Many months back heard from some of my kaki about this desaru light hse were producing quite a big number of queenfish and skipjack tuna aka bonito on light jigging, also watched some videos from rod & line and kingfisher. So we decided to gave it a try.
So i call up fishing buddy to book a slot with them as they do organize such trips to desaru.
On Aug 29th 6AM morning we reach fishing buddy "toa payoh" to meet up with our guide of the day Raymond. After an hour plus of driving raymond stoped by a place for breakfast.
There is a mini mart there too
After everything is done we moved off to the beach of desaru where the boat is waiting for us.
The sand of desaru was hard lol even vehicles can drive on it.
The boat was kinda comfortable lol cos its big enough
Actually i had a bad feeling about the weather while traveling up to desaru but hai... what to do there is no turning back...lol
The closer we get to the light hse, the darker the sky gets lol
When we about to reach the light hse we saw a few big splashes on the surface, everyone was so excited hahaha. On my first drop with the new white rabbit Mj sardines 80G i had a take but unable to set that fellow in lol.
Sh was the first to land a queen on this trip, it was a small one and also the only one fish he took photo with on this trip lol.
Hmmm somehow the boatman seem to be unable to park the boat at the right spot lol just don't know why wherever we are, the fishes seem to be on the other side everytime the boatman move.
Our final spot was parked very near to the light hse, we are very sure the fishes are around. We could see them chasing our jig all the way back to the boat but just not taking. I'm so lucky that i hooked a queen on its body during the chase with the white rabbit jig.
A few Small ones were landed too by the others but no photo taken kekeke.
The weather suddenly changed strong winds start to blow, wave was kinda high boatman kinda worry lol. so he told us we have to leave and go for shelter near to the shore.
AND THAT WAS THE END OF OUR JIGGING TRIP!
So the boatman bring us to a near shore spot to do bottom fishing , luckly we had some live prawns kekeke. Some small groupers and parrot was landed, raymond landed 2 good size Coral Trout.
When the rain stopped io think someone asked the boatman if we are able to return to the light hse for jigging the boatman said its to far away liao. But from what i see i think the boatman was to lazy to go back and its not becos of to far ......
Due to tide we got to call it a day early or else boat will not be able to go back lol.
Sad sad what a sad trip again, this year we had all the bad things happening to us on trips.......
Last night we ate the Coral Trout at a muslim store yummy yummy
