As for Saturday this week, I planned to go fishing in Pantai Dalit Tuaran. Fishing had just become one of my hobbies and I’d be doing it for relaxing myself from the strain caused by my assignments and my work. This is quite an exciting hobby as there will be a wait and there will be a catch. But sometime, there is not even a catch.
Back to the topic, was planned earlier we went to Pantai Dalit Tuaran as early as 4 morning and we actually make it a little bit late as the fishing crew was less than expected. I move from home about 4.45am in the morning and guess what, I was working on Machine.sg website which I will talk in other post. Then I go taking the other fishing crew for today, which is Mika, Daniel and Alex (Did not take any picture of us together). We move from Sepanggar to Pantai Dalit and it takes us around 20 minutes to reach there. I guess we start fishing around 6am or earlier.
Fishing there today was quite good, the water level is good plus the morning is not too hot and the wind is blowing quite nice and refreshing. For people who are fishing here, they are expecting to catch the one side fish also there is one fish that they called ‘Ikan Pisang’. And if you are lucky enough, you might catch ‘Ikan Pari’ as well. The bait that we use in this place is small fish which we call ‘Ikan Basung’ also cuttlefish. This bait we could bought it in the wet market for around RM3 per kilo for Ikan Basung and RM2 per kilo of the cuttlefish.
Fishing around 1 hour in the place, did not gives us any fish until then around 7am, we move to the other side of the beach which is a lot more deeper and we get our first catch there. And as expected, we did catch the one side fish. Right after the first catch, second and third catch was made on the same spot. Then after that catching had been a bit more difficult where the fish was only eating the bait but they did not take the whole bait at once.
As day went hotter, then I manage to went home around 9am. Leaving Daniel and Alex together as 2 other fishing crew come to that place. What I heard from them was, they did catch some ‘Ikan Pisang’ and they go fishing under the bridge near the fishing place as the day become more windy.
By the way, if you are interested to go fishing in this place, you can come by going to Shangri La Pantai Dalit Tuaran. Follow the road to the Shangri La and take left turn when you see the Shangri La building. after the left turn, just follow the road until you reach the gravel road and follow the gravel road until to a junction which will head to the beach. The junction is the first junction on your right. It is only 500m travel in gravel road to the junction.
After reaching the beach road, I expect you could follow the track to find the fishing place. The fishing place is a place where you could see the Gayang Bridge from far.
