Any suggestions on a location for 3d2n fishing trip?

bobbins
Hi yall,

Will be having leave from the 28th dec - 2nd jan and im looking for suggestions on where would be a good location for a short fishing trip.

Never been overseas to fish before. Mainly do fresh water locally in Singapore. 

My friend and I aren't looking for any type of fishing (fresh water / sea) in particular. We're just looking for some suggestions.

Somewhere nearby would be ideal (malaysia / batam). Any fresh water spots you would recommend? Or kelong?



Thank you!

    So 2 Pax, and your budget bro?

    Yea 2 pax. Never planned a fishing trip before so im unsure how much to budget for a 3d2n trip to a kelong or some freah water spot.

    Currently in NS so budget isnt very high. How much would you say is a good amount to put aside for the trip?

    If this is going to be an RnR trip, book any resort in nongsapura batam that's within your budget. There is a pretty interesting long jetty (maybe 1/3 of bedok jetty) where you can get some selar, whitings, occasional stingray and cobia. Check out this interesting post http://sumantri-lifestylelifeskillblog.blogspot.sg/2017/04/wonderful-indonesia-3rd-turi-fish-tival.html.

    If you just want to get some quick and dirty fishing fight, i would suggest you join people here whom are looking for kakis towards SCS.

    Thanks for the suggestion!

    Will definitely look into that. Any recommendations for kelong? Or will that be expensive? Would be great to have more options.

    Also, is the location you recommended more towards luring or baiting?

    Unfortunately the best kelong around pulau sibu areas were all dismantle for the sake of protecting the reef ordered by the johor royal family. The nearest kelong now is in Penyabong. Fishing wise is not that fantastic as it build on a very shallow sea bed (10m). You may check it out on their FB page. https://www.facebook.com/ahfatt.kelongfishing/ Btw if you are on a budget, you can take a bus from Johor larkin bus station to Penyabong jetty for the cost 35rm each (single trip). From Singapore, just head to queen street and take any bus there to larkin.

    As for nongsapura jetty, luring provide great results with silver trevally (nothing bigger than 800g). Bring some squid jigs along, during high tide you may catch huge arrow heads there.

    Wow, sounds good! I heard that the current water condition isnt tok great due to the time of year. I know it would  affect kelong, jetty fishing should be alright?

    Also, would you guys recommend jetty or paid pond (in Malaysia)

    ​You are not allowed to fish on Jetty in Malaysia (by law). Just go to paid ponds instead, nothing fantastic about those when you can do it here in SG, Pasir ris pond is actually quite popular even johorians came over for it. If you want some CnR fun, check out the pond in Neo Tiew.

    Have anyone tried fishing at Temenggor or lake kenyir? Saw some pictures of people going there to catch snakeheads.

    Was wondering if it is recommended, if so how should i plan a trip there? (If it isnt too expensive)

    If you have a car, by all means go for it. You can rent a boat house for 3 to 5 days. Catch rate seems to be good when there is a heavy downpour the day before. Bring lots of commando grade mozzie repellents, bring snake anti venom. Message them on FB for more details. https://www.facebook.com/Boathouse-Casuarina-Temenggor-1-283430458736976/ https://www.facebook.com/houseboatkelisakenyir/

    Fishing wise not that fantastic nowadays as there are few dams destroyed for construction of bridges for car. However you can get a feel of peacefulness there.

    If you don't drive and will be travelling on public transport, you can take a bus from Larkin to Perak. http://www.catchthatbus.com/buses/grik-bus-tickets

    I think the overall cost if you have a car would be between 1000RM to 2000RM. Without a car, it may cost between 1500RM to 3000RM. Not sure whether is that considered expensive.

    Another place to consider is this called Kelong Paradise. Not sure if its still operating as i went there 5 yrs ago. Its a concrete constructed kelong near Kuala Selangor (KL). Please try calling them to see if its operating still.
