After a very long flight, Gilles and Fabien went out on Kirinda waters for their first time, targeting the very sought after Giant Trevally – GT that these waters are known for.
With a few rainy days before their arrival, the rain stayed and the storm clouds brewed, giving them 6 bites during the day with 1 landed fish in the boat.
Second day arrived and both anglers had been able to rest well during the night. The day greeted them with a bright sun and flat conditions.
In the good weather, they decided to go out and try jigging with beautiful Amber Jack as the result.
The afternoon carried on with popping in the hot weather, resulting in 3 landed GT for 11 bites.
Going out on the third day, once again the weather was very good and looking back on the previous day’s results the two anglers decided on popping all day.
This turned out to be a great choice as their Shimano Stella reels, kept screaming all through the day with 13 GT landed and a total of 26 bites through the day with the biggest one weighing in at 25kg.
The week carried on with about the same activity as the days before with sunny conditions and a flat sea, and top fish of 18 kg but also a nice size King Mackerel, also that one of around 18kg.
The last day arrived for the two French anglers, who were still hoping for a fish over 30 kg. As if on cue, the day started with great activity. Missing 4 big brutes on the surface they managed to land their 30kg fish. The day ended with a total of 29 bites and 8 landed fish.
