Rompin Sail Fishing ~ Oct 2009

Yes ... this is the long awaited photo, A Sail Fish from Rompin ! :yay:

Our virgin trip to Rompin ...
Went in 2009 but the trip CRs got to wait till 2010 to be posted ... :o
It's better late than never. lol !

Roped in the help of Macko as chief organizer.
All I wanted was to enjoy the Sailing fun and nothing else, and we did.
It was so exciting and memorable trip shared with woofie and oinky.
With another team in boat two formed by Eric, Vidic, Joseph and Macko trolling the Tenggirri !

For the happy four in boat one piloted by Ah Liang ...
It was exciting fun right from the morning on day one.
Mood was high and we took turns to have fun pulling in big sails one after another.
It seems so easy ... hook bait, cast ... wait a little ... tio liao ... chut suah ...Zzzzzttttttttt !!!!! :thumbsup:

All four being first timer in Rompin for the Sails ... we were full of excitement when the first Sail hit off for the first run.
Sailing out of water send us go gaga ...
And it was a double hookups with the ladies having the privilege to play the first sail.

The power of Sail Fish ... strong, fast and the moment they leaped out of water ... simply beautiful !

I was so excited, totally submerged in the play with my first Sail.
Lost in my own world not remembering what was happening besides me ...
Suddenly, a sweet voice woke me up " ... aunty 没有线了!"
Woofie was lost too ... in the sound of music from her stella ...
Listening to the beautiful sound of ting ting ting ...
She forgotten to check drag and allowed the Sails to take her lines out.
When she finally came to her senses and shouted for help ....
Simon's stepped in and assisted her in time and later passing the fight over to Oinky.
Both Sails landed successfully. :D

We managed to have a double Sails photo on first try.
It was such a beautiful moment ... I will cherish for a long long time. :yay:

Simon was the lucky one with the landing of the biggest Sails.
Being the more experience of all four ... he had fun his way.
Allowing the Sails to Sail ~ :lol:
Picked up some tippy from Ah Laing and soon he was tying his own rigs and balloon.
We had some squid fun too.
It was easy and effortless to catch squid in Rompin. haha ...

It was Sailing fun and nothing else for us on Day One ! :nod:

Day one has given us high expectation and hopes for more Sail fishing fun on day two.
It was so easy for a hookups and Sails fish in abundance.
They were sighted almost everywhere ... you seriously don't need to find them. :grin:

But we have a mission to be accomplished on day no. 2.
Woofie has yet to get a personal photo with a Sail. ::x:

We started the day trolling for tenggirri seeing the good result of team two on day one.
And thinking we can easily hit some more Sail in the later afternoon.
It was a drastic difference from day one.
We wasted time trolling for tenggirri at speed of 20 knots ! 0.o
It was a total waste of time and effort.

Realising the boatman is not very experience at trolling ...
We switched over to Sail Fishing.
It was a long long wait for the first Sail on day two.
With some several other boatman passing by and calling each other to check for sighting of the Sails.
They were missing in action ... gone where !? 0.o

Finally ... the first Sail came along towards noon time.
Woofie ready to go on show ... nervous and excited as all eyes were on her.
It was a hookup and then the Sail no gib her face, spat on her ! oops ....

Then came a 2nd chance ...
And that saw the movie ... one way ticket in Rompin ! :shh:
Clearing a spool of brand new lines on a Stella 5000 reel.
Wonders if the 300 yards of lines still sailing in the sea of Rompin. :lol:
It was another moment she indulged in the sound of music ~ :whistle:
Zzzt zzzttt ztttt ztttt .... 完了完了...没有线了!
Simon's thumbing on the reel did not managed to stopped the Sail.
But he prevented woofie from falling backwards with his hand acting as support ...
breaking the fall when the moment line detached from spool ! lol !

Alright alright ... no more laughs ... she did it on 3rd tries. :nod:
Landed a beautiful Sail all by herself.
Set hook ... fight and picture time .... it's mission accomplished !

Day two also saw the power of a "humongous" Sail's power.
A suspected huge Sail got away from Simon.
Hmm ... those landed were already huge ... can you imagine the "BIG" one ?
Will be back for it ! :mischieve:

Thanks to Eric for the beautiful pics.
Pictures speaks a thousand words ...
we were updated with the day's happening on the other boat
by reviewing pics from the camera screen each day.
Exciting tales and stories were exchanged over dinner ...
We forgotten all about the heat, fatigue and sleepiness ... :lol:

Here's the winning photos from Team two. :thumbsup:
