Catch Report: Casting in Rompin

Rompin is one of the most popular fishing destinations in Malaysia for many Singaporean. Though it is well known for the Sailfish fishing but there are many more other species to catch. 

Samuel, a frequent angler to Rompin decided to show Fred and his friends what Rompin can offer besides Sailfish.

As the day went by, Samuel chanced upon a decent size Queenfish.


Spanish Mackerel is one of the most sort after fish, being popular on the plate and exciting to catch.  Casting heavy  sinking minnow is a very effective way of catching them.

When the anglers are tired of casting, it is good to relax those aching muscles and do some squid fishing. Not only it is fun but no one can deny how good fresh squid taste.
