Fishing Trip to Tanjung Datu

I went for a fishing trip on 6th - 7th July with some friends to Tanjung Datu, off the coast of Sematan, Lundu about 100km from Kuching City. There were 6 of us and we chartered a fishing boat (about 35-40 feet long, 10 feet wide) for about RM650.00 for an overnight fishing trip. It was actually my very first sea-going fishing excursion, so a few days back I got myself a new set of fishing rod and reel. I managed to catch one 1.5 kg fish (not sure what species) and felt well-chuffed about it. Not bad for a sea fishing virgin eh. I've uploaded most of the photos I took in http://www.webshots.com/. To get to the fishing spot at Tanjung Datu, we sailed northwest to the South China Sea, passing by Talang-Talang Island. Talang-Talang Island is Sarawak's primary turtle sanctuary, a protected area and I think it is part of the Tanjung Datu National Park area. Or maybe not, I'm not sure.

I'm hoping to go again early next month, or when weather permits. The seas have been harbouring strong gusts of sporadic wind patches lately, the reports have been saying.

Is that really a parrot fish? I thought the parrot fish look like this one my posting on parrot fish tooth jewelry.

Haha ok I got it wrong. Don't really know what fish that is, but it tasted quite ok. Will check with Kate!
