After two months of not going to the sea to fish, my friends and I went to Kretam today. Jepp, Bob, Bakry, Donny, Don, Jason, Mark and myself followed Kong the boatman. Fished from 7.30am to 5.30pm. It was a very satisfying trip for some of us. I've forgotten to set the date in my camera, so, all the date stamp in the pictures dated 16/11/2009. It's supposed to be 17/11/2009.

Fishing in Sungai Jipun, Sibuga.

Went to Sungai Jipun, Sibuga this evening with Elysius at 5.00pm to 8.45pm. Used tamban, lumahan and prawn as baits. For the first time in my life, I forgot to bring along my reel. I had to borrow from Elysius. Luckily, he brought along an extra reel. Our target fish were mangrove jack and black bass.

Flowerhorn paradise

Went to Taman Samudera with Jepp. Fished there from 3.30pm to 5.30pm. Used bread and worm as baits. I successfully landed 12 flowerhorns and a snakehead. As for Jepp, he landed 10 flowerhorns. A very satisfying leisure fishing activity. Will hunt for flowerhorns again in the future. I took all the flowerhorns home and released the snakehead. Planned to put them in my fish pond. As for Jepp, he took 9 of the flowerhorns he caught and released the biggest back to the lake.
