There’s something special about going out of Singapore to fish; exploring a new places together and meeting anglers passionate about the sport.
Ask anyone about fishing trips with Dad, and you’ll often hear how much they enjoyed and cherish those indelible holiday memories.
1. Fishing off mainland Singapore. Handlinefishing.com reveals a part of the shore on St John’s Island facing Lazarus Island that’s particularly suited for luring and surf fishing. Look for a stretch of breakwater that runs across the lagoon to the corner of the island and set yourselves up to fish there!
2. Charter a boat and go offshore fishing in Singapore waters. The average trip around either Changi, Tanah Merah, Sembawang, Pulau Ubin or the Southern Islands starts early morning and ends in the evening.

You might want to start your foray into offshore fishing by checking out companies that organise offshore fishing trips for beginners. On such trips, you’ll have the benefit of a Fishing Guide onboard to teach you how to fish.
3. Go fishing in neighbouring waters.
After tackling the waters in Singapore, move on to nearby Desaru, Sibu, Rompin and Kuching. The nearby kelongs in Johor, Sibu, Aceh (Malaysia) and Bintan (Indonesia) are very promising as well.
