Time to go back and rest.
Felt happy with this competition. The feeling was not the same as my ordinary fishing trip. Although I landed only small fish but I was satisfied of being able to experience this competition together with one of the most experienced boatmen in SYC, two professional and helpful anchormen and 6 of my best fishing buddies.
Andrew and one of the anchormen had won the consolation prizes.
Jason, Ah Kwong and Andrew had also won the lucky draw.
I hope to take part in this competition again next year.
