Well yesterday I went down to marina bay sands in Singapore and watched a bloke catch a peacock bass around 25 cm mark after I ask him a few questions and decided today I would buy a 4 PC travel rod and small spin reel and have a crack myself. Well 2 hours of fishing for two fish one around 40+cm Few of the locals said that it was very big for the area. So rather impressed with my effort. Fly to London tomorrow go for flick there while im at it.

Awsome!

Would love to target some of them as well as the Black bass family and big mangrove jacks in PNG. As a side bonus you could catch meter barra as a by catch.

Where about at Marina Bay Sands are you fishing mate? It looks all built up all the way around the bay and hard to get near the water.
