Desaru 2D1N Jigging and Night Stay at Pelangi Balau Resort

Just to share a short CR that happened a few weeks back. We were supposed to be having 2 solid days of day jigging and a good night's rest at Pelangi Balau Resort but due to a minor car accident while driving to the beach, we had to get our car fixed and we could not go out fishing for the day. So it was back to our resort after Captain Badol touched up the car with a little bit of marine glue. The resort was reasonably good as we paid around $200 SGD for 4 of us for a villa. It came with a simple breakfast too!

We could finally fish on the second day and we were raring to go!

Getting ready!

First stop was at the unjam or FAD (Fish Attracting Device)  to see if we could tempt some spanish mackeral aka batang... but they were holding too deep and our jigs couldn't get to them. We had a few bust offs when baiting though! I only managed to get a Chencaru on jig here...

Anyway, we packed up and made the boat trip to TU Lighthouse where there were boiling and feeding frenzy all around us!

I had a good fish hit my storm chug bug popper thrice but fail to get it cleanly! Sadly to say, the frenzy died down when they heard the boat approach.... but we still managed to get some Queenfish! The Queenfish were hitting Jamie's Ima Gune fast and hard.

Halfway through, Shawn got a big take on the drop and began his fight with his first Cobia ever on jig even! Way to go bro... Finally some good fish for you this year! Weighed up 22lbs on the Bogagrip... a good sized one.

Save the world guys... throw your rubbish elsewhere but the sea!

Happy ending?

It was late after Shawn's fish and we head back... I'll be raring to have a go at TU again! Looks like the fish are returning! On driving out, we helped some Singapore friends get their car out of the mud! They were there for some wind surfing or boarding and got their car stuck! Wouldn't wanna be them!
