Nanyang Technological University Anglers Club (NTUAC) Kelong Getaway

By: admin, October 16, 2013 | none

Sponsored by SureCatch and organised by NTU Anglers Club, the Kelong Trip 2013 occurred on the 28th and 29th of September 2013. The event was a two day and one night event held at Ah Fatt Kelong which is situated close in Pulau Sibu, Malaysia. A total of 30 participants joined us for the Kelong trip.

This motive of this trip was to promote a healthy work life balance for participants and to experience the traditional “fishing village” Kelong lifestyle; experience fishing in Kelong  bumpy bump boat ride from Tanjung Leman jetty to Ah Fatt Kelong, and also bridging new friendship..

The goodie bags were presented to our participants at the kelong itself. Each participant was also photographed while receiving the goodie bag. This trip was proudly sponsored by SureCatch, HOOKED, NTUSU and Mr Bean. SureCatch sponsored items – SureCatch UT range of “sabiki” and SureCatch squid jigs, were included in the goodie bag package. These are essential items for the 2 day activity and the usefulness of the sponsorship items were well received by the crowd. SureCatch event banner was also proudly displayed throughout the event.

Most of the anglers reflected that the Surecatch UT range of sabiki rigs were the best freebie in the goodie bag and were eager to experiment its usability. Most commented that the model was easy to use.

Night fishing commenced after dinner. The SureCatch squid jig proved its effectiveness with its luminous body as participants hooked up and landed a total of 5 squids. However due to the bad weather condition of the night, the sotong jigging competition was cancelled. As the night went by, more fishes were caught by the participants.

In conjunction to this year’s fishing trip, we also help two competitions to further encourage fishing lifestyle within the community. Sure catch’s sponsored reel was proudly presented to the winner of the heaviest caught fish in this event while the sponsored Mustad Shock leader line were awarded to a proud winner who made the largest amount of catches within the event.
