PMPP Family Fishing Competition Saturday 24th September 2005

OK It's right around the corner on Saturday afternoon 24th September 2005. The aim is to have a fun family outing and a fantastic angling adventure. If you've been following the PMPP website, you'll know that we have discovered a fantastic place to fish for Siakap in Sungai Petani. We have arranged with the gracious owner to have our family competition day there.
The last time I went there, I had over 50 hook ups but only landed about 30 Siakaps. Wow it was one of the best fishing experiences I've ever had. It will be strictly Catch & Release to promote the sport of fishing and to educate our next generation of anglers. Bring your family as it's almost 100% that they will get enough fishing action to last them a year!
An Artificial Barbless lure will be provided for you, it's the one we found most effective in for the Siakap here. If you lose it, additional ones can be bought on site.Please bring light tackle, preferably 6-12lb line on an ultralight rig to maximise the fun.
In addition, a scorecard system will be used in which the number of fish caught and released will be recorded and signed by the nearest person fishing. This is to reduce the stress on the fishes as weighing them will most likely kill them.
So sign up quickly, there are only 50 places and this special pond is not open to public, but it is open for the PMPP Family Fishing Competition!

    Cheap Fishing Toolbox at Tesco this week

    Well it was already cheap at $4.90, but at $2.90 it's a steal. I bought one for myself and it's quite a sturdy box, very handy for those essentials. I think the sale should be on for this week.

    Catch & Release : The Future

    I bet you can still remember the biggest fish that got away...but can you remember the last fish you caught and ate? As true fishermen, the thrill is not the trophy, but the hunt and epic fight. In order to safeguard this sport for the future generations, it is important to instill the principle of "Catch & Release" as opposed to just being "Meat Hunter". Here are some guidelines from the Catch & Release Foundation.

    These guidelines are generic but remembering them will give all species of fish a greater chance of survival. A fish is too valuable to be caught and enjoyed only once, be responsible.

    Use barbless hooks or circle hooks (especially when bait fishing), or pinch the barb flat with pliers. If you use a net, use one made of cotton mesh or rubber. It is less harmful to fish scales, gills and eyes. Only net your fish if it is the only way to control it.

    Wet your hands when handling fish. Dry hands and gloves will remove its protective mucous (slime) coating and scales. These protective layers help prevent infection by waterborne disease. Do not beach a fish or let it flop around the deck of the boat.

    Try not to remove the fish from the water. If you must, be quick and gentle, do not squeeze the fish. Do not hold the fish near the gills or eyes (Pike, Muskie, Snook, etc.) Needle nose pliers, hemostats, de-hookers etc., will speed up the removal of a deep set hook.

    To revive the fish, hold it under the belly and by the tail, keep it in an upright position underwater, do not move the fish back and forth** (this is also a good time to get a measurement and take a photo). If you are fishing in a river or stream, hold the fish facing the current. Be patient and give the fish as much time as it needs to recover and swim away on its own.

    Fishing for Milkfish at Pulau Betong

    Over the weekend some of the PMPP committee went up to Pulau Betong (Air Itam).It's at the prawn farm and the owner graciously let us fish there. There are a lot of milkfish and occasional Tarpons in the brackish water. The milkfish like bread and also take small lures and even floating poppers.

    Online Tide Charts

    I have just noted a very good online tide chart from the Marine Meteorological Forecast website. It has weather and tide charts for the whole of Malaysia and is quite accurate and concise. Definitely a useful tool for the online Fishing Kaki!
