Shutter & Exposure

Ok. Yes, this picture taken during the UK Fun Fair in Bandar Indah Sandakan. And yes, this is not a fishing trip photo or anything regarding fishing but it's one of my interest too. This photo is about me testing slow shutter speed & exposure for the first time. Any comments are welcome.

Recently went to Kota Kinabalu with my family. I captured these photo's using only my Snapshot Handphone Sony Ericson. I like the view here. On the right side is the port vessel for Kota kinabalu region. I'm not sure what's the name of the island further front. Local people of KK should know i believe. there is people fishing from the shore just next to the tree. I estimate it is a 10Ft Rod he is using. Mayb someday i should try out popping here one day with my friends.

Apollo Sure Can...

2 hours taken for this trip to arrived to Taganak due to a bit higher wave than normal eventhough the speedboat that we hired have a powerfull 400hp engine. Once arrived at the 1st spot, result are not encouraging. One of our japanese new friend so keen on using jig's. He manage to land few fish by this method. My most memorable catches are Coral Grouper (2.8kg) & a Red Snapper (1.8kg).....by using only... Apollo method.
It is not such a rare catch for this kind of fish in my hometown, Sandakan. But a bit hard to find.

Quantity Or Quality ?

It has been four months since my last fishing trips. This time really went to kretam area on deepavali day 17th october 2009. Further out i think but the speedboat we hired are using 400HP engine thus, journey does not consume so much time. One thing i'm worried is the rain but it didnt happen. well, enjoy my photo's. Oh yes..this trip were participate by Jepp, Bob, Don, Bakri, Rodney,Jason,Mak & myself. No one going home empty handed for this trip but then some enjoying the quality of fish and some are targeting for quantity....


In yacht club jetty waiting to depart,Mr. Mak in blue pants was the earliest to arrived. Me with "7 Star Fish Grouper (costing RM18 to RM25.00 per KG in market price"..Not bad huh..!!

Left photo is a 2kg + Lepeh, a good size Ketambak. Photo below, all penat sudah...baru half time tu....

my first to kretam? ( bakungan kecil & besar ?)



video

Went to (area bakungan kecil & besar) for the first time on 05th july 2009. 7 of us all. Old & new friends. It is one of the popular fishing area in Sandakan. Journey started at around 8.20am from Sandakan yacht club. There about 6 or 7 boats going out for fishing.

All of us done bottom fishing either using apollo or "tanduk". I caught few "Hung Kai" & other species. Other friends are quite lucky caught a good good size mangrove jack. One of the best fight is a 30minutes never surrender stingray. I'm glad this is a good trip by knowing new friends & testing out a new spot [new for me :)]. Happy angling..
