Ajing Fishing is a specialized light game coming from Japan that focuses on catching Horse Mackerel, also known as Aji.
Originating from Japan, anglers in Singapore quickly realized that in highly pressured waters like Singapore, ajing was a way to catch many fish successfully. Unfortunately, Singapore does not have the Japanese horse mackerel; therefore, ajing enthusiasts target large amounts of scad species, small trevally and colourful "reef fish". One of the most popular fish targeted is the yellowtail scad AKA "Selar". If you want to try out ajing, you will have to downsize your tackle to match the fish you are targeting; therefore, for ajing, ultralight gear is preferable.
