PUB No balls to face the Foreign worker?

I'm sure most of you had BAD experience being chased after by the PUB (Public Utilities Board) or Npark rangers becos of illegal fishing in the reservoir, they come after you even if you are using artificial bait aka lures and do catch and release everytime you fished in the reservoir.

I still remember a few months back, a middle-aged man was found dead in Jurong lake and was believed to have been running from the PUB

Ya ya i know some of you will just say they go after you becos you are fishing at a non designated fishing area , alright i understand it is their job to catch us lol but we catch and release anglers are not doing much of damage compared to those foreign worker. Seems like the PUB are not taking much of action against foreign worker! I will not mention country here i'm sure you know who are them and where they are from.

They can do all kind of shit in our reservoir like putting nets across the reservoir, putting fish traps in the reservoir, bagging big numbers of fish away from the reservoir using baits etc.... Best of all they did it like nobody business!!!

Just few days back me and my freinds went to a reservoir to kill some itch , we landed a few small PBs. All the fish were released back to where it belongs la.

Quite sometime ago i saw a few foreign worker putting nets across the reservoir right behind the PUB pump hse I was like "WTF" right under the authorities noses and they are not doing anything!

I have seen and heard lure anglers who CnR being caught, fined, warned... but never seen or heard those foreign worker being caught, fined or warned.



They can be very rude to singaporean sometime and acting like an hero but when comes to Foreign worker they might just hide themselves in a hole. PUB No balls to face the Foreign worker? or better still illegal immigrants?


And oh ya there was this time me and jarrett went to do some recee and saw this in the late afternoon.

  3. maybe you should forward the pics to PUB HQ and highlight.. that PUB rangers are not dealing the issues with fairness.. I would definately say, 80% those people would be illegal immigrants.

  8. Haiz, what happen is that these foreign works know the timing that PUB boat will pass by thus they use the 'safe' period to do all these fish netting like nobody business.

    On PUB, well my only experience with them not too bad. Luring at a small stream with at that time I didn't know it led to a reservoir, PUB boat came, asked politely if I know it is illegal to fish there even if using lure. I told them frankly, no idea because no signboard and I thought it is just a stream leading to some canal. Am told politely to leave and not to fish there again. All very professionally done and polite. of course sometime they might have bad day, like we all do.

    let me put it in retrospect, given the size of they have to cover, how can we expect them to weed out all illegal anglers, rod and net inclusive. They only way I can see if they open up the fishing area BIG time and let private operators to run with sale of fishing license. Then these operators will be 'on the ball' to report these illegal netters to PUB.
