The redfish appears to have wised-up and are not that easy to fool anymore, although a couple of fish still fell for the flies.
Meanwhile, at the new catch and release only pond which charges RM20 for each of the first two hours and RM10 for subsequent hours, the bite is hot.
Update 2016: the charges are now basically RM50 for a 3-hour session and RM10 for subsequent hours.
There are mangrove jacks and redfish in one pond – giant trevally, golden snappers and groupers in the other. If you know what you are doing here, you quickly figure out a pattern and start getting regular hits.
Update 2016: Currently there are 4 ponds for sport fishing (catch & release). Although you can buy your catch at market price if you wish.
The rightmost pond is stocked with redfish and GT.
The next pond from right – groupers
Third and fourth pond from right – barramundi
Location of Jugra Saltwater Pond
I think Google’s street view is really cool. The image above shows the pond – partly under construction.
