Kong kong village is situated by the Johor River. Got good fishing ground, meh? Not that I know of. I spent a large part of my school holidays during my childhood in the 60s staying with my grandparents who had a house by the river there. Had a great time fishing but not much of a good catch there, unless there is a secret fishing spot that I am not aware of. :mrgreen:

If kong kong is a type of clam, so how does one fish for them since the title is "kong kong fishing...."? Using a line with bait, a net, etc.?? #-o :-k :mrgreen: As far as I know, for clams, ppl usually dig them from the mud bed during low tide.

As extracted from Wikipedia :

"Kong Kong" according to ancient Malaysian folklore, is a gigantic mythical tiger that was said to harbor great wisdom and feast upon the hearts of weak minded villagers.

Kong Kong is a small village near Pasir Gudang, Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia.
Kong Kong is a haven for anglers and seasports enthusiasts with the waterfront providing a perfect setting. It is also famous for its seafood. The quiet and tranquil setting of the sea front adds to the romantic dinners here, especially popular with young people from Johor Bahru and Singapore. For those seeking a quiet place to spend their evenings or weekends, they can put up for a a night or two here. A drive or walk to the nearby fishing village is an added unique experience in itself.

Not far away, is the 117-acre (0.5 km2) Agriculture Park, which are planted with many varieties of durian, the king of Malaysian fruit. A large area of pandan coconuts and other types of fruits can also be found. There are also several ponds here, a driving range and a greenery. The park is simply an amazing place to spend some quality time with the family or memorable experiences with a group of friends. The area recently received Broadband coverage.

There are small fibreglass motorboats for hire. However, the river system around Kong Kong are filled with submerged stumps and shallow sand banks. If one is not familiar, can result in damage to the motor's lower unit. So it is better to hire a fishing guide.

I remember there is a rocky reef in front of Kampong Tg Buai that always produce some small groupers and red snappers.

Ai Ya! You two 1 talking chicken and another talking about duck la.

Kong Kong is a place about 8km up the Johore River North of Pulau Tekong, referred to by the thread starter and Redstorm. I was told that it is a good place to fish for Groupers, but never fish there before. On the other hand, I believe Bartmp8 was referring to the small shellfish called Gonggong by locals as in Lala and gonggong.

Syntheticbr0, it would be useful to say where you are starting from for this trip. Singapore or JB and how you plan to get there, by road or by river.

Kong KOng in the 60s was very ulu. Some of my uncles even claimed to have heard tiger roaring from the inside of the plantation infront of their house. My mum and her 11 other siblings were all born in Kong Kong. My grandparents used to be the richest family there and owned a few kelongs and a few fishing trawlers before the war. Their house was the only 2-storey building in the whole kampong with the front operating as a provision shop. During high tide, the water reached right up to the back of the house. I enjoyed most during my childhood was the frequent trips there during school holidays for fishing and swimming. I remember one of my uncle used to row his small boat and setting up nets along the river for flower crabs. On one of the trips with him to the middle of the river, he harvested about 8 big basketful of crabs! The river around the area is not a good fishing ground although there are certain parts where u can get certain type of fishes. ALthough there is nothing much to see and do there nowadays, I still make trips there for nostalgic reason. Maybe, I should try fishing there again. :(
