Never really been back out to deep sea fishing since my last trip to Tg.Pinang in 2004. When our boat was boarded by their “very own pirates” pointing AK47’s at the members. Frozen back in time, I still remember how dangerous that situation was and esp, when Sharon was there with me on her first trip out to a 3D2N trip.
Fast Forward another 7years and here I was going to give Sedili a try. However due to some unfortunate circumstances, Don had to pull out his slot. We all met up really early at the meeting point at 0230hrs on a Saturday Morning. After getting to know the rest of the people that I was going to fish with.. We move on to our destination!
First stop was to get 150pcs of prawns in the middle of the night. With some confusion of the shop location as the owner moved house. We finally sorted it out and before we knew it, we were on the boat heading out to sea at approximate 545am! I took a quick nap and work up at about 715 and managed to catch a nice sunrise!
We reach the first stop and hoping to land the big one came to everyone’s mind. But it was not meant to be. No signs of the much said tenggiri aka spanish macks! All we had were fishes that look quite abit like baby bonito cross with Kambong!
We changed almost 2 spots.. along the way picking up their bubu traps they have laid previously.
Total catch from those bubu were 1 lobster!!! 2 groupers about 7.5kg and 3kg respectivily and some others snappers!!
Soon most of the anglers were knocked out by the extreme choppy waters! Human Berley were been contributed to the ocean! Soon it was time to head back. It was really really really poor catch that day. However the company was great! The weather was abit unkind to us and the fish weren’t around to play. Well guess it happens when it comes to fishing. We always have that sort of days even on the kayaks.
Thanks guys for the wonderful trip out! Maybe next time, the seas would be kind to us and provide us with better weather and better day’s of fishing! At least all of us manage to bring back an estimate of 6kgs of fish 🙂 Thanks Zul for organizing such a trip 🙂
