Jack during Ramadhan

Monday 23 August 2010 0 comments

Assalamualaikum and 안 녕! Time has been limited for me to go out casting for a good fish. I've been busy with work and attending courses and the fasting month adds the limitation to it. But last week, after my Banksman course at ATDC Seria, I decided to go for a quick cast. Went to the usual spot but that time the tide was really low. Anyways, I decided to give it a go and after the 2nd cast, something gave a good thug on my Flit lure. It was a missed strike and I think due to the fast current flowing out, whatever it was...failed to hit a 100% hook up. I kept trying and trying, I caught something and instantly I thought it might be a Barra but as it got closer, it became clear that it was a Mangrove Jack. It was good enough as it was my first strike for the month of Ramadan. After that, I headed home looking forward to sungkai (break fast).

Still wearing my coverall (My version of PPE. Haha!)

NOTE: Jack was "Catch & Release" and to all my Muslim friends, enjoy your fasting month of Ramadhan. PUASA JANGAN NDA PUASA!! HAHA!

Frenzy on a rainy Sunday morning

Assalamualaikum and 안 녕! "What a day!" TK saying it with disbelief and has to be his best personal record. A Tarpon and 4 Barramundi were successfully caught by him using only one lure which was a Rapala Shad Rap Fire-Tiger. Feeling a little envious with his catch, I managed to catch 2 Mangrove Jacks and a Tarpon, Syukur-lah. One Barra got away and only the Barra's scale were left intact to my treble hook. Today we seemed to be in favor on using a Rapala Shad Rap lure and TK's lure proved to be popular amongst the Barras. Congrats to TK with his catch and record and I hope the next trip will be the same as today. Oh, I forgot! I also have a picture of a Barra, ... hehe. Enjoy the pics! (^^,)
