Berhala Got Fish!!

On the 25 Oct 2011, Bakry, Ismail and I took the opportunity to fish because our school's 'cuti peristiwa'. This is an opportunity to fish because most of the anglers are working right now. We decided to fish around Nunuyan and Berhala Island. Because only the 3 of us, we charted Mr. Kim Sui's boat.

 Ismail ,Kim Sui and I

 As usual we went to Tinosa to get live prawns as bait and we were lucky that day because we have sufficient live prawns for the whole day.

      We started fishing around 7.00 am and that morning was a bit slow, about 1 hour fishing we got nothing, not a single bite!!. So, Kim Sui suggested we drift and we manage to catch small groupers. Then, we went to Nunuyan Island to fish, Bakry got a strong pull and his line reeling out but not for long his rig was clean cut by a mysterious fish. We suspected a barracuda.Later, I got a small trevally and because of no fish biting after that, our Mr. Kim Sui took a nap zzzzzzzzzzzzz hehe. Once he woke up we went tu Berhala Island.

We fish near fish cages

 Kim Sui's catch of the day, a morray eel. He released the ell back to its habitat.
 Our secret weapon

Screeeeeettttt!! my reel screaming out line and it's a trevally. Finally about 3 pm I got a fish

Trevally on light tackle gives you adrenalin rush.

After we were harassed by eels and octopuses near the fish cages, it's time to go to Kim Sui's favorite fishing spot. Once again my Ryobi Artica 3000 pouring out 20lb line. Wohooo!!!!

 Agohot @ gerut-gerut @
Anybody know the fish's name in English ? White snapper or Bream?

 Its Bakry turn - after a whole day this was his first smile once we started fishing

 Screeeeeettttt!!!! another Agohot ...
I not managed to get Bakry's video because I was busy preparing the landing net ( sorry Rod, forgot to do that on our last Berhala trip)

Bak's and my catch - obviously his fish bigger than mine

At 5.45 pm we call it a day and these were our catch


This was the most successful Berhala trip that I experienced. Looking forward to fish here again.

Pole Fishing with My Mom

My Mom

The eel hooked by my mother actually

I remembered clearly the time my parents took me fishing in a small creek. I was 8 years old on that time. My mother prepared me a fishing pole using a tree branch and the thing I cannot forget is the hook. The hook was especially made for me from a staple of a box. The 'hook' just like a 5/0 size!!!. No wonder I did not get any fish.
Today, I went fishing with my mom. I prepared her all the fishing gear and as I tied the hook, I smiled to her and said "careful mom this hook is extreamly sharp". I know why she gave me a staple hook when I was a little boy.
My mom's luck was good today, usually I always out numbered her catch, but not this time. We had a good time together :-)

Testing Fiberglass 3WT Fly Rod

         I bought a wt3 fiberglass fly rod early last month from a friend who made custom fly rod as a hobby
 . Last Saturday I have the time to test the rod. The night before, heavy rain worries me that the water would be murky and might be not suitable to fly for some barbs. 
       As I arrived to the fishing area, my worries was true, the water was murky and fast flowing. I tied some scud and nymph especially for the barb. my first cast was a bad one, not familiar with the rod's action. After a few cast I managed to get the rhythm of the slow action rod. I fell in love to this rod completely. I got 3 barbs and a snakehead using nymph fly. Looking foward to use this rod again

This is the rod,reel and fly line

 Zizu and I went to cast snakehead today. We both cast around 3 pm for an hour. Only I got a hook up from this fishing spot and released back to its habitat.. I wonder where all the snakeheads go...
