Fishing Eventur with Matt

Pictures from a fantastic trip we had fishing with our agency from Poland, Eventur. The main aim of the team was to catch GT on popper and try catch as many fish as they could on surface lures. Conditions were great during the trip but we did have the weather pick up during our trip. Once the weather settled again the fish were on the feed and we had some spectacular results. For most fishermen it was a first time GT popping trip and they were amazed at how hard these fish pulled. Above a couple of the largest GT we caught on the trip on popper. Thankfully these fish were stopped before they could nead down into the reef and bust the Pe.8 we were using. It was a week when the Dog Tooth Tuna were also up on the surface and were taking poppers and stick-baits. However poppers out fished stick-baits this week when it came to the Dog Tooth Tuna. Brighter colours seemed to work better as well. Working the shallows was always an interesting time as we had many a coral trout and grouper. The red bass were also not so far behind. A double hookup out of the same bait-school. Turtle rescue! Every now and again we come across a bit of floating net that has a poor turtle entangled in it. This young turtle was cut free and released. Thankfully it was in pretty good shape. Grouper on stick-bait. More surface caught Dog Tooth Tuna. We’ve got the group visiting us again next year and we are sure of a great week of...
Jason and Nick in round 2 at Trincomalee

Jason and Nick in round 2 at Trincomalee

Our friends from Singapore Jason and Nick had organized another group to come and fish Trincomalee with us and to say the least it was a good trip which slowed down towards the last day when the wind really picked up but in-between we had some unbelievable fishing with an estimated 30 kg plus GT landed on jig on a genuine PE 2 setup with 50 lb leader and the usual suspects, of hook pulls, bust offs and and no hook up!! All in all a very interesting week with some of the guys again breaking their personal bests’…. again!!! Mark with a nice specimen one of the first of many GT’s landed on this trip A rare model GT for Mark with dorsal fin missing possible from being attacked when younger, none for the worse and as tenacious as ever, safely released to fight again another day. Nick with a very nice GT his first of the trip which topped the tape at 134 cm and a PB Anothe side on view of the GT Tan Lee with his first popper caught GT in Trincomalee Nick with another GT model around the 28 kg mark Sam putting the pressure on a nice GT And here is the result and absolute slab of GT With the popper action action tapering off with the increasing winds we decided to try jigging on one of the boats and had some amazing sessions with one session producing 21 GT’s on the boat not counting missed one or other species the tally for the day was and incredible 47 strikes and one fabled...
Sri Lanka a PE 10 Destination for sure

Sri Lanka a PE 10 Destination for sure

What we have now reconfirmed is that it is a destination for big fish, our initial exploration trips showed numerous 40 to 50 kg GT’s and the season opened with many big GT’s being caught including the monster 163 cm fish that is one of the largest GT ever landed. There is a genuine chance here to land a 50 kg fish every week here and you just cannot come unprepared. Gamefishing Asia has just completed our first full season in Sri Lanka and we have operated in the South and East of the Island nation and it has been an exhilarating experience, along with a learning curve where we have had to test our knowledge and put our fishing experience to good use. We had a lot of customers this season who chose to fish lighter line classes but this just did not work, instantaneous bust offs are the order of the day, the same goes with using lighter and smaller hooks like the ST 66, this is pointless if you are chasing big fish, yes you can land a fish now and again on ST 66 hooks but not regularly and also remember big GT’s are apex predators who are smart, to say again once they miss or get off the hook they will not be back too soon. Next season we will be enforcing only Barbless hooks which are safer for both the anglers around you and well as enabling the GT to survive better if it busts off. Like all the big fish destinations we have it all here, deep drop offs close by, oceanic...
