Pekan, Malaysia

Pekan, Malaysia


Location Description: Located on the banks of the Pahang River 50 km south of Kuantan, Pekan is the royal town of the Malaysian state of Pahang Darul Makmur. Its name comes from a flower, the Bunga Pekan. Pekan is also the name of the district the town is situated in, and a parliamentary constituency in its own right.

Located an hours drive away from Rompin. The fishing in Pekan is similar to Rompin. However, you can expect XXL versions of the usual pelagic species like Sailfish, Diamond Trevally, Spanish Mackeral and the likes. Occasionally, you maybe greeted by a Thresher shark. Bottom fishing is another alternative to target species like Groupers, Parrot Fish and Snappers. Squid is also available here.

For the slightly more experienced and adventurous anglers, you can try popping for Giant Trevally at Jubilee Reef. A word of caution, be prepared to be bullied by these ferocious fighters.
