Just got back from my first Inshore fishing trip with two of my best buddies (picture below).
We had a fantastic time caught a few fish and enjoyed every minute of it.
Hope you enjoy reading my first report!
Sights from Sasoon-Dock
Map of our Journey (Start to Finish)
Destination & Log
0. Departed from Sasoon-Dock
1. First stop 2.5 NMI from Dock (Fished for 30 min) Very calm
2. Second Stop 5 NMI from Dock (Fished for 60 min) Semi rough
3. Third stop 6 NMI from Dock (Fished for 10 min) rough
According to the Skipper (captain) this was the ideal location for bigger fish, unfortunately we didn't stay for long, 10 min to be precise. The sea was quite rough swaying the boat vigorously from side to side resulting in one of my friends getting sick, so we decided to head back to shallower and calmer waters.
4. Moved past point 4
5. Last stop, fish were scarse (Fished for 120 min) Very Calm
6. Returned back to Sasoon-Dock

My Chum Bag Recipe (Fish attractant)

Cat food cubes (pedigree)
Dump all the ingredients into a bucket mix and churn for 3 min.
Leave to rot in the sun for 3 to 4 days before fishing (ps: the whole building will complain)
Unfortunately all that gear didn't do justice to the fish we caught, alas it was a slow day anyway back to the water ~
First Fish of the Day (^^)
2nd Fish Edit: Fingermark
3rd Fish Edit: Fingermark
4th Fish Edit: Grouper
5th Fish (crab)
6th Fish Edit: Grouper
8th Fish (eel)
The Eel had to be killed as it tangled itself up with the line and was getting impossible to remove.
Heres a video of the Eel (graphic)
If some you could be kind enough to name the fish species local/english that would be really helpful. Edit: Thanks for the help Santosh!!
Well that pretty much concludes my trip!
Thanks for reading
