This is my first time organizing such trip as my Indonesia counterpart is not healthy to assist me with such. Me and a friend have been there in 2016 and the trip results as shown in pics. Fishing is very addictive there. Recently Pony Liu (Jigging Master) and HeartyRise crew have been up there testing their new range of rods and reel.
