Tamban Fishing at Bedok Jetty

The famous Jetty in Singapore. Do you know that on 30 July 2020, an angler known as Alo caught a gigantic 80kg leopard whipray at Bedok Jetty. It took him nearly three hours to pull it in. It is said that he caught the fish around 7pm and only manage to reeled it in around 10pm.

Bedok Jetty is the Home of Tamban Fish & also Queenfish. Due to it being infested by Tamban fish, the jetty attracts many other fishes like Queenfish, Squid, Octopus, Stingray, Cobia, Selar, Trevali, Snapper and Barramundi. However dont get too excited about landing a big fish here. The fish at Bedok Jetty are smart and knows how to avoid your baits. It takes patience, skill and the right lure/rig/bait to catch them.

Here are some ways to land a fish at Bedok Jetty;

  • Ajing Fishing / Ultralight Setup to Catch Scads
  • Bottom Fishing to catch groupers (effective at night using squids)
  • Surfcasting from the end of the Jetty (advance anglers)
  • Use Multi Species Rigs to haunt more scads, snappers
  • Tamban Fishing Using Tamban Rigs

Ajing Fishing

Ajing Fishing aka Finesse Fishing is a specialised style of fishing that has gained a lot of popularity in Singapore. It uses ultra light tackle targeting yellowtail, Tamban and selar. We use lures such as soft plastics, minnows and jigs etc and only sensitive ultralight spinning rods and very light lines. Due to the extremely light setup, you will be able to feel the strikes during every catch. In fact, the feel of the rod is intoxicating.
