Fishing

From Port Blair we are able to access the spectacular fishing between the Middle and Little Andaman Islands. These areas are upto 35nm away and are difficult to access without a fast boat. Cinque, Passage, Sister and Brother Islands along with their surrounding reef systems and tides make them a fishing paradise.

Reason for the spectacular fishing in these waters

is due to the rich and diverse ecosystem, which provides huge amounts of nutrients and a rich supply of baitfish to keep the food chain going along with the fact that there is no commercial fishing along the reef systems.

About Fishing

The Andaman Islands is the place where dreams are made. Crystal clear water and an average year round temperature of 30 degrees provide a perfect combination for some of the best extreme tropical fishing in the world. With 374 islands, surrounded by reef systems, drop offs, sea mounts and deep blue water there are plenty of choices to target monster fish.

Target Species

The main target species include Giant Trevally, Dog Tooth Tuna, Marlin, Rusty Job Fish, Yellow Fin Tuna, Amber Jack, Great Barracuda, Groupers,a Sail Fish and King Mackerel. These can be caught popping, jigging or trolling.

Recommended Equipment/gears

Popping

Recommended popping set ups include PE10/12 popping rods paired with a 18000/20000 size reel, a 7’6” length rod for extreme fishing power, 100-120lb braid as main line.

Also, we need a 150lb leader tied with an FG knot the last 20cm of which should be twisted and crimped, 220lb terminal tackle, 100-200 gram poppers , stick baits, Owner 4/0 and 5/0 ST-76 hooks or similar, but the barbs must be crushed.

The brighter lures do very well on the reefs, and natural colors work better in deeper water.

Jigging

Recommended popping set ups include PE10/12 popping rods paired with a 18000/20000 size reel, a 7’6” length rod for extreme fishing power, 100-120lb braid as main line.

A 3-5 meter fluorocarbon leader has to be tied with an FG knot coupled with 150lb terminal tackle, jigs in the 150-300 gram range, 300lb Kevlar assist cord and an Owner SJ-46 11/0 assist hook or a similar hook.

Adding a small Muppet to the hook has been proven to be a very effective method. Not only will you get more hits, but it also protects paint on the jig from the hook slapping against it.
