Pulau Dayang & Pulau Aur Offshore Fishing CR

Post by KURAUKING » Tue Nov 04, 2008 2:31 am

This is my Pulau Dayang CR. A lovely island located near Pulau Aur, a divers paradise. It's one of the furthest island, bout 70km from mainland Malaysia via Mersing, Johor. One can only but wonder if the Aur islands have been reserved specifically for the elite with a lot of money to spend. However, this really shouldn't deter the traveller in a quest for the perfect island to explore, to laze about or to indulge in the culture and hospitality of the local fishermen and their families. Once you're there, you'd know that all that hassle was worth every penny. The relief is that once the weekend crowd has disappeared, you will discover the true beauty of the islands and its waters......:D
Image




A few of us spent 3days/2nites at Pulau Dayang, one of the very popular dive site among Singaporean......:D
Image


Upon reaching Mersing(from Port Klang) and after a brief breakfast, we depart from Mersing Jetty to Pulau Dayang at about 9am in the morning......:D
Image


Pulau Dayang and Pulau Aur has always been a stopover point for fishermen. With a supply of frsh water and plenty of fish in the waters, a few later moved their families to the island.....:D
Image


One of our deckhand is awaiting our arrival at the Pulau Dayang Jetty.....:D
Image


If you have the time, you could hop on the weekend dive boats to the islands, stay a week and then hop back onto the next batch of boats heading to the mainland the weekend after......:D
Image


Some of our 'weapons'......:D
Image


Once you're there, you'd know that all that hassle was worth every penny. The relief is that once the weekend crowd has disappeared, you will discover the true beauty of the islands and its waters.....:D
Image


Aur was never the peaceful island as we see now. The deep dark secrets of the wild days are only beginning to unravel within the historic data collected from salvaged treasures hoisted from sunken Chinese junks, sailboats and old merchants ships found shattered in its watery grave.......:D
Image


They are rumoured to contain treasures and wrecks beyond our imagination. Perhaps they should left in peace in these graves together with their masters from a long forgotten era of great sea voyages.....:D
Image


On our first day, upon reaching Pulau Dayang, we stop by a few 'unjam' for warm up.....:P
Image


This trip, my 'bangla' aka elec reel not very productive but my custom jigging rod was overwhelm by attacks of Pulau Dayang monsters.....:D
Image


Banny, my fishing buddy was the first to hook up a fish.....:D
Image


It was a shark....hahaa........:P
Image


Bout 4-5 kgs i would say.....:D
Image


Then, Shtan caught the second fish, it was a Kerisi......:D
Image


Then a grouper.....:D
Image


Then a Ikan Timah....:D
Image


Then we called it a day and head back to our chalet at Pulau Dayang......:D
Image

Took our bath and dinner was ready......:D
Image


We had sambal fish, asam pedas style....:D
Image


Steam fish, teochew style.....:D
Image


And a few more dishes which we wash down with a few cans of beers.....:D
Image


We saw some notes on our chalet wall, wonder if any of those notes is yours.....:D
Image


The next morning, at about 6.30am in the morning, we are ready for the battle and head to the jetty where our boat is waiting oredi.....:D
Image


Manage to do a trademark post before alighting the boat, special to all my fans out there.....hahaa........:P
Image



On this second day, we are heading to one of the furthest 'unjam' where Marlin dances and manta rays do somersault underwater.....:P
Image

Upon reaching the 'unjam', we saw a school of Dorados playing around. No waiting liaw, we cast, we cast and STRIKKKEEEE~!!!!!
Image


Once hooked on, they jump like mad~!!!
Image

The Dorado bull powere and stamina is awesome~!!!
Image

Gaff~!!! Gafff~!!! GaaFFFFFFFF~!!!!!! We shouted at the boatman, hook ups after hook ups till the boatman takbleyyy tahan.....hahaa.......:D
Image

Image


How many dorados we caught that day~??? Donno, we was to busy striking one after another till lost count.....hehee.......:P
Image


I think got bout 50 kua......:D
Image


All dorado bull sizes bout this.....:D
Image


The boatman was kind enuff to 'bleed' the dorados for us. Dorados is a good eating fish too.....:D
Image


The whole day we was fighting dorados till no time to fish other fish, it was fun.....hehee.......:D
Image


Then we head back to our Chalet at Pulau Dayang and call it a day, pheeewww i must be getting old, back ache man~!!!!:D
Image


On the third day, nothing much happen except for shark frenzy. We caught shark after shark......:D
Image

Mr KK went play with Sharky ? :lol:

I miss the Mersing Jetty ... it's so beautiful ... good enough to blow up to wall paper size.

I have not been to Pulau Dayang before ... but you have just took us there for a walk. ;)
Thanks for sharing these magnificent scenery photos.
The catches enough to send the phones ringing for an arrangement to the island.

Malaysia is blessed with many small islands ... little paradise where you get to enjoy
sandy beaches ... cool breeze ... blue waters ...
Islands you can relax and get away from the hustle n bustle of city lifestyle. :yay:
