    Always wanted to take up fishing but I hate the thought of poking holes in them while they are still alive. Perhaps there are hookless lures or something? Cant use nets as I think my country(Singapore) does not allow the use of it.

    Just take the hooks off of any lure and cast away!
    You won't catch anything, but you'll still be fishing.
    :rollno:

    Haha and I probably would catch seaweed and litter.. I do not know much about fishing so I may sound as if im trolling.. I put myself in the shoes lol shoes of the fish and to bite on what I think is food and turns out to be a hook... well I feel horrible.

    Im on the bus with no earphones so I will watch it when I get home. I see that he used a rod so I assumed he is using hooks? They did not show the equipment.

    The bait (a piece of mackerel) was wrapped in wool that gets tangled in the teeth of the eel.

    Catch and release. Its more of a leisure thing, I am not eating it. Hate seafood except stingray anyway.

    Maybe, that thing could have speared him.

    Seems like something Bear Grylls would do.

    Bear Grylls would kick it up a notch by having a glass of his pee and smear feces on the raw fish for dinner.

    Oh no I cant do noodling... Singapore has no small streams. Just deep sea and reservoirs.

  20. Get an aquarium, 50 gallons should do nicely and get approx. 25 feeder goldfish... Y'know , the ones bred to know that their existence is to end up food. Make sure the aquarium is equipped with a mermaid and bubbling treasure chest, this is vital.

    Each day plunge your hand into the crystalline depths ( considering you maintain your glass sanctuary) and pluck one of these doomed fish from the waters. Bring the chosen to eye level and say " not today". You get the thrill of the hunt and the fish gets the relief of being released from a death row of sorts.

    At least that's how I do t
