************It has been quite some time I have not go for deep sea fishing with my fishing team, the Pro-Anglers Team, I missed to go fishing with all the buddies. Since everyone are busy with their works and life, it is difficult to find a suitable time going fishing together, and I have no idea how many times I have to reject the team’s invitation to go for fishing. Dude, I am so sorry!
But after so many times cancelling the fishing trip, we managed to make it happen. Everyone said yes to go fishing just few days before Ramadhan ended. We called our trip as “Trip Penutup Ramadhan 2 hari 1 Malam”. My wife asked why should I go when it is just few days away before (almost) Raya? She has no idea how much I am ‘craving’ (looking forward) for this fishing trip.
|The rented fishing ship|
Skipper : Azsme Akmad
We rent a fishing ship that could fit up to 10 anglers in one time, and the boat manoeuvres by an experienced skipper named Azsme Ahmad. He has experienced handling a fishing boat for over 10 years. He is a nice friendly man, easy to approach and communicate well with us.

Along the way to the fishing location, the ship crew always ensures the condition of the ship is clean and comfortable for us, and prepares food and drink menus on time. A resting room for relaxing and sleeping pens is also well-kept. Mattress and pillows are provided in the sleeping area. Toilets are also equipped with water facilities and are always clean, as well as well-kept kitchen space.
This fishing trip has its own challenges. The conditions of the sea and the weather are in good condition all the way to the fishing location, and upon arrival at our location we begin our fishing activities, but it was difficult to get fish. Various techniques were used such as Apolo technique 4 to 6 hooks, 1 to 2 hooks, jigs, medium hooks, using feeds such as squid, baskets, fish fillets and titir but were still unsuccessful to caught fish in a ‘reasonable’ amount.

"when mr.Husband wanted to be the co-pilot!"
Skipper Azsme moves the fishing boats to several other locations around Mengalun, but it seems our baits do not attract fish! We did not give up and kept trying to get fish. However, we did not get much fish *sighed*.
The next day, we were tested with bad weather, where suddenly the big waves and winds came, and made us difficult to catch fish and could bring harm to us, the anglers. The turbulent sea conditions made our movements limited, and we had to face the bad weather for 4 hours until we returned to the destination, and fortunately skipper Azsme was able to steer the fishing ship very well.
Although the catching was less than what we expected, but we were happy managed to spend some time with our team mates and we thanked skipper Azsme handling the fishing ship calmly despite the bad weather and bring us home safely.
We reached our destination back around afternoon, and I safely reached home around 4pm. Tired? Of course, but looking forward for the next fishing trip! But not too soon since wife will deliver our baby anytime in August this year!
