Hahaha... today I will be posting about the ever boring topic of (semi)-deep sea fishing :) As mentioned in Mr Azrul Hazri's blog --> Myself, Himself, Akhmal, Akhmal's Dad, Akhmal's Uncle and Sifu Mohet (along with the bot owner, or TEKONG, Pak Andak Halim) will be pushing off to Yan Kedah in the early hours of tomorrow morning. The destination? One (or maybe more than one) of the TUAS-es in the Yan Sea. Our target? Of course, the Spanish Mackerel, or Ikan Tenggiri.
Will not want to make a long post, because Mat Nabil won't read lengthy posts. See Mat Nabil... I am thinking about you here... kekekekeke. Dont angry Mat Nabil... joke2 only :D Anywayz... Alhamdulillaah... managed to buy a new reel... or more familiarly known as the 'machine' or 'mesin' among fishing folk. Got it for RM140 from KEDAI MEMANCING BERJAYA in Parit Buntar. RM140 is actually a not-so-expensive price for a reel. The very good ones start from RM330. The digital ones... walla weh sudarmaji... can decrease yer bank account by RM2k++ or MORE!!! Gulp! But since I'm not a HANTU PANCING... (nor do I see myself as a KAKI PANCING), getting an RM140 reel is ok already.... But aaa... the sad thing is that... kat Penang buleh dapat dalam RM100... hehehehe. Kos g parit buntar RM40 la gamaknye :P
Annywayz... It's a 4000 model, so the line length should suffice for (semi)-deep sea fishing. The Model? SHIMANO SIDESTAB 4000RE :) The pics? As shown below. Okes. Please pray for our safety and well being durin and after this trip :) And also, pray also so that Allaah gives us all good rozqi of Tenggiri fish (same as the boats before us... one got 52 ekoq!!!).
Okes... Adios muchachos amigos senyoritas. Assalaam aleykom WBT and tq for dropping by.
Overall view :) My first very own fishing reel :D
View tergolek sket...
Testing MACRO phone camera... 2mp jugak, but better image stabilization than my lost LG...
Ok. This switch toggles between uni-directional spinning and bi-directional spinning... by spinning I mean... time pusing nak tarik line masuk balik time dapat ikan... make sense? :-?
This pemusing controls the stress level of the reel. The tighter you pusing, the harder it is for the line to escape the reel :) Normally, benda ni dekat bahagian atas/depan. But that's why I bought this model... cuz it's a bit different :)
Press that button, and you can disassemble the reel (ada ke perkataan disassemble?)
SHIMANO... dulu2 masa kecik, I knew Shimano as a BMX accesorry... Brek Shimano... Rim Shimano... Dah besar2 ni only I know ada brand2 barang pancing Shimano :D Nihon-jin desu yo!!!
