Went fishing last month and yesterday at Bedok jetty, the catch rate was horrible, especially yesterday.

At least last month the bait fish was abundant, so abundant in fact an uncle filled his 4 litre icebox within 2 hours with Bigeye Ilisha and Hardtail Scads.

We had several bites with garfishes too, but fail to lend any due to bait coming off or line cut by their sharp teeth.

But there were numerous beltfishes yesterday, they can be caught using a simple float rig or with small lures.
