Russian Beginning…

The 1st month of 2014 saw us out fishing after a bit of wind that usually raises its head briefly, that signifies the end of the North East monsoon winds. We were this time fishing with a trio from Russia. It was their first trip to the Andaman Islands and we were keen to put them into some fish to start with. Fishing was pretty much as predicted and the GT were balling up schools of bait off the reefs and were ready to come up and take poppers. This time round we had a couple of Ivan’s and an Alexander on board so the crew with little difficulty got their names right! Ivan with a nice GT caught on the first day we were out fishing. The standard set of poppers came out and poppers like the Cubera 150 landed the most fish. Most fish were caught off structure and we did come across some nervous bait, which are tell tale signs of GT in the area. Ivan with a small GT that took his popper right at the boat. Sometimes the GT get very aggressive and will come up and smash a popper right beside the boat. A couple of Coral Trout hat came up off a shallow reef during a stick-bait session. Using smaller stickbaits like the Ocea Pencils or the Dorado Slider are great for coral trout, small grouper and blue fin trevally. We also get the occasional brute GT in really slim water and then all hell breaks loose. Another small stickbait caught GT.   Alexander this time with a GT caught on popper....
