Pekan March 2012 Jigging

Hi guys, it's been a few days since i got back from fishing in Malaysia, Pekan. Bringing a sunburn back to the office is a challenging affair! The air con in the office seems to make the skin even more dry!

I'll be heading off to Desaru in a few hours time so i'll keep this sweet and short so that fishing kakis heading off to the region this few days can have a good update. The spanish mackeral or tengerri is IN. Have heard and seen reports from Rompin, Pekan, Desaru that they are in! So prepare your steel wire and jigs to fish these toothy fishes!

During my trip to Pekan last week, we had great fun with the light jigs and ebeks (diamond trevally). These fish typically take out half the line on your spool before they tire and they are great fun on PE 1 tackle. The jigs we are using are from 30g onwards and we had loads of fun. First day was pretty rough due to typhoon pakhar which hit vietnam. But second day was quite calm overall.

How we jigged these fishes were simple... we let the jig sink to the bottom and we do moderate speed jigging emphasizing more on the flutter than the speed. We landed around 8 Ebek on the first day with over 12 misses/drops.

2nd day was hilarious as Rickey hooked up a sailfish on Majorcraft go emotion 4-8lbs! I was laughing at him when my Maria Oiran madai got a hit at the bottom and a Sailfish took the madai jig! Crazy epic stuff if you ask me!
