on the same tourney he also caught two huge escolars or otherwise known as oilfish with razor spiny spikes all over its body. one way 40 and the other 20kgs
Matin's big catch at the Sabah International Fishing Tournament. a 4kg puffa fish! quite cute really.. hehe he'd make a mint if he were in japan!
Another newbie.. a hairtail fish.. i like the bright silver colour and its 'parang' like shape.
This year has been a year of interesting fish caught. Some very nice firsts for martin as you can see from these pics. ;-) If you didnt know, he's on the executive committee of the Sabah Anglers' Association where he's been elected as Sabah's Angling Master.. A large group of anglers came from Philippines recently and we had a full course Chinese dinner at Winbell restaurant. Half way through the meal Martin was invited to give the phil anglers some pointers in fishing sabah waters and he did so brilliantly.. hehe Well Done, honey!
