Tips on StingRay Fishing
Stingray is one of the most common fish found in Singapore water. It is a bottom feeder staying mostly on sandy patch seabed looking for prey. There are a few types of stingrays on our shoreline. The most common are the long-tail brown stingray, the leopard spot ray, the contour line ray, the eagle stingray, and the hairy tail ray. With the right bait and some luck, it is easy to land a 10kg stingray in Singapore.
What Bait Should I use to Catch Stingray?
If you are targeting big stingrays, Calamari squid and Tamban fish (herring) is often seen as the best stingray bait. However, stingrays take most of the baits present to them. Any small fish, squid, prawn, and sea worm will work as well too. Once hooked, reel in the ray and grab them just behind the eyes and lift them out of the water. Stay clear of the whipping tail while you place the ray down and hold it still.
If you want to avoid catching stingrays, simply fish in deeper water well away from the shallows. And avoid letting your bait hit the ocean bottom. By doing this, the chances of catching a stingray by accident will be lessened.
Will a Stingray die if it swallows a hook?
They can survive if they swallow a hook, even if it is lodged somewhat deep into the stomach, but obviously it is not an ideal situation. It is a common misconception that a hook will dissolve, at least in any kind of rapid rate.
