Fishing in Malaysia (Fresh and Blue Water)

At Gecko Adventure we provide our fishing guide services for the following:-

The Giant Snakehead/ Channa micropeltes (Toman)

This species is prolific in the man made dams, lakes and rivers in Malaysia. This is one of the most famous fresh water sports fishing species. With its tenacious looks and aggressive nature the Toman is deemed to be one of the most if not “the most vicious and aggressive†fresh water fish in existence. Pound for pound this is the hardest fighting fresh water fish in Malaysia, with its ability to destroy reels and crush lures and break fishing rods, all in a blink of an eye. Fishing Toman is what we call “close quarter†fishing as they are sneaky creatures which would usually hold near sunken logs and tree stumps, as such we do recommend the usage of nothing below 30lb test gear. We can fish Toman all year round in Malaysia however the best time to fish it would be from Mid December till end August.

Jungle Perch (Sebarau)

This species can be found in streams, dams and lakes. Their numbers unfortunately have dwindled and are somewhat a rarity these days. They are also another fish that is famous for its aggressive nature hunt in schools; they readily take fast moving lures. The Sebarau is a great sportfish; and anything below 2kg is great fun and will give you a good fight on light tackle. The Sebarau which weighs from 2 kilogram and above are highly sought after by anglers for their legendary speed, power and fighting prowess. They are known for their ability to crush hooks and crushing lures. The Sebarau are exceptionally active at dawn and dusk, they can be found near submerged logs or overhanging trees and weedy banks - flooded banks etc are also favorites. We can fish Sebarau all year round, best time to fish Sebarau is during the Monsoon and wet season from Mid November till end March.

Peacock Bass

This is an introduced species and can be found in the central region of Malaysia, mainly in mining ponds and lakes. They readily take lures and flies. The Peacock Bass that are 12 inches and above gives a great fight. We can fish this species all year round.

SailFish (Istiophorus platypterus)

Sailfish fighting hard

Malaysia has one of the top Sailfish (the smallest and fastest member of the Bill fish family) fishing grounds in the world and is also known as the best sailfish fishing grounds in Asia. With high numbers during sailfish fishing season you would be able to hook up anything from 5 to 20 over sailfish a day around 30kg to 40kg size each. We can fish for the Sailfish from April till October, season is at its best from August till October, and we do not have any charters from November till March due to the Monsoon. Please note bookings for sail fishing are usually made by anglers 12 months in advance (yes they book again when they finish their trips). Short notice bookings are can be difficult to accomodate.

Fishing with Gecko Adventure (Fresh and Blue water)

At Gecko Adventure no inland body of water is deemed inaccessible or blue water too far; if there are fish we will find it and fish it.

If you are serious angler or just looking for an excuse to get back to nature or some fun in the sun, come and join us on our fishing trips, we have a wide variety of trips planned through out the year targeting different species of fish all year round.

All our guides are well versed in the area which the fishing safari runs, and also most forms of fishing. We believe in providing you with the proper information and guidance that will give you the best chance to land that trophy fish.

At Gecko Adventure we are pro-conservation and as such all fishing trips organized by us are pure catch and release trips or observe strict bag limits.

All our fishing trips come fully equipped, from the 4x4, all the way to the fishing boats and fishing kayaks; we have the experience, local knowledge and equipment you will ever need for your Malaysian Fishing Adventure.

Eco Fishing

Sailfish fight on a kayak

At Gecko Adventure we also the first fishing guide company in Malaysia to provide and organize eco-fishing trips (Guided Kayak fishing trips).

These guided kayak fishing trips (something fairly new in Malaysia) offers you a chance to immerse in what we are calling eco-fishing. With our logistic capabilities and experienced guides you would have the opportunity to experience the closest form of back to nature fishing you will ever find. The experience of having the vicious Toman swimming around and under the kayak, a large sailfish hitting your bait less than 2 feet from your kayak, feeding egrets and swimming snakes are just some of the wildlife you would be able to experience with this form of fishing.

On all our trips, lures and artificial baits are preferred but we do prepare and provide all bait, upon your request at no extra charge. We will provide you with a list of lures that you should bring accordingly on all our trips, if you are unable to get the recommended lures all our guides come fully prepared with a great selection of lures which you can use for your trip (Terms & Conditions apply), and should you require additional lures; we will be more then happy to pick some up at the local tackle shop for you.

If you don't have your own fishing tackle, don't worry about it, just let us know, for a small fee we will be more then happy to prepare a set for you.
