The trip was "BAD" due to the NE wind blown @ 30-50 knot creating white cap and swells.  We had to take shelter behind the island.  Even the local fishing boats also took shelter.  We entertained ourself by fishing small fish behind the island. Only Darren caught a 4kg spanish mackerel and a good size "tiger" garouper.  Rest of us only caught small "coral trout".
On the way back, we stopped at 2 ship wrecks i.e ?147 and russian wreck.  Both spots = zero fish. to pop??

u need a good boat with stabilizer to pop in this situation.

Ah Eng's boat.

Impresed with the arsenal.
