ok guys, i can't really come up with the 'catch / time of catch' list because 1st, i don't know the name of all the fishes, GANJIL! PAYAH! and 2nd, it was pretty chaotic i don't know who caught what at what time lol [i was sleepy the whole time too kekeke]. so i guess its better for me to explain things in a story basis. once a upon a time, 6 friends went for...lol. i'll start off by congratulating Met to have finally joined us for a fishing session and yes, ia pakai baju lawa2, bawa binoculars and some books on birds too lol but the main thing is he managed to catch his first utik! so Welcome to the club Met!! haha the highlight was on Met in the morning for catching the first fish of the day. he was away from the rod but thankfully Zazu was around to put up a fight with the fish. A few minutes later, the line seemed to be stuck, not intending to lose the line, the rod was passed around to Met and me for a few tries. I released the line bit by bit and managed to get the line free [the fish must've swam and free the line somehow]. After that Met just reeled it in and there it is, Lauk Putih! our hands were pretty much empty after that. we had lunch and decided to continue fishing at 2pm. we set up and descended the boat down onto the water and with the help of Zazu's high tech plastic paddles lol the journey began. Crew on board: Mawi, Fadhil & Metis. while they were busy casting along the mangroves, Zazu and I was watching them from a distance and suddenly we saw a big fish JUMPED out of the water! about 5 meters away from the boat! 3 to 4 feet high in the air! amazingly, people on the boat didn't see it but they heard the splash. It was pretty big, length of an arm or even longer and a white body. nda ku tau ikan apa. then Zazu went onboard to join them after that. Met said that he had a big encounter but it got away. The one who caught fishes on the boat was Fadhil and they weren't oridinary looking fish. He caught 2 fishes of the same species that we all don't know what its called. here's the picture. mengitang, ikan Tambak pulang naik. Its called 'Mengitang', so Kitang was expected not Tambak, tukar jadi 'Menambak' karang lol Metis caught his second fish, Umpak, somewhere in that time frame i think. Don't know much details cause i was taking a short nap. With the last of our live prawn, Farhan hit the strike! and this is what he caught!
starfish aka tapak sulaimanhaha of all the fishes in the sea/river, why a starfish???? its almost like someone is making a pratical joke hahaha with that catch, i was so entertained, it makes me wanna laugh just thinking about it! [as you have may noticed i didn't put utik as part of the highlights in this update but as a reminder, we did catch some lol even by using pusu as bait!] Summary:
- Farhan - flounder
- Zazu - tambak [umpan pusu]
- Mawi - tambak [semasa mengitang]
- Fadhil - ikan muncung x2 [masa arah boat]
- Danial - tambak [kirikan], starfish [umpan pusu]
- Metis - lauk putih, umpak, ikan alien
i'll add more pictures soon!
