On the 15th March my sister and I revisited Pulau Bai. We were accompanied by two anglers ,Ustad Isa and Bob. This trip supposedly a 7 person trip because the fishing boat can accommodate 12 persons but due to some reasons the others cancelled their participation last minute. Being only 4 persons and a boatman in the spacious boat we could fish comfortably without any tangled lines. We started fishing at 7.30am until 3.00pm. It is a bit windy and the sea was a bit rough on that day.
Usually anglers fish in this area will use a good casting rod and a 4000 size reel should be sufficient because the fish here are not big. I used a casting rod and Abu cardinal 304 and underestimated the fish here for not being a good fighter however I was wrong. I got a hook up that managed to reel out my line and at the end due to my carelessness the 20lb braided line exploded. The suspected culprit is a stingray. All in all I had a great time fishing here.
