Slow Jigging Lumut, Malaysia

My pursuit for gaining more experience in slow jigging in South East Asia brought me to Lumut, Perak this time around. I have heard so much about big groupers known locally as “Tong Gas” being landed in this stretch of water off Pulau Jarak and hence our mission for this trip was to land one of these “Tong Gas”. Invited by the great folks of Evo City Enterprise, we boarded “DARK WATER”, a powerful speedboat skippered by Thomas. Thomas has been fishing in this area for a long time and is known to produce good results. He is no stranger to slow jigging too as this latest trend of fishing has brought many anglers on board his boat. Thomas himself himself is a passionate angler. And so onward with our catch report!
