Fishing and picnicking

Went to hunt for sebarau with Jepp, Bakry and Rasidan. The journey took about 4 hours and it was quite tiring. We started our journey at about 7.00am.

My weapon for today ( Navi 2000 and Alivio 2500FB ).
We followed Jepp's 'Blue Horse' to our destination.
The first spot which was about 2 1/2 hours journey from Sandakan.
There were a lot of strike in this spot but we were not able to get any hook up.
The second spot we went. It was about 45 minutes drive from the first spot.
It was almost 11.00am when we reached there. It was a very potential spot hunting for sebarau ( Hampala Barb ) but the water was cloudy.
Jepp ( doing his fly fishing ) lost a lot of fly lures in this spot.
With an 'in-line spinner bait', Bakry managed to land this sebarau.
After fly fishing and casting at the second spot, we went to 'Sungai Bogel'.
The water was crystal clear and the scenery was awesome.
Bakry, casting under a tree.
Finally, after few hours of casting, I managed to land this kelah with an in-line spinner bait.
Went for swimming and picnicking at Sungai Maliau at about 4.30pm.
It was a very tiring trip and yet, it's worth it. I really enjoyed the chicken wings marinated by Bakry and grilled by Rasidan :) .A lampam jawa caught by Bakry just a few minuted before we ended this trip.
Hope to have another session of fishing and picnicking trip again.

Kretam #2 2010

Went to Kretam today ( May 8th, 2010 ) with Jason, Donny, Bob, Bakry, Jepp, Bart and Juini. This time we followed Ah Kong's boat. The weather and current were good but to some of us, the rate of the fish bite was not that satisfactory.
