Thanks for the info! And away from the shore haven’t you tried it? Is the squid real or synthetic? And you haven’t tried trolling? Even if you can’t answer, I wish you big trophies!

In any restaurant on the beach for 1 dollar you will be given a squid for the whole day fishing. By the way, I heard that on the pen there is a fishing spot on the lake – and there at 10 kg on a usual fishing rod pulled out, but then the caught fish has to buy for 3 bucks a kg.

Sorientiruyte around which beaches are possible to fish from the shore. Where there is a rocky stripes overlooking the sea. Just going to Sihanoukville for a month in January, so I think to take a spinning or not worth the bother.

For big fish need to go to the outer islands: Koh Prince (30 miles from Sihanoukville) or Koh Polyvai (60 miles). The coast is regularly trawled by a decent fleet of Khmer boats, so the big fish here are not often.

That’s understandable, of course. But I’m not for trophies, so with pebbles to pokit in his own pleasure.

Yeah near trawl chambers and farther trawl Thais and Vietnamese and hard so the likelihood of doubtful is the sea!

I used to go fishing in the evenings with the locals. It was just in January. They worked at the hotel where I was staying, so they could only go after 10 p.m. We lived on Victoria Hill at the Meli Chanda, so we’d just go down to the sea. And right off the pier or off the rocks, they’d fish. They had the simplest tackle: plastic bottle, line, weight and a couple of hooks. The bait was shrimp. I was given the only spinning rod.) What can I say? I personally did not catch anything, because I was planning to go by boat at night for squid, so I basically treated Khmer people to drinks and snacks, and asked the opportunity. They catch on the lantern, the squid comes up at night (and what a squid – right up to the pier at Victoria Beach near the “Airport”!) Boat for the night, there was a deal, for $ 40 with them. But it didn’t work out: went to Cam Pot. Next time I will definitely go. As a farewell I bought in a store squid fishing tackle (artificial) yes medical clip, with which all our fishermen go. And left them as a memento. But I can tell you that they often caught fish at night. Grouper (or snapper, what?) Two or three kilograms, I think. Once caught a stingray (small – up to 1 kg). And a barracuda (but I have not seen it myself – according to stories, if not lie). In short – there are fish. But better on a boat and at night. It would be nice to have a luminous wobbler. And this time in January I would also like to be in Sihanouk, so (maybe) together we go.

Great! If anything, write in person, maybe we’ll cross paths. I will be in Sihanoukville from 04.01 to 02.02.

Hunting – in what sense? Underwater? I would, but I have a gun in Goa. Maybe I could buy one on the spot? Unfortunately, I did not look at the prices. Although I went to a fishing shop in Sihanouk.

Fishing. Fishing for spinning, feeder, fly fishing, hand fishing, and winter fishing

Cambodia. Tropical economy fishing experience. Part 1

Cambodia. Experience of tropical fishing economy class.

I would very much like to tell more about this fabulous kingdom, especially since there is a lot to tell.

For example, you can tell about the complete absence of traffic rules, and that despite the fact that the private fleet consists of 95% of the company “Toyota” pickups and SUVs (TLC-200, 2006, worth 10,000-12,000). But scooters are the primary means of transportation.

READ
The sights of the city on the Neva

At intersections, traffic is heavy in all directions at once. How this happens is a mystery to us, although we filmed this process on video and viewed in slow motion. There is only one explanation: everybody respects each other and lets the traffic pass as reasonably as possible. And a huge Corn, for example, has no advantages over a scooter. EVERYONE is equal on the roads there. We have not seen a single accident or broken down vehicle. Here, if you click on the last screen on the http://fishki.net/comment.php?id=25219 page, you can get an idea of the process.

We could also talk about the officials when at the customs when there is an increased influx of people wishing to enter the country, a general in a white uniform with axelbands, epaulets and a mighty order bar comes out and starts accepting documents like a simple clerk. (It’s a pity I was not allowed to take photos.)

The traffic police/police were seen only twice, and they were busy pushing out on the hands of cargo scooters (tuk-tuks) that suddenly stalled in the middle of the road. That is, what they should be doing, regardless of the country of residence))). For us it was wild.

