Bluesails Sportfishing is based in Singapore with charters operating out from K.Rompin, Malaysia. The Billfishing season in Kuala Rompin starts in mid-March & runs through mid-November. It’s about 3 hrs drive from Singapore & it is usually a hassle-free trip.
A typical itinerary for a day’s charter from Singapore is as follows:
You should leave at 5.00am latest to avoid the morning jam at the check-points, arrive in K. Rompin by about 8.00am & head to the jetty to start fishing by 8.30am till 5.30pm. If you arrive the day before, fishing could start from 8am to 5pm. Please be reminded to leave by 4pm from Singapore latest on any week day or it will be a very slow ride due to the heavy traffic at the checkpoints and along the route all the way up to Mersing.
For regional or international anglers, you are expected to make your own way to Kuala Rompin or Singapore. We are strictly operating as a fishing charter & do not offer packages as with tour agents. However, we will be happy to arrange or recommend local land transport, room & board on your behalf. The recommended resort stay will be at Lanjut Golf & Beach Resort & our boat jetty is located close to the resort or less than 5 minutes drive away. Ground transfers can be arranged if you do not have your own vehicle. If you’re fishing a couple of days with us, we will happy to show you around this small town & recommend a couple of decent local restaurants for dinner. Banks, supermarkets, pharmacy & various shops are available in town.
Bluesails Charters operate a small fleet of 34ft to 38ft by 8 ft fiberglass speedboats equipped with twin 4 strokes outboards engines. Boats have standard safety equipment onboard such as & first-aid box, latest GPS, fish-finder, binoculars, bait well, large cooler boxes with ice as well as toilet facility. The boat is clean, fast, safe, spacious, and has plenty of shade. It seats 6 comfortably excluding the crew (official licensed seating capacity is 8 max).
The boat is well maintained, comfortable & conducive, and being a smaller boat is ideal for Billfishing as it offers maneuverability & speed to point the angler in the direction of the fish and give you close personal interaction with the fish at boatside.
Bluesails fishing gear comprises mainly of Shimano reels such as TLD15s, 20s, 25s & 30As 2-speed 10-15kg Shimano backbone game fishing rods along with 30-50lb class lines. Gimbals are provided for stand-up fishing. Various models of Shimano & Daiwa spinning reels combined with other Penn rods & gear are used for bait-fishing, bottom, jigging & lure fishing.
You will almost certainly see, catch & boat your Sailfish for photos with our charters. As always, it’s more than a 100% effort on the part of our crew to get you the fishing results & put you on line with these magnificent Sails. This is our assurance to all our clients.
