Pulau Sibu Light Jigging Mania!

Guess what you’ll get when you are fishing with a bunch of keen fishos just over their 20’s ? Plenty of fun and laughter! It sure makes one feel much younger! I was honoured to be invited by Thomas who regularly fishes the waters around Pulau Sibu, just off Johore’s eastern coast . The water depth is not deep and usually jigs of less than 40 grams are used. However, due to windy conditions of late, we had to use some jigs up to 60 grams. It was a one-day micro jigging trip and I was impressed by our captain, James’ experience and knowledge of the area we fished.

Longfin trevally are one of the many species that can be caught on Micro Jigs

Longfin trevally are great fun on micro jigging tackle!
