Zeynul and Friends In the Andamans

Zeyn, an avid angler who has been bitten by the GT fishing bug, was instrumental in putting the trip together for this group of friends from South Africa and his nephew Mohammad had been roped in as well. Riaz came in a day earlier from Dubai and while chatting with him he explained his lineage from Gujarat, India three generations earlier. Work had got the better of him over the previous couple of years and hence he’d shifted to Dubai and wasn’t able to fish as often as he wanted to. “Captain” Zeyn on the other hand made up for the rest of them while Rashaad confessed he was happy with his limited fishing. We were glad to see they had equipped themselves with exactly what the doctor had prescribed for these brute Geets in the Andamans. After an early breakfast and a short walk down to the boats, a new fishing chapter in their lives was unfolding. With south-westerly winds and rain expected for the first 4 days, we knew we would need to fish a bit differently this trip. The guys took the conditions well. They were not put off with a bit of wind and rain and this showed in their catches at the end of the trip. Apart from the fishing, the sheer beauty of these islands never ceases to amaze every angler who visits the Andaman Islands. Popping was going to be the main focus and with many hours gained with the experience in Oman where they had all fished before, these men knew the drill. Zeyn was referred to as “Captain” by his...
Our First Single Angler Trip for the Season

Our First Single Angler Trip for the Season

Our guest from France came in to take over from where our first group for the season left off. A passionate fisherman and a true gentleman, Bertrand arrived a day earlier than his initial schedule so that he could get in an extra day fishing for GT. He turned out to be a good friend of Eric LeGuyader of Orion Lures, a world-famous fisherman whom we have fished with twice before. His first evening in Port Blair was spent exchanging notes with our other guests and setting up his Shimano Caranx Travel rods. He intended on targeting big GT and chose to fish mainly with stickbaits, his lure of choice the Orion Plug Tropic. His first day saw him decide in the morning to go out for a half day fishing. We got his permit by late morning and headed out north. The GT weren’t too interested in his stickbaits and the fishing was a bit slow. He wasn’t too disappointed though and was eager to see what awaited him the next day. Darran was on board and the duo had a better second day fishing, with a decent 28 kilo GT among the fish landed and a 20 kilo GT that had survived a shark attack with a chunk taken out of its back. The good news is that it was almost healed and we released the survivor to fight again another day. We also managed to get a nice pic of Bertrand with a Spanish Mackerel that believed it could fly! After bringing two travel rods with him, it didn’t take our Andaman GT too long to...
Season 2017-18 underway with a 50 kilo “Big Mama”

Season 2017-18 underway with a 50 kilo “Big Mama”

Robert had made his booking with us last September and had his regular mates from down under fishing with him. The team comprised of Robert Sader, Frank Reaiche and Richard Terzian, of whom only Richard had done some GT popping in Fiji. The guys were eager to get out but had done the wise thing and kept a day on either side of the fishing days to recuperate after the flight in. With the new fishing rules in place ,we were the first operator to get the permits and we are happy to say that the new permit system is a lot easier. We spent their first day setting up their tackle and sharing knowledge on the best knots as well as giving the guys some advice on their setups and lure selections. We planned for a 6:30 am start on day one with the plan being to get the guys used to the boat and the conditions and hopefully get in some action as well, which is just what the guys managed to do with a number of smaller GT’s, Dogtooth and the usual misses that normally happen on day 1. The guys also tried out some light jigging with Gomoku rods and had some fun with smaller fish; of course, there were the usual larger fish that jumped on and annihilated the small jigs. Day two and we moved to different area. The southwest monsoon has not fully ended yet so we have to fish completely differently from normal. The guys had a quiet morning session with the few odd bites off and on. Post lunch and...
