Kretam #3 2010

As this will be my last deep sea fishing trip this year, I was hoping that by organizing this trip, I will be able to have an enjoyable time fishing with my fishing buddies. Unfortunately, Mr Bob, Juini and Bartholomew were unable to join us - Jepp, Zizudini, Bakry and myself. Like usual, we followed Ah Kong's 400hp speed boat to Kretam.

Some of my catches were given to Juini who was not able to join us due to some personal problems. I will surely be back for deep sea fishing adventure again next year with better catches. For the time being, I will only go for inshore fishing.

spin fly

Tried the nymph fly Jepp gave me yesterday. It is cute and I think I need to start and try to make my own fly.
The target - gold fish and Japanese carp.
In less than a minute, I managed to get a solid hook up on the gold fish.
It was indeed my first fish on fly.
Location - fish pond at the compound of my house :).
I am lucky that the gold fish is still alive now. If it's dead, I'll surely get a scolding from my parents. Have to try the nymph fly in the wild soon.

Pulau Bai #4 2010

As planned few days ago, Jepp, Bakry and I went to Pulau Bai and Pulau Berhala. Fished from 7.30am to 3.30pm. The weather and current were good in the morning. We've caught a lot of golden and silver crocker, ikan jarang gigi, mata kucing, coral fish and also grouper.

We followed Nasib's boat.

It was about to rain at about 3.30m. We have to stop fishing even though the bite rate was good. Safety first......
