boat had reached its designated location.
The middle-aged man adjusted the route and walked out of the cockpit.

“Xiao Liu, bring over the fishing net.”

“Okay.” Liu Yufei dragged over the neatly arranged fishing net.

The fishing nets were also available in various sizes.
Generally, a three-layered net was used, but in the sea, a four-finger net was more commonly used.
However, some people used a one-size-fits-all net, which was called a “castration net.”

The middle-aged man first found a foam ball, which was the top of the net.
For lowering the net, generally, two people were required, one person to organize the net, and the other person to lower it.
Otherwise, if it got tangled, it would be troublesome.

Yang Xiaolong wasn’t of much help and felt a bit in the way, so he decided to step aside and take out his fishing rod.
The weather was too hot, and the squid he received from his boss yesterday had a bit of a smell to it.

He controlled his blue ring, who seemed lazy and uninterested in moving around.
Some small fish and shrimp were swimming around it, but it remained still.

They were fishing in an area close to the coastline, and occasionally, other fishing boats passed by with large nets.
They had to be careful not to get caught before they could catch anything.

After half an hour, Liu Yufei and the others had already put down two nets and some crab cages.
Blue ring had also arrived, but they hadn’t caught any large fish yet.

As Blue ring swam past a crevice in the rocks, they noticed something unusual.
Seven or eight long, cylindrical objects were hanging down, lined up in a row.
Blue ring was small and agile, and if it weren’t for them, they might have gone unnoticed.

Blue ring quickly swam through the crevice, revealing a group of sleeping ribbon fish.
Ribbon fish were social creatures that usually slept during the day and came out to feed at night.

Yang Xiaolong quickly rigged his lure with a sea worm, estimating a distance of about twenty meters.
He stood up and with a flick of his wrist, the lead sinker made a “thud” sound as it hit the water, creating ripples that startled the fish and shrimp in the area.

Based on his past experience, he had good technique today, successfully casting his line into a crevice where a school of ribbonfish were hiding.
However, despite the commotion caused by the sinker, the fish remained sound asleep and not biting, causing frustration for Yang Xiaolong.

“Hey, how’s your catch going?” A middle-aged man approached and asked.

“Just started, do you need any help?” Yang Xiaolong offered, feeling a bit uneasy since he was on the man’s boat.

The man gestured for him to sit down and the two of them sat in silence, staring at the ribbonfish in the water.
The atmosphere was awkward, but Yang Xiaolong paid no attention, focusing on the fish that were now nibbling at the bait.

“Boss, what can we do if the fish don’t bite?” Yang Xiaolong asked a few minutes later, after most of the bait had been eaten.

The middle-aged man blew a smoke ring and replied, “Nothing.”

Yang Xiaolong decided to reel in his line, realizing he couldn’t wait until nightfall for a few ribbonfish, even if he wanted to.
He had hoped for bigger catches, but things weren’t looking good.
However, just as he was pulling in his line, a sea bass swam up from nowhere, much to his surprise.

Quickly, he re-hooked the bait with a river shrimp and cast his line again.
This time, he was too close to the fish, but it didn’t seem to mind.
Sea bass were small, carnivorous fish that were easy to catch, so Yang Xiaolong was hopeful.

The sea bass noticed the bait and swam towards it, nibbling tentatively with its mouth.
After a few minutes, it gave in to the temptation and took the bait, much to Yang Xiaolong’s delight.

“Got one!” Yang Xiaolong grinned, deftly reeling in the line.
