Tee King Chong Merchong Fishing August 2022

The story of the trip...

It's been too long since we visited Merchong so we hastily arranged a 1 day sortie to Merchong since the restrictions have lifted. It was a self drive trip so we had a little flexibility. 

Showing the trip report in a photo journey way :)

First step was 古来友明 Restaurant Yuw Meng over at Kulai where we had our dinner!

Their signature pork ribs

Fried ice cream! Another signature of theirs.

Their hokkien mee is still good. I would say the best in JB.

Pineapple pork intestines was surprisingly good.

Fried squirrel!

Steamed prawns two styles

Freshly ground fruit juice

First we settled into the chalet... How nostalgic!

The rustic feels

Private jetty

Even the room was so familiar

Managed to get a few sotongs at nail island aka pulau berhala

The trusty lunch box

Love the space of the boat!

Can fit 8 pax easily

Ah Chong sort of turned into a rockstar and kept casting but kept getting the thrash fish. Hmmm...

Shark! No, Cobia...

Heavy! Foul hooked...

Lawrence nailed one on udang kosong

Always a sight to behold!
Sotong saved the day

The storm came and we had to go in early... but not much. Previously we had luck with luring for wild mangrove jack and barracuda in the river but it was dead today.

See?

Not ideal because bottom fishing was poor although we had a few good fish bust us off. Sotong saved the day!

Yes! Freshly steamed sotong...

And fried miss wong!

Time to fillet some cobia...

Here is also some footage of the best fishing gaff-man in Singapore.
