Jason and Nick in round 2 at Trincomalee

Our friends from Singapore Jason and Nick had organized another group to come and fish Trincomalee with us and to say the least it was a good trip which slowed down towards the last day when the wind really picked up but in-between we had some unbelievable fishing with an estimated 30 kg plus GT landed on jig on a genuine PE 2 setup with 50 lb leader and the usual suspects, of hook pulls, bust offs and and no hook up!! All in all a very interesting week with some of the guys again breaking their personal bests’…. again!!!

Mark with a nice specimen one of the first of many GT’s landed on this trip
