Recently me and my group of friends went to the Pulau hantu "Ghost island" for a night of fishing, it was my 2nd time to this island.
To know more about this island pls click here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pulau_Hantu
The first time there was actually a boat trip for light jigging in southen islands area but we had a half time break so the boatman bring us to the ghost island for a rest. when the boat enter the lagoon i saw the breakers at the side looks good and feel good to try some lure casting. After some rest me and my kaki's took some lures over for a try, on our way walking over we saw some anglers baiting on the island jetty. when we bypass them i seems to hear them saying something like we are wasting time with lures etc.....
Oh well we will show them that they are wrong hahaha 1 landed a barramundi after a few cast right in front of them on the breaker :) ibr also landed 1 after me hahaha.
So our boatman say let's hop on we go over with the boat lol we landed another good 6 pcs of barramundi on lure right in front of them. Best thing was few of them went on the breaker to try but all they had was watching us landing fish 1 after another.
So this time we planned this trip to the island again and hope the barramundi's are still around.
Reach the island at about 9.30pm water was still kinda low so we take our time setting up our stuff and had our dinner. Some of the guys can't wait till the water level gets higher so they went off trying their luck but lol all return with eggs.
At about 2 plus am Me,thomas and blur blur decided to start fishing as the tide is coming up already. Hmmm sometimes when your luck is good in fishing nothing can stop you hahaha on my first...... cast the rubber just landed onto the water i had a take "GOAL KEEPER" i did not even do anything hahaha.
