NEW LOGO....WORK IN PROGRESS

I've decided to change the logo's on the t-shirts a bit for the up coming Spratly trip. this time, im gonna include some JAPANESE writing which translates to "SOMETIMES CAN" on the T-shirt to make it look like those SEVENSEAS or FISHERMAN t-shirts to piss the shit outta those fellas. Dont worry, the translation is correct, i got my friends Japanese girlfriend to translate it.

Do post up your comments on which one you think will fit!

Once again, a very big THANK YOU to my wife for all the effort. She is making changes to the fonts used for the Japanese words.

"SOMETIMES CAN" Anglers.

KELONG PARADISE.....NOT

Ok, this was a trip planned by my cousin who first brought me fishing when i was like 9 years old. When he called and asked me to go for this trip, i was really excited as i have never fished from a Kelong before so confirm i said yes la!.

When i went to the website http://www.kelongparadise.com/home/content/view/2/7/ everything looked like it was luxurious Kelong fishing so i thought i'd bring my wife along. Guys, dont be deceived by the website.

When we got there, it was messed up. t could have been a really nice place to have a group Kelong holiday but man the place is SOOOOOOOOOO run down its not funny. No one takes the initiative to take care of the PLACE! Food sucked, everywhere was DIRTY.....no one bothered to clean up the place....it was a nightmare! What made it worse was that not even1 fish was landed...im serious! if i were you, i'd think twice before going to that place for a weekend away and its not cheap..

But on a happier note, i got to spend time with my cousin and a long lost friend of my dad...uncle Richard...real cool guy. Best part of the trip...being able to reminisce of the good old times when i was a kid and how this whole fishing thing came along....akkkaakakka

Here are some pictures from the trip

GEARING UP TO GO!!

THE "GT 20KG CLASS" LIMITED EDITION TITLE

THE CREW

MY 2 BROTHERS...CHRIS & ALAN

WE WERE SUPPOSED TO BUY THE STUFF HERE

AT THE FREAKIN MARKET!


First off, sorry this post took soooooooooo long, its really because I had so much work and it isn’t funny at all. I meant to have this don’t ages ago but the weekend sleep ins were just too tempting. But tonight, I have my usual friend, INSOMNIA to chill with me throughout the night. So here is my report for the trip!!

I would like to thank my dear brother Alan “No Brush Teeth” for having the “GT 20kg Class” logo embedded into the “SOMETMES CAN” Anglers t-shirt for the both of us. Only 2 people had this ranking therefore, only the 2 of us got this t-shirt. This was done to give the others who were on the trip more pressure and of course, continuous bragging rights.

GT & WAHOO...SORRY BOUT THE KILLING...SUCKS BIG TIME

LOOK AT THE SMILE ON HIS FACE...WE WERE ON STANDBY TO CUT LINES!!

THE GEAR, THE GEAR, THE GEAR!

ILLEGAL GAMBLING ON BOARD!!! AHAHAHAHA

"SOMETIMES CAN" ANGLERS


Before the trip we were only worried about 1 person landing a 20kg GT, “Shark King” Johnson. If we were to put up with his bragging if he did land one, I don’t think we can handle it. So we both collectively decided that should he gets a hook up on something which we even suspect is close to a 20kg fist, its either we cut his line deliberately or we throw him into the water.

Its bad enough that Alan had to succumb to his constant bragging of his recent purchase of a Hot’s Fake Lez PE5 -8, so there is no way in hell Alan is going to let him have the opportunity to take away his bragging rights. He has to be stopped at all cost akakkakakakakakakak……

Well back to the story. We left KL for Penang at about 8pm. Khian came over to my place and this time, I brought my youngest brother, Christopher on this trip. It was on my 2009 resolution to bring him fishing. I was DEAD excited for the guy!

ALAN LOVES THE JIGGER & POSEIDON SETUP

D D THE HAILER!!!!

BIG EYE ACTION!...CANT REMEMBER THIS DUDES NAME...BUT HE IS ONE OF US..SOMETIMES CAN!!!

"SOMETIMES CAN" ANGLERS....HARD @ WORK!

JOHNSON AND HIS WELL DESERVED WAHOO....ON JIG! BEAT THAT BITCH!


Stayed a night at the NORTHAM Penang, you know la we all, comfort is a MUST, travel also must be in style a bit la. A good nights sleep then we’re ready for TUKUN 3!

The next morning, met up with the rest of the crew. This was when me and Alan proudly showed off the “GT 20kg Class” logo’s on our t-shirts! It was REALLY fun to brag, I love it!

Top on the list before we head off, was to buy EXTRA food and we had Alan making sure we do not forget that. BIG mistake. We bought vegetables, but NO extra food akakakakakakkakaka

DD & BARRACUDA...I LOVE THIS NGAU JUK POSE...ITS DAMN FUNNY!

