Alternative to Fishing

Sorry to Mr. Fish.

Sorry to Mr. Fish.

Found something cheaper than fishing (what with the need to find good ponds, high pond rates as fish are more expensive, rod & reel & lure, boat trips, etc)…& it’s Prawn Fishing. The pond I frequent is the one in Sin Ming Ave, Bishan. Though the location is close to an hour’s ride away, I do have a direct bus there (service no.52). Rates are pretty reasonable, i.e. I always go $30 for 3hr anyway and the catch rate was acceptable. I went twice & all I can say is, unless you dun cast, you will not return home empty-handed. Environment is sheltered and I believe there are more than 4 ponds around, which is more than enough on a weekday. Chairs are aplenty and BBQ pits are available. There is also a very adorable cat and a whimpy dog that resides there. Size of prawns are varied and there are definitely big ones. But the average-sized ones shrunk a lot when cooked.

Ah…nothing beats listening to podcasts, chewing on Subway cookies and tight lines the entire afternoon away…

    I love prawning too! It’s a good way to chill the afternoon away, with great company & music, some snacks & drinks…it’s really very satisfying when u hook up ur catch =) however, it can be an expensive hobby + the shrunken-when-cooked prawns are not delicious at all.
