Miri City International Deep Sea Fishing Tournament expects to attract 134 anglers


MIRI: For the ninth consecutive year, the Miri City International Deep Sea Fishing Tournament is here again and this year it will be held from April 23 to 26.

Organised by Miri Anglers Club, the much anticipated event will be held at Luconia shoals, some 80 to 140 nautical miles from here.

According to Miri Anglers Club president, Yee Chung Chai, the event is expecting a total of 134 participants from 11 countries including Malaysia, Brunei, China, Britain, Australia, Norway, India and Singapore.

“Since its inauguration in 2007, this year will be seeing a bigger tournament with hundreds of participants and a dozen of boats involved. Of course, the challenges would be tougher,” he said.
