Angling in and off Malaysia

Home / Tickets / Update* / Blog

Angling in Peninsular Malaysia can be done from coast to coast. However, the best angling experiences are had along the eastern seaboard, with Kuala Rompin being the creme de la creme if it's high-octane action you're after.

Nestled on the south east coast, just north of Mersing, Kuala Rompin is a unique area offering anglers of all experience and skill levels spectacular sailfish action. Rompin sailfish aren't the biggest, but, certainly pound for pound, are amongst the most powerful. The congregate in the Rompin area, because of the masses of baitfish that are found here, as well as the relatively clear warm and mostly calm waters. Other fish that can be had around Rompin are Dorado, Spanish Mackerel and Queenfish.

For the more recreational angling inclined, there's schools of fun Skipjack Tuna around the Tioman area, as well as Trevally and Barracuda. Most of your catches here will be pan-sized or slight larger. Still, as far as angling goes, that's better than a poke in the eye with sharp stick.

By the way, deep-sea angling is quite a popular pastime off Port Dickson also, the other end of Peninsular Malaysia. That said, don't expect to catch anything outsized here.

If it's land-based angling you're after, then you'll be spoilt for choice in Malaysia. Apart from the many rivers that are quite fertile, due to the lack of angling pressure, there are also countess water bodies, large and small, that hold a variety of exciting fish species, including the many estuaries, mangroves and lakes in Malaysia.
