Doraemon Fiesta!!! Mackerels didn't bite btw...

Assalaam aleykom WBT. As promised, I am posting  pics from our latest fishing trip. As usual, the main target was the magnificent ikan tenggiri, or the spanish mackerel bak kata orang putih. However, this time  around the mackerels were on holiday, so we settled for the bottom-feeders instead (casting sessions were almost non-existent! Even by the great sifu Mohet, who did not cast at all!!!) Wokeh, below are the details of our fishing trip :D
  • Departure jetty: Jeti Tanjung Dawai, Kedah
  • Destination(s): Kok Ribu, Karang 3000, Tuas Hantu and Tuas Pak Tam (Akhmal, plz correct me if I am wrong here, tq)
  • Team members: Sifu Mohet, Pak Anjang, Pengarah JPJ Taiping (forget the name, mintak mahap), Akhmal Ikan Tenggiri, Cikgu Othman, Nasir Honeywell and of course, Alfian Troxion dot Blogspot dot Com
  • Tekong (bot owner, driver and fishing spot locator): Pak Tam
  • Boat Type: 100% fiber (diesel engine, berapa CC... tak periksa pulak)
  • Targeted species: Spanish Mackerel
  • Species caught: Bottom Feeders... mostly DORAEMONS!!! Zero mackerels... di mana kau wahai Tenggiri...

Tragedy - we saw a dead dolphin 
(or at least that's what we thought it was... nampak
macam seal pon ada jugak from certain angles)

The first destination was Kok Ribu (ke Kok seribu?). But after 10-minutes of unfruitful casting, we decided to move to other locations. All proved futile as the mackerels a.k.a. tenggiri were simply not biting. They weren't even in the neighborhood from the look of things. Tapi takpa... layan bottom saja laa (meaning, to lower the bait until it hits the sea bed, and then just wait for the fish to bite)... No casting casting for tenggiri dah (casting is where you hurl the bait a fair distance away from the boat, let it sink for ~1-minute, and then reel it back in, slowly).

Discussing on the best destination
Doraemons caught on all of the apollo hooks
(this sight is commonly for ikan kembong borek, not doraemons)
Pak Anjang and his ikan merah
Alhamdulillaah... my first kerapu... sama dengan
kerapu bara ke?
Many were amazed that the kerapu took the bait. This
is also an uncommon scene. I used an ikan selar's 
head as bait, which seemed to work.
Pak Tam's gulai jenahak n merah.
We "borrowed" some garlic and challots from
another nearby boat. Pak Tam lupa pulak bawak
bahan mentaaah. Thank God for the other boat :D 
 
Sifu Mohet enjoying his catch (he caught one of the
two jenahaks... or was it both him?... Lupa...) 

At the end of the day, I took home most of the fish. Since the main target was not caught (tenggiri), most of the anglers were not keen in bringing home the catch. Furthermore, unlike the tenggiri, these fishes had scales, which required de-scaling (betul ke term ni... kira buang sisik la... hehehe). Leceh nak buat, which I can totally understand.

Anywayz, since my wife liked to eat fish, and my maid is allergic to chicken (but ok with fish), I volunteered to take home most of the catch (40++ ekor jugak la...). Ni mmg volunteer ye, sebb kalau tak, mmg takde orang nak bawak balik ikan2 tu. Rugi la pulak to let all that fresh fish go to waste. Upon arriving at my home in Nibong Tebal (around 10:00pm), I started to scale the fishes, and discard their innerds. Since there were like 40++ fish (with 32 being Doraemons), it took me around 3-hours to go thru all the fish. And since there were too many, I decided to just chop of their heads so that I wouldn't have to remove the gills/insang. Kecut dan hanyir jugak la jari-jari tangan lepas tu. Hehehe... indeed a tiring experience. But at the end of the day (early morning is more like it), I felt satisfied because I managed to fill the freezer with fresh fish... Okes. Below are some pics...
 
The whole loot...

Ini lah dia Doraemon

In all, alhamdulillaah. We managed to get lots of bottom feeders, and evertying went ok. Everyone was safe, and nothng untoward happened (e.g. sea-sickness, boat problems, storm, etc.). Orait... tq for reading iya :D Assalaam aleykom WBT.
