On Sat night, my friends suggested we go Bishan for prawn fishing. Have always heard about it, but have never been to one or try it out before.
We went to the one at Sin Ming Road around 12 midnight plus. It was so crowded! It seem to look so fun with so many people squeezing around the ponds to prawn. And I can see many of them had one whole load net of catches!
So we shared one rod and my friend who had been there before tell us how to prawn. It was really fun.
After 3 hours of being there, we only caught 4 prawns! SO MISERABLE! It was morning 530am when we left the place.
I was not satisfied with the catch, I jio another friend to go on Sun night! 6 of us went and we had 3 rods. This time it was even better! We caught more than 30 prawns after 3 hours! And we had a sumptuous meal after that.
After today, my friend who seems better in prawning teaches me a lot of the skills involve. And I think I myself caught more than 10 pieces today. And I realise that the bigger the prawn, are not necessary better! The meat don’t seem to taste as good and sweet as the smaller ones. And again we went off only at 530am. Anyway, Monday still a holiday mah. Slept the whole day till 7pm!
Will definitely go prawning again! Going to try out the other locations as well such as East Coast and Punggol Marina !
Just see how pack and crowded it is.
No space to BBQ our catch even.
Our one big net load of catches!
This one was quite big! Caught by me! lolx
Our catch of more than 30 over!
Our meal of prawns !
