Changi Offshore with Ah Fong

My first offshore trip with Ah Fong. Quite a nice guy and chatty too. He is very good at fishing!!!

Also to test out my newly bought Accurate 270 with my lucky red line that I transferred over from my Avet reel.

My lucky red line proved to be lucky once again. Landed a 2.5kg groupa together with few other catches.

Total catch for the trip 27 pieces. I threw back an ACK cos I think its too small. All Sengs and other smaller fishes were also thrown back. Very good catch from personal experience especially when he only has 1, yes 1 spot. We just basically circled 1 area near to changi beach and thats what we landed.
Couple of picture attached.

I was at fw3 70 today for recce. The water is extremely clear. Can see through water about 1.5m. Saw a few regulars from No. 2 there and they were landing a few ACK. The fight from the 1kg ACK was very very strong (think due to good water quality)

Enjoy your fresh steam gao. Yummy

Yong... Yr recipe always very vague... Very hard to understand.

I already cut the fish up. Spilt head with tummy into 2.

The body, I fillet the flesh out on one side and the other side I kept with the bone.

To cook beehoon, how do I marinate the fish chunks? If just throw in quite tasteless right?

piero,
the chunks marinate with a little light soya sauce n corn starch.
you stir fry it with sliced ginger n whole garlic till abit light golden brown.
remove for later use.
same wok with the gliced ginger n whole garlic,pour water in to boil,can add chicken cube,or some abalone soup base.
prepare vegetables-Hong Kong choy sam n your Chor beehoon, tips put the vege-stalks in to boil 1st,Then add everything in and let boil and simmer small heat for 2-3 minutes, add brandy in for aroma.
Can add ligt soya sauce if too bland.add carnation evaporated milk- 1 tablespoon,optional. sprinkle pepper, ready to be serve.

serve with light soya sauce ,red chilli n minced garlic.
