Pekan 12-13 July 2008

Been on hiatus on my blog for quite sometime. Reason being, the catches for the past 3 trips were not as productive as the earlier trips. That would mean there are less interesting photos to be posted :(. Last week we've headed to Pekan again ith Ck, Jason and Thum. It would be CK's first ever trip to Pekan.
First timer luck was on his side as he hit the first fish in the morning and was rewarded with a 3kg`ish Coral Trout. Not bad for a first timer! The day has been quite slow with only baby table sized groupers landed. At about 3pm in the evening, while everyone's morale was low, 2 cuttlefish came up and tried hard to attack the jigs that was left on the water surface !
Without waiting any further, boatman and Thum rigged on their eging lures and hit cuttlefish after cuttlefish. At the end of the day, we had a total of 23 cuttlefishes! On the 2nd day, action was still pretty much slow after Thum landed his rainbow runner. Was quite bored for a moment until CK yelling he got a hook up. 20 minutes fight and he landed a cobia. At the end of the day, as we were happily teasing Ck that he got all the first timer luck and everybody was getting 0 catches, I managed to get a hookup which i thought it was hooked on to some coral but it turns out to be a green eyed grouper. Apologize if my writing is abit long as i've not written in a long long time :P
Ahh ...good morning Pekan !Lucky CK with his first fish in Pekan, his first Coral Trout
