Effective Lure for Siakap

We just had an outing to a fishing pond with lots of Siakap in it with sizes ranging from 600gm to a kilo. Very good fight on ultralight line. This lure in particular was super effective resulting in 50 hook ups and 30 landed and released. It's basically a weighted jig head with a soft plastic octopus on a barbless hook. Cast it and allow it to sink to the bottom, then retrieve it at a medium speed...wham!

Check the Tide Charts Online

Any sea fisherman needs to know the ensure a good catch. Since most of us are online nowadays, you can check the tides anywhere in Malaysia or around the world through your handphone, notebook or computer. Mobilegeographics provides this very useful service and I find it invaluable. The links are also permanently on the right hand side of this website for quick reference. Enjoy!

  • Malaysian Tide Charts
  • Largest Mekong River Catfish

    Recently the largest freshwater fish was caught in Thailang. A whopping 293kg was caught in a fishing net...would have given a good fight though!

    Berkley has a nicely categorised fishing tips site that is worth a visit. Incidentally the picture is an advert from Shimano...but the tip could out for great white sharks while trolling for fish!
