Lady luck is really smiling on us these days heehee..I caught a 'mum would be happy size' John snapper on the following day we caught GT. Interesting part was,
*I use frozen dead prawn recycled from previous day..
*Lousy recycled dupont leader, line already badly bitten by numerous nasty puffers, too lazy to tie..
*Poor cast, my line sungkuk at rod tip while throwing so was very near to shore..
*My 1st cast of the day!!
The bite was early at 8am. My daiwa spin bended heavily to the right and I was lucky to retrieve my catch quite effortlessly because the panicky snapper had already put up a supposingly long struggle after swallowing my bait and was swimming to the right side of the shore much to my ignorance. I can reel in quite steadily because I think he had already tire himself out while I was goofing around at our resting spot!
When I 1st caught a glimpse of the fish, I thought was a big javelin grunter! I have been hopping to catch an adult size grunter and really thought I got it tis time. Only realised what it was until I recognize the 'orh kee' on the fish. Not bad leh, john snapper!:D

Yeah..I think my snapper heavier than mike's GT heehee sorry dear..but funny, how come the 'orh kee' disappear??
His glorious ending!
