Hi

there is a guy who writes in the lcoal paper about fishing. Below is an article about one of his trips to Kuala Sepetang (about 2 hours south of Penang near Taiping).

You may be able to email him for some tips.

There is a fair bit of rock fishing that is done along the Tanjung Bungah Batu Ferringhi stretch. Beach fishing is also common on the island.

Lake fishing is on the mainland. If you want a real trip try Lake Kenyir where you can try your luck fishing for the giant snakefish.

Here is a site that talks to Malaysian fishing generally

Just remember that the weather is hot, the sun strong and storms come from nowhere !!

Enjoy

Found what I was looking for about Lake Kenyir..... namely the home of the near mythical giant Kenyir Monster, the largest freshwater fish in the world:

Kinda late reply. Anyway, for those who would like ta have a sneak peek on Penang fishing, can go to http://goldenson-penang.blogspot.com/ . The blog contents mostly is in Malay language.

To answer on the deepsea fishing, the range is between US$100/day trip to US$1000+. The are many places in Penang which still can land you up good catch with nice panorama view. I'm not sure if there is any specific guides for beach fishing but you can always asked those in fishing forums like kakipancing.net, etc.
