Anyways, there will not be any report for this trip on my blog as I seriously couldn't find time to publish a longer post. However, Daniel of Team Rapala Singapore had posted an awesome write up of the trip on his blog. It was a fun fishing with the folks from Team Rapala and they're a bunch of nice fellas. The trip report is seperated into Part 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. Hope to fish again with you guys again.

As I've mentioned in the earlier posting, the wind and waves were pretty strong, pushed back everybody's confidence a little for the day. Little that everyone know, we were in for some awesome time for the trip ! The boatman have indicated that the Golden Snappers are really biting at this spot but our expectations was overthrown with a big surprise.

On the last day, we woke up beside White Rock Island, one of the islands of Pulau Sembilan archipelago. Sadly the current for the day was too strong for us to do anything be it jigging, casting or bottom. Letting 100gram jigs down into 90 feet of waters resulted flying the jig like a kite, watching them drift far far ahead.
Darren's cencaru landed on his Sabel Dance Pe1 and customed Abu reel
Boon Cheng landed a baby QueenfishLast fish landed on the trip using Inchiku jigs
