Huge Numbers & Unrivalled Sailfish Action
Kuala Rompin is a unique fishery where catch and release is enforced by local law.All sailfish have to be released at Rompin, nurturing a thriving fishery and making it an attractive destination to avid sports anglers. Kuala Rompin offers anglers an affordable international sportfishing adventure, with a wonderful Malaysian flavour.
Anglers can experience multiple shots at fish each day here as huge numbers of sails return each season to feed up on masses of baitfish. The sailfish here are very aggressive and allow anglers the opportunity to target them using a variety of techniques including live baiting, skip baiting, casting surface lures and salt water fly. Live baits are used with optimal effect as hungry sails pounce on them as they are slow-trolled or drifted from the boat. For anglers, individual sailfish average around 30 – 35kg in size and provide spectacular action on medium tackle.
World Class Light Tackle Sailfish
Each day you will you venture into some of the most prolific and productive sailfish grounds found in Asia Pacific.The fishing season begins in May and continues until the monsoon which begins mid November, chances are you’ll be fishing well offshore in very calm warm waters, making the trip more enjoyable and easy. Sailfish follow the bait fish and once bait is located the sails (and birds) are never to far behind.
Some days the number of sailfish you see on the surface is incredible, but the bite often comes from the fish you don’t see well below the surface. Casting lures, drifting baits, missing strikes and pulling hooks is all part of the fun and experience, Rompin is a destination with plenty of opportunities to refine your angling skills. Other species found include spanish mackeral, small black marlin, mahi mahi, cobia and big squid (egi).
“At Rompin you’re hands on from start to finish.. from catching the bait, hooking the sailfish to playing it all the way to the boat. It’s brilliant light tackle fun and what it’s all about”
