
HAHAHahahaAHHAahHAAH.

So a few words, DON'T FISH in the SOUTHERN WATERS EVER.
SERIOUSLY.
1. More tankers then Fish
2.Cheaper to go to Malaysia for 2 days
Ofcourse unless you like being sleep deprived and can talk for 12 hours straight.

Well next trip MALAYSIA here we come next month or so.
For 4 people on a 2 day (all day fishing)/ 1 night its something like
900 Ringgit a boat, 180 Ringgit (per person) a night stay in a chalet.
Equipment bring it yourself, bait i'm sure they'd provide.

Anyone else go fishing? ANy recommendations?