Can I tell you about public transport, when the bus of the same scale as ours Kaluga – Khvastovichi is equipped with five TVs, air conditioning, a toilet, and the steward (!) periodically hands out free drinks and cakes. Four hours ride in incomprehensible to a Russian comfort – a little less than 100 rubles in our money.

This is despite the fact that the price of fuel is almost the same as in our country. But it is imported there, and we produce it…

Cambodia: busCambodia: customs

Of course, here you could tell about the prices, when living in 8-room (kitchens, bathrooms, toilets – do not count) apartments with cooking and cleaning at 300 meters from the ocean – 120 U.S. dollars a month. A 20-room hotel with a license downtown sold for $10,000 of the same dollars. The national average wage was $40-60 dollars. Lunch (without denying yourself anything) 3-5 bucks.

Definitely should have told about the cuisine, when on the 3rd day you do not care what you have on your plate – crabs or spiders, and frogs and vegetables suddenly becomes a traditional dinner dish for the whole company. About a completely unknown (even to me, a biologist), very diverse fruit with its indescribable taste.

I would very much like to tell about Khmer (Cambodian) girls, frantically beautiful in their exoticism, the standard of male beauty which is fat (means healthy and rich), bespectacled (means smart and in office) and bearded (beard in Khmers – a rarity), white (well, it is clear) man.

Cambodia: girl

Cambodian girls strikingly differ from Chinese or Vietnamese with almost European features and skin color – not yellow, but rather mulatto – coffee with milk. They are contactable, direct, surprisingly affectionate, graceful and hardy, and communication with a farang (white gentleman) is still the subject of acute envy of girlfriends, a fascinating adventure, which they try to prolong, and at departure from the country they have to be persuaded (!) to accept a small (for us) amount of money as a gift.

Cambodia: girlCambodia: girl

But about all this write other resources (eg, http://forum.awd.ru/viewforum.php?f=227), our blog devoted to fishing, that’s about it, my dear, and I will write in this article, trying not to be distracted by the accompanying exotic.

By the way, a week before us in Cambodia was Tema, he has a report at: http://www.tema.ru/travel/cambodia/.

The expedition consisted of 8 people, most of whom had to do with either biology or fishing. It was inspired by Streltsov Alexey Borisovich (aka Guru), Doctor of Biology, professor at KSPU, who has been visiting this country annually for 9 years (or even several times a year). We still had questions about business in this country, but the main purpose of the event was tourism, and 4 of the group had fishing.

Cambodia: fishermenCambodia: barbs

Fish are everywhere there. It seems that if the lawn is filled with water, there will be all sorts of barbs (they are there instead of roach) and cichlids (instead of perch) swimming there in the morning. Precious for the aquarist glass and meshkozhabernye catfish are sold there in the market exclusively for gastronomic purposes.

For example, in a monument of ancient architecture of Angkhor (which impresses beyond the pyramids) found a muddy puddle, depth is unlikely to the knee, but this puddle was just bubbling with “boilers”, consider what kind of fish, failed, because the water is very muddy, and gear with them was not.

In the town of Simriepe, where we lived the first two days, there was a small tributary of the Mekong, where we went on the first day with spinning rods. We didn’t catch any, but we did get to watch the barbs that a local Khmer was catching on dough. I also took a picture of a 33rd Yo-Zuri on a lotus leaf.

I will honestly try to talk about the fishing and then formulate conclusions that may help readers prepare for a similar event.

Let me say at once. Solving the fishing issues our foursome was hard at work and quite serious. Actually, on the beach of our hotel we bathed only twice. On the first and the last day. Nothing interesting in bathing in 30-degree water at 43 degrees.

Well, I took photos and videos underwater on the reefs. But it was hard to call it swimming, because I swam in my shirt, pants and gloves. That not to get burned or run into something sharp and poisonous, but about that later.

But Valentina went out to the pier every night and fished with her skippers. From time to time she was joined by the other members of the group, and even by the hotel staff, whose shift was over by then. In just a couple of days the hotel was boasting a quartet of f$cked up fishermen, exhausting themselves both day and night, instead of a normal rest with their bellies upside down.

