The only downside would be the size of the man-made pond which you can see here. If it's crowded, it gets competitive. However, sometimes prawning really depends on luck. You could keep getting prawns while the person right next to you gets nothing for hours =x
Prawning is relatively easy compared to fishing so even children can join in. When you see the rod bending a little, give it a soft tug with your wrist and fight with the prawn for a few seconds before lifting it out of the water.
"Prawn oh prawn.. Where are you?"
We got a handful of prawns then this big guy came up! As jackpots, several lobsters have been thrown into the pond. FYI, you have to pay an additional RM 40 for the lobster. He won't tell you until you're leaving.
RM 40 so take photos yea..
Next to the pond is a picnic area with BBQ pits. There is also a steamboat area. The pits are usually RM 45 inclusive of charcoal but we used it for free that day.
The men got to work while I.. lepak-ed around taking photos LOL
We were informed that there's a Jaya Grocer down the road so we got some oyster mushrooms, corn, brinjals, bacon strips and meat from the butcher. Tropicana Ebi Fishing has salt, BBQ sauce and spices ready for you to cook.
Turned out not too shabby.. Except some of them were too salty and burnt as the fire was unpredictable xD
They charge RM 18/hour and provide free rods as well as nets. Baits (earthworm) are available at RM 10 which is probably usable for 3 rounds of 2/3 people.
