Latest Changes RPBIC 20220 Fishing Competition

Welcome back to Rompin!

We would like to invite all team to register online for upcoming RPBIC 2022 which is scheduled on Sept 16 - 18, 2022.

We are introducing some changes to this year competition to make this event more exciting. We are also shifting the event closer to Rompin town center this year to increase potential economic impacts as well as increase engagement with local communities especially if for billfish conservation. Billfish conservation effort is crucial to ensure RPBIC event continuity.

Among the new changes planned for this year are:

  • Four (4) anglers per fishing team. If your team has 3 anglers (as per prior years), we could help you get your fourth team member from our local anglers. (A welcomed change for couples since now 2 couples can make up a team)

  • The Competition fee is now RM1,600.00 per team. Previously fee was RM1,200 per team for 3 pax.

  • The fishing jetty for RPBIC 2022 will be at Rompin Cargo Jetty (Plus Code: RF5H+JCG Kuala Rompin, Pahang) next to LKIM Fishing Jetty which is closer to Rompin town center (2 km / 5 min) and 3 km to Pantai Hiburan.

  • The new event venue is Rompin Beach Resort.

  • We plan to organize casual BBQ dinner at 6pm after 1st day fishing at jetty area. It will be a good networking, experience sharing and reconnecting session especially after our last event in 2019.

We are also working on a few other improvements for RPBIC 2022 which we will share more information later. We shall continue with the changes introduced during RPBIC 2019 ie. the competition is "Catch-Tag-Release", Marshal will be assigned randomly to each boat on the morning of fishing day and we will have armed force personnel in our marshal team, random inspection of fishing gears to ensure compliance to IGFA requirements etc.

We can't wait to see you guys again next month.