SHOUT SERIOUSLY ROXX!...THANK YOU DARREN!

NIAMAKAHAI AR...MANA IKAN! TIU NIA SENGS!

ALAN...LOVE THE SET UP....LONG TIME!

CHRIS...WITH GOT KNOWS WHAT IKAN


At 9 sharp, we were off to Tukun. I was too excited about the trip there, could hardly catch a nap, luckily had some HAPPY friends that put me straight to la la land. It was a long 6 hour journey on board GT Challenger with the legendary Capt “Niamakahai Ar” Ah Siah who spat on his hand and rubbed it on my head when he saw me. Guess it was supposed to bring me luck….

Once we arrived, everyone began to jig. As I slowly woke up from my nap, picked up my Fake Lez and began to jig, I could see EVERYONE was serious into the game. Being the GT King, I thought to myself, I cannot lose face, I have to land at least 1 GT to prove a point. And then, it happened, within 30 minutes into the jigging exercise, I landed the 1st GT of the trip. This is why I am the G.T king and Tukun is my playground. After that, pure silence from everyone and LOADS and LOADS of bragging from me, the G.T King.

THIS IS WHY I AM THE MAFAKKIN GT KING!

"SHARK KING" JOHNSON...THE MOST HARD WORKING ANGLER

CHRIS FIGHTING THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY!!

"JIGGING MASTER" KHIAN WITH I DNT KNOW WHAT FISH BUT I THINK THIS PICTURE ROXX BIG TIME!


Everyone was so motivated at that time and the most hard-working guy of the trip, “Shark King” Johnson was trying everything from drifting to bottom to jigging. Then suddenly, there was a loud scream on Johnson’s reel. Me and Alan was DAMN worried. Alan already had his cigarette on standby to burn off his line. It was a good 10 minute fight before we saw a long shape appear. What a sigh of relief for the both of us. From the feeling of being threatened, it quickly turned into screams of JOY for our fellow “SOMETIMES CAN”angler. It was a good sized Wahoo! We reckon that it was about 7-8kgs. Not bad for a Wahoo on jig!

Alan was looking at the action from Johnson’s Fake Lez and was cursing why issit that he didn’t get that rod. Guys, Hot’s Fake Lez……..FUCKING ROXXX big time mafakka!

Soon, it was night time and there were only a few big-eyes landed. My poor brother who was jigging for long hours had a few hook-ups but didn’t manage to land anything.

THE G.T KING! HAHAHHAHAAHAH

FAKE LEZ....JUST LOOK AT THE ACTION!

YEAH! TIDE LEZ ROXXXXXXXXX BIG TIME BABY!


The next day, the fishing was worse, water was choppy and there were no bites until night time. My brother was jigging with my Poseidon + Ocea Jigger NR setup. After a while, he was tired then Alan picked it up. Being a guy who loves using multiplier reels, he fell deeply in love with the set up. He hogged the set up the whole night. Proving once again he is the master of that style of jigging, he instantly hooked up on something when he got the rod from my brother. After a few rounds he passed the fight to my brother seeing that he hasn’t caught anything throughout the trip. Alan is a TRUE brother of mine and I thought that act of his was just honorable.




Khian managed to land a fish which I believe is a member of the GT family. When he had the hook up, me and Alan were not worried at all as if he were to land a 20kg GT, we will be more than happy to celebrate for him as he aint the bragging type. “Jigging Master” Khian is a well modest guy so we weren’t too worried about the THRASH talking part akakakakakkaka.

To end the night, I was rewarded with another…yes GT!!! By popping. It was my Hot’s Tide Lez set up. It ROCKED big time! Thank you TUKUN!

AND NOT FORGETTING....THE "NGAU JUK" POSE AKAKAKAKKAKAK I JUS LOVE MAKIN A MOCKERY OUTTA THIS POSE!


Overall, the trip was really fun, I really enjoyed the trip. There isn’t one trip to TUKUN which I feel was wasted. Just being there was magical. Getting to test my new toys on this trip was well worth it….every single penny! Poseidon, Blue Rose & Hot’s rods ROCKS MY FREAKIN WORLD!

Although the fishing was not too good, I had a rocking time and if any of you readers are planning a Tukun trip on board Capt “Niamakahai Ar” Ah Siah, im game….provided if I had the time. Well not all trips out are great, that is the reason we call ourselves “SOMETIMES CAN” Angler, coz not always also can.

NEXT ...IM GONNA BEEF UP ON MY POPPING....POSE DAMN JALAN RIGHT AKAKAKAKKAKAKAKA


Till the next trip….SPRATLY HERE WE COME!
