The 27-year-old owner of the lure brand HABITAT has been fishing for bait fish (tamban) at the Bedok Jetty since the age of five and has since explored surfcasting, fly fishing, luring and jigging. He started luring 15 years ago and has fond memories of catching groupers in St. John’s Island and Kusu Island, Sentosa, Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal and the Singapore River during the late 1990s, when fishing was still allowed at these areas. Landing a 2-3kg grouper was common back then, but Gerard feels that if anglers know the feeding times and behaviours of fish in each spot, saltwater fishing can still be enjoyable today. An avid fan of the grouper, he still dreams of catching a Queensland one using a lure.
