Malaysia, Your Fishing or Angling Paradise - The Seas

DEEP SEA FISHING / SALT WATER FISHING

 

"I never expected so many species in one place. Good fishing.  Malaysia is now on the world angling map."

IGFA World Champion 1989,

Four times individual European Champion

Malaysia, Your Fishing or Angling Paradise - The Seas

 

The deep nutrient rich waters of the Spratlys offer a virtual fishing paradise with an unparalleled variety of species.  This exquisite deepwater area, with coral atolls rising from depths of 1,000 - 2,000m, is Malaysia's premier saltwater game fishing destination.  Strictly controlled with regard to boats and numbers of anglers, and no commercial activity whatsoever, the Spratlys provide a top world-class destination and wide spectrum of species.

 

Malaysia, Your Fishing or Angling Paradise - The Seas

Where expensive lure are crushed, super braids get out spooled

and good rods may just snap.

 

The Rolex-IGFA Labuan International Offshore Qualifying Event, held annually, is now part of the International Angling Circuit, culminating in the world championship each year.  The Myriad islands offshore from Rompin are playgrounds of the Pacific Sailfish.  These shallow waters produce specimen fish on fly, troll and bait.  Up to 20 or more fish have been taken, by a single angler, in one day, with specimens reaching to over 4 60kg.

 
 

Malaysia, Your Fishing or Angling Paradise - The Seas

Emerald islands, clear sparkling seas and world-class game fishing.

 

This may be the only place in the world where Sailfish from such massive congregations and can be dubbed the world's Sailfish capital.  The Malaysian Angling Association, in conjunction with the Billfish Foundation, Rod & Line Magazine and Mc Donald's Malaysia, has developed its own tag and release programme for Billfish. Uninhabited rocky islands with steep drop offs provide excellent trolling and live/dead bait fishing opportunities. Popping along atoll drop offs often produces good sized Giant Trevally. Situated at the epicentre of coral diversity, Malaysia's deep reefs produce oversized specimens of Groupers, Snappers, Coral Trout and other bottom dwellers.   Accommodation on remote beautiful islands can be basic but adds to the spirit of adventure that encompasses the majority of angling in Malaysia. The island of Tioman, the setting of the 1960's film 'South Pacific', is located close to the Peninsula's Black Marlin Territory. Although rarely exceeding 100kg in this area, they can be great fun on lighter tackle. Larger specimens are occasionally recorded.

 

" lost lots of expensive lures, broke a favourite rod, damaged two reels and really enjoyed myself, Fishing, Food and Fun. I will be back again with more groups. "
