Open 24hours, DBest is a salt-water pond located at Pasir Ris. The fishes there are mainly sought locally and abroad and released into the ponds at frequent intervals.

  • Main Pond is the biggest and most popular with seasoned anglers.
  • Pro-Pond is much smaller than the main pond which means easier catches but costs more. 
  • Premium Pond is where you catch fish that are from 3kg to 20kg.
  • Kelong Pond is where Dbest organises private competition
  • The Sure Catch pond guarantees that you wont leave empty handed.

Understanding Pond Fish Behaviours

Fishes at the pond are generally more accustomed to feeding on "fish food" rather than chasing for live bait. D’best main pond is big enough that it offers different species of fishes different conditions and areas that they can lurk.

Depending on what type of fish you are targeting more and the area you are fishing at, different rigs will produce different results. Environmental conditions also play a part. There are no hard and fast rules. Familiarity with the place and your own experience of fishing there is the key. You need more than 1 type of rig. If dead meat doesn't work, try live prawns, if live prawns don't work, try live fish, if bottom fishing don't work, try fishing top or middle using floats, if nothing else don't work, try lures, especially our Squishy Lagoons.

This soft plastic bait is extremely fascinating. Whether you are at Dbest Main Pond or Pro Pond, you will definitely get lots of catches with this paddle tail lure. Squishy Lagoons (meansuring 7cm) is extremely effective, easy to use and highly deadly.

We invited over 20 seasoned lurers at D'Best to try the Squishy Lagoons. After 3 hours of non-stop fishing and catching over 100 fishes, they concluded that the best 3 colours for DBest waters are Watermelon, Blackberry & Dragonfruit. Based on their feedback, we created a D'best Combo Set.
