Sibu Kelongs are really closing down

It's now official... Sibu Kelongs will be officially closed this 6 October 2013 as Ah Fatt Kelong has posted on their Facebook that kelong will be closed this 6 October and torn down 7 October.... A kaki of mine called the other kelongs and it was the same for Ah Ngan (Wing Sing) kelong and Hotboys Kelong as well. The whole kelong saga has come to a sad ending and all of us will miss the fishing action and relaxation on the kelong.

The days of eging, selar jigging and saitoh jigging will be over. It was there that I caught my record size baktao and my record squid haul. It was also there that many strangers became my friends as we shared our fishing knowledge, tips and tricks.

And... the days of people searching Google for sibu kelong fishing will be over.... less traffic for my blog :(

Some of my memories at the kelong..... sigh.... it was probably the place where I pick up much interest in eging which led to my blog's name anyway. Guess next time have to go penyabong or aceh kelong or go chia soon kelong to bluff ourselves that we are in sibu. Anyone volunteer to bring the dinner bell?
