EASTCAPADE!

East Malaysia. A place which keeps beckoning. The relaxed ambience, the great food and some enthusiastic fisho friends combine to make trips like this an excellent getaway. The fishing though, isn't a given, and as always hard work and perseverence is needed, not to mention the help of the weather gods as we would discover...
 
 
Rods by Dobyns, Majorcraft & Megabass rigged for the day on the water...

Spanking new DUO Realis Crank all set for action. An angry Mangrove Jack would take one home as a souvenir shortly after...

The battle scars left on the new DUO Realis Jerkbait 100SP tell the tale of a Mangrove Jack that got away. Another 100SP would be lost completely as the Jack found home and busted off...

After bruised egos courtesy of the mighty Jacks we went after fish we could bully, like this Archerfish on the Realis Jerkbait...

Was to be a slow and frustrating day on the river until we found a snag with some residents. First in the boat was a hungry Jack which didn't think twice about hitting the DUO Deep Feat diver...

It was joined almost immediately by another mate on another DUO Deep Feat, to make it a great photo op...

Fish released and another cast in found another taker. The bigger ones were out to play and they loved the Deep Feat too, this one taking it deep...

The Jacks were lining up to get in the boat. Another DUO Deep Feat victim. This lure has produced the goods time and again in this river and is a must have for many...

Another tandem of hungry Mangrove Jacks, it was a visual feast as we witnessed them racing out of the snag to belt our lures. DUO Deep Feats at work again...

No complains as the procession continued with the Deep Feat working its magic. The fish were getting bigger too!

It was only after the faster Jacks had been cleared from the snag did slower fish like the Barra get a chance at the lures. This one liked the hot Evergreen Super Predator crank...

Meanwhile the Deep Feat keeps the Jacks thirsty for more...

Yet another, small but still plenty of fun on the DUO Deep Feat...

A switch to the deeper Zipbaits B-Switcher crank revealed more Barramundi holding deeper...

The slinky Jackall Squad Shad is a killer when twitched and worked when the fish were well and truly spooked by our onslaught...

Going deep with an IMA Melty Nymph rubber sunk down paid dividends with this Fingermark Bream...

One last Barra on the Jackall Squad Shad before the bite shut down and we called it a day. And quite a day it was...

Next day we boarded a boat that would take us offshore to some great fishing but it was not to be. All we had to show for a few hours jigging were some Spanish Mackeral like this one on the Evergreen Caprice jig. The wind had picked up almost as we arrived at the spot and wouldn't let up till day break. A call was then made to cut the trip short and trek back to shore, a decision supported by all onboard...


A pesky Remora on the Caprice jig. Pretty much summed up the sub-par trip...
