Went with my friends to try out the new prawning place located at Geylang. This is where the former Singapore Badminton Association use to be, along Guillemard Road.
It was an indoor prawning, think this is the only indoor one bah.
Cannot smoke! Though still a lot are smoking secretly.
There have food and snacks which you can order if you are hungry.
Pricing is the same as most place, $30 for 3 hours. Not sure if you can leave the un-use hours for next trip or not.
The highlight of this place may be the crab fishing. With the same price, you can either jump around the pools for prawning or crabing. But crab is quite difficult to catch though. It’s the normal type of black color crab that we eat in zhi char.
As for the prawning…………….very low rate catch!
We only manage to get 20+ base on 3 rods. And I myself only got 3 ! Whereas if at Bishan, we may have got more than 30 or 40 with 3 rods.
They release prawn very seldom, and each time release is also just a small net of prawns, maybe not even more than 50. Everyone there was like having such a sad and boring face, because you can hardly catch anything at all! I saw some pathetic one only catching less than 10 pieces.It was so boring, some people took from the counter the electric mosquito killer to kill mosquito!
It looks like a badminton racket. You just swing it in the air, and it will kill the mosquitoes.
As time goes by, the people are getting lesser and lesser. The whole place is so empty! Not surprising since the catch rate is so pathetic here.
In summary, Bishan one is still the best and number one! With the highest catch rate, many prawns, always releasing new prawns often and one big load. Though it is always crowded with people there, of cause many people since the catch rate is so good! And though many people, almost everyone will still get a fruitful catch!
I think I will stick to Bishan liao. All other places is really waste of money just catching those miserable few.
