Sailfishing Turned Into Road Trip

This is a long overdue post so i shall just briefly skip through. We were supposed to go out Sailfishing but the monsoon decided to huff and puff away. We were told by our boatman that chances were slim but we pressed ahead anyway while making alternative plans! In fact, the boatman went out alone past few days and caught so much Ebek that we stared at the fishes inside his freezer.

Needless to say, the title means no fishing! The monsoon was underway and there was no way we could fish. We went everywhere in search of a willing boatman... Mersing... Merchong... Nenasi... all said no. Well at least we found some contact hahaha....

We went to makan at Rompin and found out its the freshwater wild river prawn season but we didnt have any rod and reel with us. Yes, they use rod and reel for the prawns. So we decided to explore Endau Rompin National Park. Hahaha... Yup up the hill we went with nothing but a GPS.

After circling and circling we finally found a water hole.... and guess what there was a single SINGAPORE CAR there. And yup... inside the car were lots of fishing rods. But where was the guy?! He must be somewhere out there fishing!

It was too hot to fish so we just took some pictures and relaxed. I spotted some haruan but i doubt that will be any bigger fish here. The place seems to have flooded over.

Later, we made it to Damai Fishing Village in Johor. It's a nice place with nice big fishes. It's cheap at only 40RM 4 hrs but you pay for what you get and they don't release that much fishes. The sizes were okay though... i saw a 5kg ACK being sold back to the pond... Managed to land 1 ACK and burst another one when fish release.... we fished only 2 hrs and off we went for MORE FOOD!
