    how much is the cost...wat tackle u all using...
  • Zendorf
    KOON_WEI:

    The total cost for the trip round est $1600 SDG.
    I got 6 ppl inclusive myself so around $260 SDG
    Everyone of us got prep extra of $100 SDG in case anything happen.
    For your info at Elly Kelong they only accept SDG.
    To Tanjung Pinang, You need to head to Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal (TMFT).
    Is wise to carry extra heavy sinker, not less than size 14.
    Water Current for this month seems powerful. Take note.
    I use Loomis & Frankin Pacific Stick 20-40lb for my rod
    Tica ST 558 with 50lb branded line.
    Well You might seems that with this equipment, is abit overkill. :shock:
    But this is what the local recommend.
    After this trip, I learn something very important and i like to share with you guys.
    Whatever the locals tell you and advice you.
    Mai Gai Kian. Change it.
    If not your trip is a sad one. :lol:

    Thank you guys.
    Maybe i can try on light - mid tackle next time.
    Sometimes light tackle can really prove something - A great exciting fight.

    8)

    Who ever interested, this a piece of info i like to share with you guys,
    Ah Kia told me that mid Apr - June current in TP region is nice.
    Do take note of the Moon status, cos it will affect greatly on your catch.
    Who ever planning to TP can take this info into your consideration.
    He didn told me about the sea state in these month will be like.
    But be prepare to bring some sea sick pills or sea sick bands. in case it get rough and spoilt your whole entire trip.

    Ah Kia is quite well known boatman and very hard to come by.
    So if anyone interested in booking him, try to be early and also your luck.
    All the best who is going to TP for fishing soon.

    Precisely, otherwise no one will come...but just be prepared for some aggresive weather changes from the ONE above....

    Zendorf, had checked with Elly,he's fully booked on weekends till Nov...but if say Tues - Thurs might have some free slots.

    I agree with you.
    Sadly my fishing team decide to give a try on Sibu Kelong in the 3rd quarter of 2005.
    TP trip will be in next year.
    Will be trying Sabah or somewhere East Malaysia.
    West Malaysia (Malacca Straits) I think i will not go even is free.
    Too High chances to meet up with pirates.
    Pai Seh, I am Navy personnel, i know the details.

    Planning date for TP still not firm but will be somewhere around Apr - June.
    Meantime will be doing deep research regarding TP regional water and current.

    BTW i like to ask something that i saw on that day we arrived on Elly Kelong.
    I saw 1 of your teammates playing a fishing vcd.
    Can i ask where did you get it and title of that vcd.
    It looks very interesting, describing the goodies of the metal jig that now on sales everywhere.

    So any great place that you can recommend????

    Well OK i see.
    That day i saw you guys thinking that can try on karaoke.
    But after i finished rearranging my tackle i happen to see that you guys watching that fishing vcd.

    If is not a problem can help me to ask your fishing mates regarding on that vcd.
