Darren, Rachel & Sam

It is not often that we get a call from a dive operation telling us they have clients who are interested in fishing with us. Some close friends who run a dive operation at the Southern tip of the South Andaman Island got in touch with us regarding a group they have who were very keen on fishing with us. It wasn’t long before Sam, Rachel and Darren walked in through the front door. They were on an extended holiday in the Andaman Islands and were sampling everything the islands had to offer. Sam, Rachel and Darren spent their first couple of weeks learning how to dive and qualifying as open water divers before joining us. They fished with us for three days before heading off again to explore some neighboring islands and returned to fish one last day before they left the Andaman Islands. On the first day we fished off the first island heading South as there are some well sheltered reefs that are fish magnets. Once the currents were ripping we began to see a lot more activity and there were GT on the prowl looking for their meal. Darren cast his popper onto a likely bit of water and his popper was taken in a huge splash of water. Since it was their first trip GT fishing and Darren had no idea how hard these fish hit, he was pulled to the front of the boat and almost flew off it. Anxious seconds later, he managed to regain his footing and set about the tough job of winching one of these incredible fish in. Not...
Dog Tooth Tuna Tactics

Dog Tooth Tuna Tactics

It’s every anglers dream to one day travel to the tropics to try and catch some of the hard fighting species that abound in these waters. Tropical seas have many fish that won’t hesitate to come up to the surface and smash a large lure. All anglers have their favorite species. The Giant Trevally or GT as they’re commonly known once caught and released quickly gain their place at the top of most anglers’ lists of fish to catch and catch again. Another fish high up on the list is the Gymnosarda unicolor, commonly known as the White Tuna or the Dogtooth Tuna. However most anglers tangle with this fish while jigging. Dogtooth tuna are known to inhabit deep reefs, patrol drop offs, undersea walls and sea mounts. Naturally the most preferred method to fish them would be to jig for this species. A small minority of anglers fishing in the tropics get to experience catching Dogtooth tuna on surface lures. In fact there are only a few locations in the world where this is possible. The Andaman Islands are one of those locations where this is a real possibility as the islands are the exposed tops of submarine ridges of the Rakhine Mountains, the Patkai Range and the Mentawai Ridge. Close access to deep water and upwellings create a perfect area where these fish are found close to the surface. Over the past seasons of sport fishing here we’ve noticed more and more Dogtooth tuna being caught and released on top-water lures by our angling clients here in the Andaman Islands. Enough fish to enable us to see...

Alessandro Massari and Co – Kirinda – 07 to 12 December 2014

Alessandro is a friend and the maker of high quality handmade wooden fishing lures called Alles Lures. Check out his site here. He wanted to try out our Sri Lanka GT popping and jigging and had arranged most of the group. Along with him was Vania a cameraman to shoot video footage of the trip and Dutch fishermen Lesley and Mark who were out to sample GT for the first time and hoping to get personally acquainted with some big bad Caranx Ignoblis. The group had booked both boats, the fishermen on No Limit wanted to only pop for GT and the Rampageous wanted a mix of popping and jigging. Day 1: Conditions are perfect: sunny, light breeze and good blue water on the reef.  Rampageous started on a deep spot and with the heavy poppers going on the first drift there were 2 huge bites, both missed, then the action stopped till the tide started running again, then it resumed on both jig and popper, quite a few bites on jig and in the afternoon on popper, Lesley then got a serious bite on his GT Mania a popper not seen in use for a while now but an old favourite, and lands the first nice GT of the trip. Day 2: This day was unexplainable we had everything: right conditions, tide, current, lots of fish marking on the sounder but very little activity through the day for both the boats with highlight being a big Greater Barracuda of 25kg for Hrystian on jig that took off but then ran out of steam and a huge GT that came...

Mr Wang Group – Kirinda – 01 to 06 December 2014

Mr Wang from China returned for his third trip fishing with us chasing big GT’s in Kirinda. The group had some incredible action on their last trip over to Sri Lanka and were ready to go again. We started off by trying an area which we knew was holding fish and immediately went into some amazing action, an unbelievable 14 fish for 46 bites!! The guys missed 34 fish and some huge GT’s. Line breaks on the reef and hook pulls mostly were mostly to blame and this shows just how hard it is to land big fish, even on a great day. With so much GT action the guys wanted to mix up things a bit by trying some lighter tackle fishing. We didn’t need to go far as just few miles from shore we ran into a school of sardines being harassed by large Spanish Mackerel. Averaging 15-18 kg in weight, the bigger boys get up to 30 kg and over in these waters. They’re known for screaming runs and their ability to leap out of the water. We’ve nicknamed them the “Sri Lanka Tax” for their ability to bite off lures. Thing heated up from the second cast and we saw some intense action for about 30 minutes. On PE3 gear they scream off at unbelievable speed.   With the group having a lot of fun they decided to try light jigging for a full day in a few new potential hotspots. The decision was a good one and we had another great day fishing with many different species caught including GTs, Spanish Mackerel, various types...
Our first Single Angler Trip – Andaman Islands – 07 to 12 December 2014

Our first Single Angler Trip – Andaman Islands – 07 to 12 December 2014

Game Fishing Asia in the Andaman Islands has come a long way from when we started back in 2007. Over the years we’ve catered to a vast number of anglers from across the world. We primarily cater to larger groups of seasoned popper and jig fishermen but we’ve been receiving more and more enquiries from single and novice anglers who’d like to be part of a group of fishermen or would like us to form a group of them so they could share the costs with other like minded anglers and get a shot at fishing in one of the best locations in the world. Paying heed to a larger and larger number of these requests we decided to start promoting ‘single angler’ trips where we set aside dates that are exclusively meant for single anglers. We just ran our first single angler trip in the Andaman Islands with Chris and Willem. We take care to see that these are a good set of dates and do our best to see expectations are met keeping in mind the differing skill levels of the anglers taking part. We’ve got a report below from our first trip which was filled with action and of course many many fish.   Chris casting out over a shallow reef between two Islands. These reefs located to the east of Port Blair are a shallow set of reefs teeming with life and most importantly with bait schools. This area is a sure shot location for large numbers of GT that patrol the reefs.   Chris hooked up first on a GT that came up and...
