Recreational fishing

Recreational fishing

Recreational and sport fishing describe fishing primarily for pleasure or competition. Recreational fishing has conventions, rules, licensing restrictions and laws that limit the way in which fish may be caught; typically, these prohibit the use of nets and the catching of fish with hooks not in the mouth. The most common form of recreational fishing is done with a rod, reel, line, hooks and any one of a wide range of baits or lures such as artificial flies. The practice of catching or attempting to catch fish with a hook is generally known as angling. In angling, it is sometimes expected or required that fish be returned to the water (catch and release). Recreational or sport fishermen may log their catches or participate in fishing competitions.

Big-game fishing describes fishing from boats to catch large open-water species such as tuna, sharks and marlin. Sport fishing (sometimes game fishing) describes recreational fishing where the primary reward is the challenge of finding and catching the fish rather than the culinary or financial value of the fish's flesh. Fish sought after include marlin, tuna, tarpon, sailfish, shark and mackerel although the list is endless.
Bali has many spot to do recreational fishing.

Bali Fishing Boat is Jukung

Bali Fishing Boat is Jukung

The Balinese generally use jukung for fishing. These boats will venture out into the coastal waters in the evening and return with their catch before sunrise to sell at local seafood markets. However, the impact of tourism has meant that many of the island’s traditional fishermen can now supplement their limited incomes by taking paying passengers to surf and snorkel at offshore reefs and neighbour islands.
Most jukung are fairly small and this enables them to be hauled out of the water and parked on the sandy beachfront with relative ease. With an average length of approximately 5-meters and width of just 1½ -metres, a jukung can safely carry only two or three passengers. Larger models built using the same traditional design methods, utilize outboard motors and can carry divers and heavy scuba equipment to coral reef dive sites. Some entrepreneurial owners have even modified their jukung into glass bottom boats for visitors to view Bali’s amazing underwater marine life.
Although jukung may appear simple enough to the international travelers’ eye, like most things in Bali there is an underlying symbolism associated with these craft and they are constructed following a strict set of religious guidelines. When a fisherman decides to build a new boat he must first carefully choose the tree that will be used for its timber. The Balinese prefer to use the wood from the indigenous Belalu or Camplung tree, which is light, strong and ideal for boat building. Such a tree can only be cut down on an auspicious date in accordance to the ancient Balinese calendar and a special day is also sought for construction to commence. All members of the local fishing community offer their carpentry skills to construct a new jukung and this social interaction is a vital element of the Balinese Hindu culture.
The majority of jukung are built using a set of dimensions that are closely related to the owner’s personal body measurements. The Balinese strongly believe in harmonizing with the physical environment and spiritual world, thus human measurements are used in an effort to balance these invisible forces. Just like a human body, a jukung is not symmetrical. In fact, the bamboo floats that are attached to both sides and run from the bow to the stern are not even parallel. Yet this basic, but ingenious design gives the jukung a heightened degree of stability when out on the open seas.
Once the jukung has been fully constructed and brightened up with a bold coat of paint, it then undergoes a complex blessing ceremony. Offerings of rice, flowers and fruit are presented to appease the Gods and the jukung is sprinkled with holy water by a priest before it is considered seaworthy. The jutting bow is decorated with an image of the mythical Gajah Mina (elephant fish) with its fierce bulging eyes to ward off evil. The spirit of Gajah Mina is also though to bear the power of night vision and guide the jukung through all sorts of weather conditions.
The price of a trip in a traditional Balinese jukung is negotiable and some of the older fishermen have some fascinating tales about the superstitions and the spirit of the sea.

Basic Fishing Tips For Lake Fishing

For most anglers, the purpose of going fishing is to catch fish. If you have ever spent the day fishing in a lake without catching any fish, then you know just how frustrating it is to go home empty handed after hours of fishing. Fortunately, there are some things an angler can do to increase their chances of catching more fish. This article will discuss several tips to help make your next fishing trip more successful.

First, and most important, make sure the lake you plan to fish has been stocked with fish. Fishing a lake that you are not sure has any fish in it will only be a waste of time. Knowing the type of fish the lake is stocked with will help you decide what type of bait to use.

Fish are unpredictable. It is impossible to know when or what fish will be feeding on at any given time. So, switching between live bait and various artificial baits will only increase your chances of attracting some type of fish. Try varying between top water baits, spinner baits, plastic worms or live baits like minnows or worms until something works.

When you get to the lake you will be fishing, take a good look at around and locate any lily pads, logs, or large rocks where fish may be hiding, since these will be prime areas to target. Don't stay in the same place too long. Cast your bait near lily pads, logs and rocks where fish are likely to be hiding. If you don't catch anything or get any bites after a few casts, then move on to the next spot. The more ground you cover the better your chances of finding and catching fish.

Going fishing and having nothing to show for it is just no fun. The next time you set out to go fishing, follow these simple tips and make your next fishing trip more successful. Just remember to bring something to put the fish in.

Amed Bali more than just fishing

Amed Bali more than just fishing

Amed is located in East Bali Karangasem. To get there you need to use the main road from Amlapura and Culik. Amed Bali is mostly a quiet place with a stunning ocean view, Gunung Agung view from Amed Since this area is one of the best places in Bali to go to for scuba diving, snorkling and fishing, travelers mainly come here to marvel at the diverse sea life.

Besides diving and snorkeling the main activity is just relaxing far away from the crowds in the south... the Amed area offers stunning ocean vistas. Headland after headland offers amazing ocean landscapes. Everywhere you go you will see crystal clear water which we can't get enough of...The landscape is very arid and the slopes of the mountain all look bare.

Rice fields are out of the question and the only food that is grown in the wet season are peanuts, soya beans and corn. Other sources income are salt winning and fishing which is done all year round. Especially around the villages Amed and Congkang you can see the salt winning activities while the other beaches are mostly covered with colorful Jukungs which are traditional fishing boats. I guess besides the fact that it is right at the sea and its refreshing breeze, quiet Amed ocean view Amed is a really easy going place where you could be the only one staying in one of the hotels or restaurants.

And the locals in Amed seem to mind their own business. Despite the fact that they are friendly and helpful, the Balinese in this part of the island don't seem to be behind you every time you turn around. While we are usually up and about during our trips through Bali, Amed made us just want to slow down a bit and enjoy the breathtaking setting.

So if you want to leave the crowd behind without anybody wanting something from you then this is definitely the place to go, this part of Bali is one of the quietest and let's hope it remains that way. Its beaches are rocky and or have black sand and there are no waves so it is not popular among sunbathers and surfers.

The majority of the travelers who do head to Amed are divers. This area has one of the best diving sites in Bali. Not only do divers like to discover the marine life in this area, but they also take the boat up to Tulamben where you can find other popular diving sites.
