Luring at Sungei Api Api

Post by venomrat » Fri Sep 14, 2012 5:43 pm

Hi,

Was thinking of trying luring at Sungei Api Api.
What are my chances of landing a fish there?
Any good location to try?
Any particular lure to use?
Or I shouldn't waste my time? :-)
Your input is much appreciated.

Hi venomrat, welcome to HLF. I've not fished at Sungei api api before, barramundis, mangrove jacks, barracudas and groupers are probably your best bet on artificial lures in that river. It's probably a nice place to chill and wet your lines, don't get your expectations too high. ;)

Thanks for the replies guys. :)

Took a quick tour of the river this morning.

There were a few people fishing there but not much action.

However I was only there for 15 minutes.

Need to find a day off to check it out.

Thanks for posting your experience.
Could you let me know what type of lure you were using?

apologies, most time i hear people landing with live baits instead of lure.
