Fishing trips from the Tanjung Rhu

I am staying at the Tanjung Rhu in August and my boyfriend is really keen to go on a fishing trip - is something they do at the hotel or would we need to got o the main town or jetty/Pier?

Thanks

They will probably offer to arrange something at the resort, but you'd be best to go into Kuah and see whats on offer. Lots of companies do fishing trips.

Don't forget, if you book it through the resort you'll pay premium prices for any tours/excorsions including a fishing trip.

Have a look at www.langkawi-online.com, you can probably book up before you leave the UK or at least get an idea of the prices.

Hope this helps.

Hi Robelyn15

We are planning to hire a car to go to Khua so we will arrange this while we are there.

Thanks for you help

Rachel,

Just adding this as another suggestion. Your boyfriend can buy a complete beach casting kit in Kuah for around 40/50 GBP, it will be a 30 pound rod, with a japanese reel. Plus all the line, hooks, etc.

You can walk out of the shop and all you need to do is buy some bait. Off you go, cast at Tanjung Rhu every morning and ask the cook/chef to cook your catch for lunch, at the resort.

You'll need to do a boat trip if he wants baraccuda !

That sounds great, that would be superb to get the fish cooked by the chefs, lets hope he gets lucky ;-)

Rachel,

If your boyfriend decides to buy the kit don't forget to ask for a discount. Should be 20/50% of the marked price.

The best supplier is almost next door to a cafe/bar called the Pier, its in Kuah. They will even rig the fishing rod for you. Go to the wet market for the bait, small fish and prawn are very good.

If you like specific herbs on your fish bring a jar with you and give it to the chef. You'll love it. So freeeessssshhhhh ! .................
