The seas east of Kuala Rompin, Malaysia are home to one of the largest aggregation of Sailfish found anywhere in the world. Tens of thousands of Sailfish feed on massive schools of baitfish between March and November. Calm seas, experienced crews and quality equipment have made Rompin a world class fishery. There are a number of charter boats in Rompin but few are as professionally crewed and equipped as Magic Billfish Charters fleet. Our boats, skippered by experienced English-speaking crew, have the best catch rates of the local charter fleet. Our crews work hard to keep our boats close to the schools of Sailfish and follow the migration of these majestic fish as they move along the Rompin coast. During the Sailfish season our boats are the most heavily booked boats in Rompin, this gives us day-to-day knowledge as to where the baitfish schools and Sailfish are located and saves us time in finding the fish for you. Multiple hook-ups and double figure catches in a single day are a reality during the peak season. The areas we fish are close to port which maximizes your time spent fishing. Magic Billfish Charters take sailfishing to another level with a personal and professional approach to the best charter fishing off the coast of Malaysia.
The waters off the coast from Rompin are an unique Asian fishery. A strict Catch-and-Release policy ensures quality fishing and abundant catches. Anglers here target Sailfish using a variety of techniques to include live baiting, skip baiting, casting surface lures and fly fishing. Slow trolling, casting and drifting live bait are the preferred fishing methods for Sailfish and produce spectacular action on light and medium tackle. The waters off Rompin are world renowned for flyfisherman who wish to experience landing a Sailfish on a flyrod. We troll teasers to raise the Sails to the fly. Our hook-less teasers are effective in making the Sails aggressive and bringing them to within the casting range of our guests. Oftentimes the Sails become so aggressive that they can be teased all the way to the boat. The number of raised Sailfish per day here, will probably be higher than anywhere else in the world.
During your charter with us we recommend staying at the Rompin Beach Resort. Rompin Beach Resort has its own private beach, and got good facilities and welcoming staff to insure that your stay with us will be enjoyable and comfortable. The resort is ideal for anglers and has a restaurant offering international and local cuisine. When you are not fishing you can relax with a drink poolside. We also got a fully-air-conditioned 4 bed room homestay with wifi, big screen TV and a nice living room available close to the city center. If you plan to bring 2 or more friends or family, on your charter with us, home stays are an economical and popular option to hotel accommodations. Magic Billfish Charters also offer charter departures from the Tioman Islands which are known for their beautiful beaches and world class snorkelling and diving. For non-fishing family members Tioman Island is a great place to stay while you are out battling the Sails. South of Tioman Island, at Palau Aur, there is good fishing for bigger Black Marlin, Dorado and King Mackerel.
