Upgrade Bruce

Bruce and group fished the 3rd week of January with us, we had some mixed fishing during the week with small tides, however once the tides and currents picked up the fishing came on.

A nice GT for Bruce


Sharked on Jig, an otherwise very nice size Emperor

If the rat GT’s are around you have non stop action, however you have no idea when Great Grandpa is going to have a go so be prepared!!


One of the few doggies we landed this week, we had 3 unstoppable in shallow water in 50-60kg range


Multiple hook ups when the action is on

Even lady anglers having fun with GT’s




The variety of fish you get fishing with us in a week is what makes the place special.

Three's Company....

We've just finished fishing for a week with Pierre Rochon, Eric Belmondo and Johan Chopin who visited us to throw some poppers at the GT we have swimming here in the Andaman Sea. We had a great time fishing with them and hope to see them again next season.

Pierre with his biggest GT of the trip. This fish went for a jig dropped in a channel between two islands that sees some strong currents and also masses of bait passing through. It's an area we pass almost everyday while out fishing but has some awesome structure that holds fish right through the season. We're looking forward to exploring more of this channel and finding some great jigging close to Port Blair.

Eric with a nice popper caught GT!

Red Bass are another species that thrive in our waters and readily take poppers and jigs.

Above.... victims of one too many a GT!

Eric with a nice African Pompano that was the last fish caught on a day we ended with a jigging session before heading back to Port Blair. A great looking fish to photograph in the evening light.

Pierre with the largest rock landed this season! We decided to release it and not take it back to the Guest-house for dinner :-)

More fish by Pierre.

Eric with a nice GT caught on popper with his Ripple Fisher Fantastik.

More fish caught by Eric and Johan who had a great time while the bite was on and fish were after top-water lures.

Johan with another nice GT caught on the trip.

Eric ended the trip with a great one drop one fish jigging session. We're preparing for the next big group to arrive soon. Watch this space for some great action to come soon.
