We met in North Bali, to dive at the famous Indospearfishing FAD. Indonesia Spearfishing Charter bought the FAD 2 years ago and it was the best investment!! All year we had interesting visitor such as school of Yellowfin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Spanish Mackerel, Wahoo , dolphin , sailfish and naughty pilot whale. But with Pelagic fish we cannot predict who will be lurking at the FAD hunting our little fish farm.
The condition was perfect, no wind or swell. When we arrive no current which is not good because usually there is no fish. But there was plenty of mahi-mahi. We shot few for dinner, then on our last dive we saw school of baby yellowfin tuna. We couldn’t get close but there was 100s of them.
Then we went back mainland to dive at the reef to hunt some snapper. When we finish we had some fresh unicorn fish Sashimi that Justin and Antok prepare for all of us and many cold beer. We had interesting conversation, but the highlight was Ayman Comment, ” I think the ocean here is Desert, and over fished !” That is very good point Ayman and i hope our Fishery minister the Ibu Susi cantik read the Blog because ayman made very good point about our amazing ocean, we need strict quota, strict regulation and tell the Chinesse and Taiwanesse vessel to fish their own desert water!!. It was good dive and company. Ayman Hajo thought me many interesting lesson from his experience diving all around the world. It was good start of friendship and looking forward to dive many more trip with you brother!
