When: May 28 to June 3 , 2008
Where : Rabaul, Papua New Guinea
Who : Raymond Yu, Norman Wu, Chow Hong, Wilson Mao and Benson Wong
What: Fishing for Marlin, Sail Fish, Wahoo, Spanish Mackerel, Tuna, Coral Trout, Emperor and a variety of bottom fish
My friend in Hong Kong, Norman Wu, was kind enough to take 4 of us to visit his buddy, Mr John Lau, in a small city , Rabaul. The trip was a great and successful fishing adventure. I thought I have seen most of the places on this planet. Well, am I wrong about that? So little that I know, I realize there is still some fantastic fishing spot in Papua New Guinea. Our host, John, is a native of Rabaul, second largest city in PNG. High light of this trip was a 28-hour fishing adventure onboard John’s personal sport fisher.
We ventured out to some very nice fishing spots, catching bottom fish all night long by anchoring in different locations. Bites were fantastic and everyone got quite tired reeling up the fish from 200 feet of water. Norman and Benson brought their electric reels along and that made life a lot easier. I will buy one too next time for that type of bottom fishing. You can see the different species in the attached pictures. Early in the morning, we cast with lures for Coral Trout (? ? ?. ). This is what we went for, one of the best tasting fish around. We landed a bunch and had a great time. We tried trolling most of the time in the afternoons for the big billfish (without any success). We managed to catch a few Spanish mackerel and Wahoo.Our host, John, is the IGFA (International Game Fish Association) representative in PNG. He is very knowledgeable fisherman, a lot better than I am. He won numerous tournament trophies around the world. His next trip is slated for July 08 in Kona, Hawaii where he will be competing for another Marlin title. We felt so fortunate that he captained the entire trip for us.
We walked into his home without any fishing associated items and walked out with 5 coolers full of treasured fish, all cleaned and frozen for our trip back to HK.

Where: Laramie, Wyoming, USA
When: Sep 21 to Sep 26, 2007
Who: Raymond Yu anzd Herbert Lo
What: Pronghorn Antelope Hunt
Herbert and I just came back from an antelope hunt in Wyoming. Both of us had a great time and harvested a very respectful trophy. Yellow Stone Park, Wyoming - Due to some mixup in our hunting license, we were unable to hunt as scheduled when we got to our camp. We changed course and took a side trip to the Yellow Stone Park. It was a great trip seeing the pristine nature of the fall foliage, the ever free roaming Bison, Elk….. The Geyser and volcanic rocks are a great sight too. Cody, Wyoming - A mere few hundred years of history has a rather rich heritage that every American is proud of. See it here
July 18, 2007
I just came back from a salmon fishing trip from Langara Island, B.C.,
Canada Sunday night ( July 17 ). Four of us took this 5 day trip oufitted by the Langara Fishing Lodge . King
Salmon fishing is getting tougher every year. There were lots of Silver
salmon in the 8 lb (plus minus) range but there were not enough big Kings
for us to take home , many were teens. We caught and released lots of
Silvers. We managed to take back 80 lb of fillet salmon and halibut to fill
our freezer at home. The biggest King salmon caught by my buddy , Herbert, tipped the scale at 34
lb. My biggest was only 24 lb.
With 68 anglers in the lodge , the biggest King salmon was 53 lb.
