22/04/09 - 24/04/09 Tanjung Pinang Fishing CR: Wisata Bahari V

Hoooooooohooooooooooo! I'm finally back guys! Not a bad trip for me as i managed to test my tackle to the max! So far, its a TP trip in which i got quite a fair bit of action although i didnt really try jigging as i was sleeping during the day time. We had our lunch at TP at Ah Khiang's restaurant and i ate some delicious hei po... It was damn siok siok. The last trip with Ah Khiang was with Wisata Bahari I but this time we are taking his no.5... Its an even bigger boat and there is lots of space for us to fish... Ah Khiang is to be our captain but he has gone to SG Hospital for some treatment because he got an illness so no choice we had his Nephew Ronald with us.

I guess i'm just too spoilt by Yamashita's flawless jigs...Kekeke... Anyway, nothing landed on the VFOX.

But soon, the itch began to fester and with the ebbing of the rainy season, Chocolate Land can finally return to its former glory! I was to bring a VIP yesterday to the haven but both of us couldn't wake up. As a result, i was peering at the skies almost every few hours on Saturday... I hoped it wouldnt rain... All was well and today morning, we bashed in to the haven. Good golly, the sky was clear today and by 635am it was already wayyy bright. Bad estimation on my part! Now we would miss the daybreak timing! Hit the first area but nothing seemed interested although there were the usual big boofs beside the water plants. My my... I guess i CNR-ed too many Snakes! They weren't interested in any surface chugs or frogs! Moved on to the next area with the VIP. This time, the VIP had a good orientation on the whole terrain and began castin
