Report from Daren Ong on his boat’s exploits:
We were hunting for Tetanda (small Jenahaks up to 2-3kgs) and small groupers near by the mangrove infront of Pulau Ketam jetty and stumble on a large school of Hard Head Sea Catfish with non-stop action of hookups up to 16 Hard Head Sea Catfish until we gave up because it was already 4.30 pm, if we stayed longer, we might just land more and more Belukangs! YF Lim caught the Mantis Prawn with a sotong bait along the mangrove area.
Senangin/Giant Threadfin/Indian Salmon/Threadfin salmon was caught nearby a fish farm in Pulau Ketam fish farm area. Pasar Prawns (dead bait) was the chosen bait for the fish.
Daren knows where the lubok lubok are and quite justifiably describes himself in Facebook as an NBA – Natural Born Angler. I wouldn’t know what an Indian Salmon looks like in a million years.
Here are some pictures:
