Take a chartered trip to Mengalum Island, where history lends itself back in time to the 16th century and is associated with the voyage of Ferdinand Magellan across Asian waters, for a unique fishing excursion. Located about 20 nautical miles away, it is also the pre-designated game fishing area for the annual Sabah International Fishing Tournament whereby participating anglers are restricted to only fishing within 20 miles radius around the island.
Species that can be encountered include wahoo, dorado, tuna, giant trevally, barracuda and even rainbow runner. Billfish like marlin and sailfish are rare but can be spotted occasionally.
A wide variety of marine and inland fishing spots offer a plethora of fish species and present the casual angler with an opportunity to discover one of the world's top fishing destinations. Anglers can test their skills at nearby island waters with depths of more than 150 metres and attempt to catch amberjacks, ruby, kerisi bali or black grouper species.
