Where to buy fishing supplies / Kepong / Kepong Aquarium

Caesar introduced me to this place. Apparently a good place to get decent sized baitfish. Has a fair bit of lines, rods and reels.

This place would be your “sikit – sikit sahaja” shop. Situated in shop lot this place does even sell live fish for the table. There were two huge tanks of tilapia that were sized 500 grammes and above.

The shop is run by some very sweet old ladies. So chaps be about your best behaviour. The prices here are said to be relatively cheap.

One thing that was found to be most interesting is the tank full of snakeheads (haruan). These fish are all destined for the table. Ranging from 300 grammes and above.

According to Caesar this tank empties very fast and all the fishes above will move within the week.  Some of the fishes here are caught and some come from farms. The caught one bore some scars on its face.

Live bait is aplenty. The whole range is available. From baby jelawats, catfish to frogs (both green and brown).

Besides a fair amount of live baits you can find your basic equipment here too.

The place is sufficient. Please don’t expect to find a calcutta here if you’re looking for one. There is another shop down the road for this.

Here are some pics of the tanks.

So folks, if you’re in the Kepong area looking to get bait this is a good place to visit. You can buy bait and dinner at the same time. Now thats service.

Cheers,

SK

PS. I missed Malaysia!
