Kretam or Bakungan?

After a week of hard work by our organizer ( Jepp ) to organize this trip, finally, we went to Bakungan last Sunday July 5th, 2009. We were supposed to go to Kretam but the boatman stopped his 200hp speedboat at Bakungan area. He was quite a lazy boatman and he didn't have good 'point' in his GPS system. No wonder why people were laughing at us when we told them that we were following him.
Anyway, it was a good trip and quite successful. Bob and Jepp managed to test their new reel and rod. Both of them fought with giant stingrays for nearly half an hour ( refer to ) and unluckily, the stingrays managed to escape. If I'm not mistaken, we have the most catch that day compared to the other boats going to Kretam and Taganak. This trip cost RM1000.

Proudly present the organizer of this trip, Jepp.
Overall, everyone was satisfied. We'll have another trip to Kretam at the end of this month. I hope all of us will be able to go out fishing together again. I believed my friends are making a report about this trip in their blog. Feel free to browse them in my Favourite Links ( Donny's and Jepp's Blog ).
