Madi told me a long time ago, he caught his 1st silver barra (in Kuantan) just under Tangjung lumpur's Bridge using ' udang pasar'.
It is the mighty Sungai Kuantan Estuary.. a kilometre away from the open sea and I had bad experiences with kuantan river. I don't have good catch here!!! I fish here since I was a kid, The duris dan sesirats are plenty and having them on your hook can really spoil your day.
But, what the hell. I gave it a go along with babyface and big joe.
* Sesirat- a type of eel
* Duri - a type of cat fish
On the way home, we stop at Kg. Kurnia to search for 'rent a boat' service. There are at least 3 operators we came across.
We decided to return here again next week for giant prawns.
In the meantime, lets pray the weather next week will be ok and the prawns are in their feeding mood.
Sg Belat Trawler FactoryThe making of a Trawler. We were amazed, stunned and happy to see such thing exist in Kuantan. It is a work of art and perfection.
The green and brown trawlers are brand sparkling new... while the blue one on the left are docked for refurbish process/ repairing.
