Tasik Temenggor Discovery Island (TTDI) is the No. 1 Eco Island Lake Lodge in Malaysia!
So here are a few things that will be helpful for you if you plan to go Tomanhunting at TTDI.1.
Make sure you have the right fishing rod for Toman. You can ask theplace you buy your fishing rods and make sure that it is suitable forTomans.2.
The bait that you use is catfish or ‘keli’ which you can get at the Gerikwet market at a very cheap price. Get the small size ones. Make surethey are alive!3.
You can fish for Tomans around the island especially at the back of theA-Hut chalet areas. Please ensure that you inform our team that youwant to fish for Toman so that they can help you out. Please take notethat we only allow catch and release as we are preserving the place.4.
The best way to go Toman hunting is to take up our fishing packageswhereby you go out to Toman spots around the lake with a boat and aguide. For these fishing packages you need to book in advance when youbook your TTDI package.5.
Once you have your bait fixed now you just need to wait for the Tomanair bubbles.6.
The moment you see the bubble you need to cast the bait towards thebubble. You only have a window of 5 to 8 seconds to do this. Theobjective is so that the Toman will be able to detect the live ‘keli’which your bait and go for it.7.
Keep on casting as you see the bubbles.8.
When you feel a bite, let it go first. If you see your rod bending down,than you know that a Toman has gotten the bait.9.
Now what you need to is to reel the Toman in. You need to be patient asyou need to tire the fish first. They have a lot of energy. Make sure youposition yourself well on the boat. Don’t be surprised if you are pulledover board. It can happen!10.
We have had people who lost their fishing rods.11.
Once you manage to get the Toman up, take a good picture with you andyour catch and than release it back. We want to preserve the place forothers and for future generations to enjoy.12.
Last but not least enjoy and have fun!
