Hari Raya Fishing Trip 2010

Malaysia celebrated Hari Raya on 10th and 11th of September in 2010. Hari Raya is the biggest celebration in Malaysia, and is observed throughout Malaysia, including Sabah. People from all walks of life in Sabah, and from all religions typically spend the first day visiting their Malay friends. Good food, good atmosphere and good conversation.

Since the holidays extended 3 days, this was a perfect time for local anglers charter the 7 Star fishing boat and head out to sea for a bit of fishing. On this charter, Mr Chang came all the way from Ranau and headed out for some deep sea fishing with 5 other anglers. Accompanied by our co-owner, Steven, the 7 Star fishing boat headed out towards the waters around Mengalum Island, northwest of Kota Kinabalu for a 2 Day/1 Night charter. The long weekend was perfect for our local anglers to indulge in their favorite past-time.

Ikan Putih

This fish is known locally as Ikan Putih (White Fish).

Ikan Tikus

This fish is known locally as Ikan Tikus (Mouse Fish).

Overall the catch was a fair one for a 2 Day/1 Night fishing trip. Normally, we would need more traveling time to get out to deeper waters for some deep sea fishing around Sabah. The weather and sea condition was fair for this September trip.