Cambodia: bastardCambodia: spinoff

The first thing we did was to go to Fisherman, the only known saltwater fisherman on the coast, a Yankee by birth. He honestly told us that there were no big fish off the coast of Sihanouk in March. Tuna, hammerhead shark, barracuda, swordfish, marlin, GT all pass in packs in the fall. Nevertheless, we paid him 25 bucks each and he took us out a day later in an adapted boat to the bank, where we fished in plenty of “small colored coral bastards”.

Cambodia: bastardCambodia: bastard

The rods were quite professional: roller rings, Penn and Shimano multis. We were fishing for shrimp, squid and cuttings. Igor, to the laughter of the crew, tied a hook, half a palm, on his spinning wheel and hooked a live rounder, 200 grams. The laughter stopped abruptly when a 2-pound leopard-colored grouper was honorably taken on board. Know our people!

Cambodia: rodCambodia: grouper

A day later we hired a motorboat (about 10 meters long) for 60 bucks with a Khmer man who didn’t speak English at all and we spent the entire day cruising along the coast and islands in hopes of finding fish. I personally took to Cambodia 20 kg. tackle, but did not foresee that will need a sounder. And by gauge method we have not found a single ridge, not a single can. But caught a lot of beauty, including fugu or ball fish and funny octopus.

Rather helpful to us was an old friend of our professor Nikolai Doroshenko, living in Cambodia since the wild 90s, and since then has become one of the big businessmen of the country. Suffice it to say that his office is located in the An-24 plane, which adorns the largest dance floor of the city. Nearby is his own pier with 5 or 6 boats. Drives a red Hummer decorated with sickles and hammers as a protest against Cambodia’s American encroachment).

Active assistance was provided by his employee, professional traveler Vitalik: http://www.vitalysuper.com/.

And he (Nikolai) also has his own Carnation Island, on which he built a boutique hotel for several people. Pugacheva, Makarevich, Pr.Lebedinsky and others have been there.

Cambodia: CarnationCambodia: Carnation Hotel

While the hotel was empty, we were allowed to use the island for fishing. The first time we went there with the whole group for a few hours, with the purpose of acquaintance. The lazy part of our group went to see the interiors of the hotel, famous for the fact that the ocean can be seen through a glass wall from the toilet for 15 km in all directions))).

Cambodia: famous toilet bowlCambodia: Carnation from the toilet bowl

We caught some small garfish with Chinese Halko and small poppers. Bright coral bastard was also biting properly on shrimp, squid and fish cuttings.

Cambodia: gargantuanCambodia: bastard

The non-swimmering part of the group quickly got fed up with it all and we were forced to return to town.

In the end, during the week of cruising we found out that fishing on the ocean, as well as on the river, is better at dawn. And so at 6 a.m. Captain Pyn again took us to the Nail.

Cambodia: dawnCambodia: dawn

I guess everyone here has an idea of what a bass cauldron is like. But around the pier at dusk the cauldrons would periodically boil up as at least half a ton of some kind of chum jumped out of the water with a roar. The first few times it was kind of pissy, but then we got used to it.

I started throwing Hulk’s 20-cm popper with a surf rod (4.2m, test 200g) into the storms a hundred meters from the pier. And on the tenth – the twentieth wire there it was taken by a barracuda. I pumped it to the pier, where the candles began. Half-meter fool went on the tail around the pier, opening half a meter mouth, in the corner of which, as a small earring, dangled a huge popper.

While Igor put on gloves, khmeri from the crew of the ship grabbed my cord, gave slack, barracuda immediately coiled up 1 meter of steel millimeter leash and “tsikul” tooth cord 0.34 mm. And for a long time stood 5 meters from the pier, trying to understand what it was, and what this piercing is hanging on her lip. Then, taking her time, she went into the reef, waving a brown fin the size of a good flipper. The big popper was one, and on a 15-cm, 40-gram, though there were a few exits, but to take – no one took. Yes, and made a lot of noise while pulling. The sun came up. Cauldrons also stopped, though shoals of khamsa were near pier. It’s a pity, of course, but overall I was satisfied. Yes, and twist this tackle continuously can be on the strength of an hour, then the shoulder and lower back begins to fall off. People were catching small groupers and tuna.
