Need your advise on wiring. Basically we've bought 1 set of fishfinder & most of the time i connect it direct to spare car battery. I was advise not to do that as it will shorten the battery life. Also where is the best position to place the transducer?

It is best to connect the fishfinder to your engine battery (assuming you have a electric start engine).
As for the transducer, there are many considerations. Assuming it is a transom mount transducer and that you are using a single engine. Install it to the right side of the boat about 1-2ft away from the props. The bottom of the transducer should be slightly below the hull. The idea is to have as little bubbles as possible when travelling at speed.
If you drop by the shop and let me know the details of your boat, then i could sketch you an installation diagram.

The best is still the Todak catch. There were many jumps followed by runs. Very spectacular. Would have made a nice video. Hehe.

The other notable thing that day was the there were lots of military ships from many countries that there. There was also helicopters maneuvers from those ships. Very impressive and intimidating.

Today started off with rewiring part 3. I have done 2 session of rewiring earlier but it was still not what I wanted. Today I got the dual battery switch installed but I still could not use both batteries because I forgot to bring the +- connectors for the second battery. I guess there will be a rewiring part 4.
I also replaced the transducer of my fishfinder with a brand new one as the old one was faulty. While I am working on the electrical, my crew helped change the spark plugs.
By noon, the boat was launched and we were off. We trolled Rapalas and I caught a Queenfish at the cut. After that it was bottomfishing at my secret reefs. The first drop resulted in double hookup. 2 nice groupers.
After catching a mix of reef fish, I moved on to the deep trench to test the transducer. At the 450ft spot, the fishfinder was showing 240ft. I was confused. Was the fishfinder faulty? After adjusting the settings, that 240ft was not the bottom, it was a thick school of fish. I let my line down to fish that depth but there were no takers. We moved on to other reefs and the fishing was good. At the spot where we landed Kerisi Bali, there were a few hookup where the biggies just peel the lines off my PE3 setup before breaking at the leader. No chance at all.
By 5pm, we got back to Pelong to one of my favourite fishing fun. Casting with light tackle. Armed with my 8lb class setup, I started casting near my usual spot. There was a boat anchored hindering our casting angle. The people on that boat was not fishing. They were scuba diving with spear guns. I thought that was illegal.
So I moved to the other side of the island away from them. Fortunately, the fish were there too. I got lots of strikes but few hookups. I managed to land on Todak about 2Kg. It gave a good fight with lots of acrobatic jumps and runs.
It got dark so I call it a day and head back.

Hi Akudou,

I haven't done any freshwater fishing in years......last I remembered was when I was about 6yrs old.....using those traditional fishing poles catching keli and haruans (and the udang galah along Bangar river) in my birthplace, Temburong....by the bucketfull!!!! I guess...those days are just memories now.

I rekindled my additiction towards fishing when I was in my previous postings OVERSEAS!!!!

I am still learning thus no preferennce towards any particular method. Willing to try out anything. I had done a bit of jigging, bottom fishing and (the odd) popping.

Had been quite itchy to go sea fishing but haven't had the opportunity due to the bad weather and just settled down after the overseas duty.

Will highly appreciate if I can be included if any of you guys are planning to do ANY type of fishing. I can be contacted at +673 8753663.

Once again THANKS!

Ciao!

I could not believe it. I opened the bag and the fishfinder and GPS is not in it. It was just lures and other stuff. So I had drive all the way back home to get them. What a start for a fishing trip? One whole hour wasted.

Capt Nonoy got the Whaler launched into the water and got every other thing set up. As soon as I got there with the fishfinder we set off. By then it was already 10am. So we skipped light tackle casting and head straight for the nearest reef in the Abana area. Landed a few groupers. Nice size but nothing exciting then the bite stops.

The sea was mirror calm, so we zoomed to the deepwater trench around 1130 and there were at least 12 boats there with some coming and some going.
Waved hand signs to some anglers on the other boat asking about the catch. All came back with thumbs down.
Nevertheless, we dropped our line in about 350ft of water where I read a high thick band of fish(130-220ft) on the fishfinder. Installed the line counter on my rod and started fishing in that thick band of fish. But nothing for a while and when I retreive to check the bait, I got a hooked and with a decent pull. Finally, it was just an Adidas.

It was already mid-day so we had lunch and then its off to other shallower area. First stop, there groupers were biting but it was very difficult to park the boat over the reef. The current was going one direction and the wind was intermittent. So the boat was drifting in different direction everything we cut the engine (an electric trolling motor would be nice here).
After landing a few more groupers, I decided to go to a bigger reef so that we don't have to park so precisely. We were rewarded. As soon as I dropped my line, there was a strong pull. It was a nice snapper around 2kg. Second drop also resulted in another snapper. It was almost one drop one fish. I think we were right over a school. But as they were very close to the bottom, the subsequent drop resulted in cut lines as they pull quickly to the reef. I put on heavier duty line and max out the drag on my Jigger. But after that all I landed were groupers.

The rain storm hit us and off we go headed for home.
