Single Angler Group in Trinco

With the start of the onset of the Southwest monsoon we’ve moved our operations to Sri Lanka’s North East Coast and started off the season in Trincomalee with a group of Single Anglers. Four guys from across the world landed at Colombo airport, all with previous GT fishing experience in their baggage. Kurt and Christiaan had both flown all the way from South Africa to spend 6 days Popping for GT in the Indian Ocean while Alexandre arrived from Hong Kong. Assad flew in from Israel and combined his travelling plans in Sri Lanka with a 4 day fishing trip. The wind was forecast to be quite strong but still fishable, and from experience, both Kirinda and Trincomalee work well in choppy conditions. Looking at previous records, we see that Trincomalee is a place where patience and perseverance pays off and although you might not see a frenzy of activity you are quite likely to catch a very big one…if you can hold on to it! As a warm up Kurt missed a bigger GT already on his first day as it tried to grab his popper on the top of a wave causing it to jump through the air while being tangled, instead of setting the hook. With the water color slightly less green the next morning the group decides to go jigging with great results. Kurt catches a beautifully colored grouper while soon after Assad manages to land a nice, silvery GT on his jig. The day continues with popping and shows a good result in the choppy conditions, landing 6 GT and among them a great...

Jigging in Trincomalee – Feb 2015

When our Italian Anglers arrived in Trincomalee, forecast and water conditions weren’t really ideal for a dream fishing trip… But one of the guys said to us: “Let’s see what happens on sea, the fish haven’t disappeared, we just have to find them!!” We like a positive attitude, it goes a long way in making the trip a pleasant experience for everyone. We started on our popping spots, but the water was really green and muddy, due to the last rainy days… very difficult conditions to manage GTs coming to the surface. This year’s rainfall has been off the record and an indication of changing weather patterns across the world. To keep the positive attitude going we think that this means next year conditions are going to be perfect! Simone had the only bite of the trip on popper and landed a decent 15 kg GT Rod: Hot’s Gipang Tide Lez GT77XH | Reel: Shimano Stella 18000 SW | Lure: Patriot Design Big Cup 170. Then the second day, we decided to try on our jigging spots and we found a big ball of bait and predators around. The trip which hadn’t got off to a great start was now getting much, much better. This was a trip for Jigging with good action and even a quadruple hook up!!! These are some of the beauties we caught: Malabar Trevally African Pompano Horse Eye Jack Some Yellow Fin Tuna And some nice GTs… The big GTs were caught with Rod: Maria Steady Jigging 70 | Reel: Shimano Stella 18000 SW | Jig: Maria Metal Flicker 200 g   And a special...
