Fishing trips other than Monkey Beach?


I'm currently in Batu Feringgi and kind of desperately looking for half day or full day fishing trips for myself & my 9yr old son. We've been to several travel agencies on the main street here but all they have to offer is a 4hr trip to Monkey Beach - which is not something we want since this trip is really not about fishing at all. We've been told to ask the local fishermen if they could take us fishing. I'd like to know if anyone has done this and could share his/her experiences? Or are there other possibilities to go out to the sea (angling by the coast, bottom fishing etc.)? Thanks.

Penang is a place where fishing is a way of earning a living, so it's not done for pleasure. Blue Whale cruises who operate out of Straits Quay run fishing trips, but for a minimum of 10 people. It might be worth contacting them in case they have other people wanting to go fishing but haven't yet got a viable number. http://www.bluewhalecruises.info/
