Kuala Rompin, the capital of the state of Pahang on the southeast coast of the Malaysian peninsula, is also one of the world’s sailfish capitals. The fastest way to get to Kuala Rompin is from Singapore, which is 220 km away, or about 2.5 hours by car. From Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia, it is 360 km or about 4.5-hour drive.

Mike Tan was born in Singapore, raised in Canada and is now living in Malaysia where he runs Bluesails Sportfishing Charters:

 “I discovered Kuala Rompin in 1997, started hosting fishermen in 2003 and have been a certified IGFA captain since 2009. We have a new fiberglass boat 39 feet long, 9 feet wide with brand new Yamaha 250hp, the latest electronics and toilets. All fishing gear is provided, as well as snorkeling gear. The peak sailfish season runs from mid-August to mid-November.

During this period, fish can be found around FADs 15 miles or 30 miles from Rompin. Boats also catch dolphinfish, kingfish, cobia and small black marlin weighing between 50 and 150 lbs. “Switch baiting is the main technique to catch sailfish,” says Tan, who adds: “We can recommend hotels and transportation companies to meet anglers at the airport. We are also happy to guide our guests to the best seafood restaurants in Kuala Rompin."
