|Andrew with his first ever Queen Fish, Talang|
Back in June, I receive an email from one of our many fishyology.com readers. Mr. Andrew Griffin, an expatriate working in Malaysia for 6 years, wanted to explore the coast of Port Dickson. Mr. Andrew has been fishing mostly at the east coast, chasing sailfish and black marlin off the coast of Rompin. However, Mr Andrew wanted to explore the west coast and decided to give it a try at Port Dickson.
Since Port Dickson is the new emerging hotspot for jigging and offshore casting, getting a boat was difficult. I only manage to set a date with my trusted Boatman, Apek Kecik on 21 July 2013. It was Ramadhan and jigging under the hot sun does prove to be difficult and challenging.
The date is set, an I meet up with Mr. Andrew at the RnR Seremban. I was quite late because I overslept and tired due to work commitment. We arrive at Teluk Kemang around 8.40am and prepare all the equipment and embark on my first journey with a fishyology.com reader and Mr. Andrew first trip to PD.
|First ever Queen Fish on Jigs|
It all started well with some sign of Queen Fish boiling at the surrounding area of our usual spot. It does not take long before Andrew small pink jigs were taken by a large Queen Fish. Morning session was ok with Andrews jig were taken many hits but soon was off when the fish were nearer to the boat.

Apek our boatmen reposition the boat to drift nearer to the Spotted Mackerel frenzy and my second cast resulted another Mack.

|Mr Andrew Griffin, first time in PD|
Being able to see Spotted Mackerel frenzy in PD was new experience to me. It will become bigger within 2-3 weeks as long as the fish population is still there. Certainly today’s trip was one the best trip in 2013. Sharing knowledge and experience with a veteran avid angler was the most memorable moment for fishyology.com.
