Prawn and lobster fishing in Singapore

Image adapted from: Fun at Fish

If you wish to catch your own fresh seafood, kampung style, try prawning. Because prawns are smaller and struggle less than their finned counterparts, it’s much simpler than fishing. All you need is some bait, patience, and a few deft tugs – you’ll even get to grill your loot afterwards.

Check out these 8 prawning places in Singapore where you can catch your prawns, and eat them too.

1. Aquarium Iwarna – from $10.50/hr

Accessible only by car, Aquarium Iwarna (from $10.50/hour) is pretty off the grid. That said, this also means it’s a lot less crowded – which is ideal for an activity that requires peace of mind and patience.

Google will inform you of what you can find at their aquarium – mostly what’s needed for the setup and maintenance for your home aquarium – but what’s not shared are the ponds they have for fishing and prawning. These are also, for some reason, not listed on their website. There are grills available for you to cook your catch after your session.
