Don’t get me wrong, there is no winter in Rompin. It’s our guests from freezing cold Sweden that’s spending their winter here.
According to Swedes, Linus and Sara, it is currently -5°C back home in northern Sweden.
Meanwhile, it is one of the hottest time of the year now in Malaysia.
March signals the start of a new fishing season in Kuala Rompin. It appears we are the earliest charter to kick-off sailfish fishing at this time, at least for 2016.
Traditionally, local and neighbouring fishermen will converge in Kuala Rompin for bottom fishing for target species such as grouper, diamond trevally, golden trevally, and such.
Pelagic and Bottom Fish
This time of the year can also see many narrow barred spanish mackerel which are a favorite target with jigs and plugs. Last week was no exception as there was a frenzy and plenty of our sailfish rigs got bitten off by this member of the high-speed razor gang.
Rompin in March sees sailfish more scattered in a large area. Although available, they are much harder to locate.
Linus and Sara are two amazing people. They work at a centre for people with special needs such as those with autism, OCD and such.
They are continuing their winter holiday diving and exploring tropical Asia. I wish this nice couple a wonderful holiday.
