Alfie, Adam, Sali & Sharil

The middle of November saw us fishing with Alfie, Adam, Sali and Sharil from Singapore, the guys had planned their trip over a year in advance and had high expectations after hearing about the GT’s on top-water in the Andaman Islands from other anglers in Singapore. Fully kitted out with an array of Carpenter rods an assortment of Shimano Stellas, the guys were eager to be on the water and into the action. We have had some unsettled weather with the onset of the northeast monsoon, but the forecast looked good enough for us to get out. It was windy but as GTs normally like the wind there was good action both on popper and on jig, with Alfie landing a nice fish close of 30 kg on the jig just before we called it a day. His custom jigging rod snapped shortly after he set the hook so it was good we were headed back after the fish was hand lined in. The wind picked up the next day so we fished the leeside. The action had slowed down probably because of the pressure drop but the group still managed another 30kg GT on top-water, keeping the motivation up. The weather then eased up for the last 2 days allowing us to push to some of our new spots, plus the group had the bigger boat Rampage so it was more comfortable for four anglers. We headed out to one of our jigging spots around the 100 meter mark and immediately got stuck into a large school of Yellowfin tuna all of the schooling size. There was nonstop...
Assad’s Group & Danny

Assad’s Group & Danny

Assad and two of his friends from Israel were joined by Danny from the U.K. to form a group of four anglers, fishing in Kirinda, Sri Lanka in November 2015. The guys faced a variety of weather and sea conditions on their trip ranging from totally calm flat and hot conditions to howling winds and big seas. The strong winds we had on most of the days meant jigging was made very difficult so we only managed one session on the deeper reefs where we landed yellow dot Trevally, Grouper and a few Bluefin Trevally. We had monster fish smash the lures almost every day of the trip including the biggest hit I have seen so far in my time in Sri Lanka but we only managed to convert two of them. Hamad took the biggest fish with a beaut in 30 to 35 kilo range and Assad with a 25 to 30 kilo fish. Lures that stood out were the Hammer Head E and G cup and the Hammerhead Shakure. The Daiwa Saltiga Stickbait also produced multiple species with the Spanish Mackerel in particular taking a liking to it....
SANSUI GT Fishing Party

SANSUI GT Fishing Party

We received 5 Japanese buddies: Hidetaka, Yutaka, Sakurai, Masato and Yuichiro for 3 days GT fishing in Kirinda, Sri Lanka. Hidetaka works for one of the famous tackle shop chains in Japan: Sansui and had come with some excellent Japanese tackle. The first day’s weather was perfect: calm sea, sunny, light breeze and the water colour was blue. When we arrived close to the reef, we saw some birds and bonito jumping everywhere. On the first drift a sailfish followed the lures and came close to the boat but didn’t bite. On the reef there were lots of schools of bait but the predators were lurking further afield at the limit of the drop off. Most of the GT’s were small (around 10-15 kg) but gave some action during the day. The biggest fish was caught by Sakurai a decent 20 kg+ GT. That day the lure that got the most bites was the Yambal GT Harrier in Fusilier colour. Yutaka had brought along a light jigging rod with him for when he was tired of casting for big GT. The next two days brought a change of weather condition with cloud and a strong west wind (quite unexpected and very unusual at this time of year). Personally, I like wind in Kirinda, it makes the fishing a little bit technical but choppy seas make the GT more aggressive and big ones were coming to the top of the reef to chase poppers. In these sea condition it’s best to use poppers that make a strong pop, like the Hammer Head G-Cup. Once again it was Sakurai with a...
Chris, Victor & Shayne

Chris, Victor & Shayne

Chris and Victor returned to fish with us again in Port Blair along with their buddy Shayne to form the group. The last time Chris was here he just missed out on his top water Dogtooth Tuna and this was once again top of his bucket list. The guys have all landed huge GTs in Southern Oman but enjoy the species, variety and the action that the Andaman Islands offer along with quality fish. Being veterans the guys knew exactly what tackle to bring and this was quickly rigged up with the excitement growing as we discussed tactics and the planned for the week. The plan was made to fish further if the weather gave us the window of opportunity, and it did. This trip saw us fishing spots different from our regular places and changing tactics to target quality fish. The trip had all the highs and lows of a fishing trip to remember with some insane fishing sessions and some heartbreaks as well, here goes: Chris got his top water dogtooth as the first fish of day 3 We had a number of triple hook ups to keep the guys happy Shane had 3 new species on top water Chris was the undisputed master of landing red bass he got 7 on this trip and fair sized ones too Victor on one incredible jigging drift made the OBX 300 jigging rod contort but it lasted to land a very good GT Chris lost 6 (expensive) lures and was very unlucky with hook pulls and line breaks on some really nice fish. We had a great time fishing...
Single Anglers: Ian, Bas, Mikko & Essa

Single Anglers: Ian, Bas, Mikko & Essa

For our second single angler group of the season we had Ian, Bas, Mikko and Essa join us in Kirinda. It was the first popping trip for everyone involved and expectations were high. What they didn’t expect was the amount of work involved in Popping and Jigging! We had beautiful weather for most of the trip with sunny skies and flat seas but conditions were on the tough side for fishing the water. Visibility had deteriorated after some heavy rain fall and the lack of wind and current made for some long hot drifts, but the banter and jokes kept the boys going and they toughed it out and had some great results. 123► Ian was first on the board with a grouper taken in the shallows around the light house and later on managed a small GT. From there on out things steadily improved as the guys got to grips with the tackle and working the lures. As the casts got longer and the pops bigger more fish started coming to the boat. We hit the jigging spots as well to get the full experience & after a slow start Bas managed a great GT which gave him a nice work out and Ian landed the biggest Spanish Mackerel of the trip. I lost count of the amount of Jigs the razor blade gang made off with but on the bright side the guys didn’t have to cart too much weight home! The ever present Coral Trout were also in abundance and Mikko landed too many different types on the ultra-light jigging gear to keep track of. 123►...
