Sea sick

Went fishing in Taganak with Jepp, Jason and Bob ( May 31 ) from 7.00am to 5.00pm. For the first half of the trip, I had sea sick. That was my first ever sea sick. Luckily Jepp got his medicine. Took two tablets and I was sleepy. Slept for a few minutes and I was only ready to fish at about noon.

I'll be going to Taganak again this Saturday with Jepp, Bob, Jason and maybe Elysius. The preparation for this trip is not that expensive compare my first trip there. Everything is ready but this time, I will be going with an addition of my new reel- Ryobi AP Power 8000.


Just a few hours ago, I've equipped the Ryobi AP Power 8000 with 200m 50lbs Matrix Protech braided line with 3m 50lbs Protech shock leader.

Fly ( 3 ) vs Froggie ( 1 )

Casting for snakehead again today with Jason and Jepp at the same spot we've been going for almost every Friday for the past 1 month. Jepp was using his fly. As for Jason and I, we were using our froggies. Jepp managed to land 3 snakeheads and as for me, I landed only 1. It was a very satisfying day for me as I've finally got a solid hook up after few weeks without any catch.

Finally, my snakehead after few weeks without any catch.


We went back at about 6.30pm feeling satisfied. Jepp 'released' his second and third catch. As for me, I gave my snakehead to him. He planned to put them in his aquarium at home.

The future's casters

Jepp and I went fishing with a group of youngsters ( Peter, George and Fernandez ) in Mile 7 area this evening at about 3.15pm to 6.15pm. We were casting for haruans and bulan bulan. First, we went to a nice pond which was about 30m from Sungai Obar housing area. It was a very good place to cast for bulan-bulan. We were not able to get even a single bite from the bulan-bulan.

A very good place to cast for bulan bulan.
The journey to the Bulan-Bulan paradise which took us about 5 minutes. The future's anglers, Peter, Fernandez and George.

After about an hour casting for Bulan-Bulan, we moved to another spot. We went to search for Haruan. With Peter, as our guide today, we went to Taman Airport. There, we saw a very promising drain. George and Fernandez casted their line and with just two casts, they managed to land two good sized haruan. As for Jepp and I, we were not able to get any.

After a while, we went to another spot. There were a few strikes but no hook up. Anyway, it's a good place to cast for haruan.
The third spot we went today.
