Overnight fishing in Kretam.

Have been dreaming of getting a Spanish Mackerel for quite a long time. So, Adzry and I planned a trip to Kretam two weeks earlier. Faced a lot of problems organising this trip and I won't be planning any trip like this again in the future.

Date : 30-31 July 2011
Time : 9am ( 30 July 2011 ) - 9am ( 31 July 2011 )
Place : Kretam
Boatman : Bahri
Cost : RM1250
The members of the trip include myself, Adzry, Bob, Jason, Edrian, Vensaid, Andrew, Assan and Murad. There were not many pictures taken as there were not many good catches for this trip.

This trip ended up with myself and Andrew having no catch at all. While the others had to be satisfied with only a few small sizes fish and best of all, I had finally got the chance to take a picture with this Spanish Mackerel caught by Bahri the boatman.
Having no plan of going for any overnight fishing trip again for the time being, here, my Saltiga and my Slimmax bid farewell for overnight fishing trips. Thank you for the fun and laughter shared among all the anglers.

It was not a successful trip. We will be going to Kretam on the 30-31 July 2011. We expect the catch and the fight in Kretam will be better than this trip.
