Last week, we had a small party of three lucky Danes in BCs sturgeon heaven. The Fraser River was generous as always, and Jan Larsen, Johnny Hansen and Rene Nielsen landed 50 of the powerful leviathans, the six biggest passing the two meter mark! The biggest sturgeon was a monster of 251 cm for Jan Larsen. Well done, guys!Image attachmentImage attachment

Carsten Faber and friends are in the middle of their week long trip to BCs Fraser River for monster sturgeon.
As always, our partners in BC are giving them great value for money – our six anglers have already landed seven sturgeon of more than 2 meters (with a couple of those passing the 2,5 m mark!) – and theres still plenty of time left.

Panama's Tuna Coast has always been great for diversity – but due to the growing trend of slow jigging, we now catch more different species here than ever before!

Lodge owner Pierre Demague is at the forefront of the slow jigging revolution, as made perfectly clear with these great catches.

It only took him by him, together with former lodge owner Pascal Artieda, two days of jigging to catch these fish; imagine what you can do in a week!

We have a few open spots on our group trips in October and November so feel free to join the fun.

P. S. Yes, they hook really big fish on slow jigging too – but in this case the six biggest ones broke them off!

Traditionally, we don’t have many guests in Panama during the summer. Most people probably have summer holidays with the family on their mind – but those that hasn’t should consider a trip to the legendary Tuna Coast. Because the fishing – as proved by the two Swedes Zet Alonso and Johan Staaf – can be GREAT!

It was the first time Zet and Johan tried popping and jigging but they tore the place apart, like seasoned pros. Like a great Swedish smorgasbord, they were served everything from rooster and jack to dorado, trevally, snapper, shark, Spanish mackerel and the mean cubera snapper, mostly caught on topwater providing great action. They even landed a sailfish – and while jigging hooked into something that turned out to be a 500 lbs+ marlin, that went airborne and threw the jig on the first jump!

So in case you want to do something really special next summer, have in mind the Tuna Coast might be on fire. And if autumn or winter is a better time to getaway, then remember we have a few openings left this year and early next year.

A TRUE SALTWATER ADVENTURE

We are soon to embark on our Sixth season in the Laccadives, also known as Lakshadweep – a small group of islands off the west coast of India that until 9 or 10 years ago was off limits to tourists. Out here most things are still happening in some sort of a time bubble. We are fishing from local wooden boats and sleeping under open skies when fishing the most remote areas. Who cares as long as Yves and his guides again and again are finding the most incredible fishing for us?  
 
The Laccadives might not be for all – but for those not afraid of some seriously simple living, a true saltwater adventure is waiting! No wonder that these trips are sold out a long time in advance.
 
Sold out until February 19, 2018: 
1 open spot – February 19-March 3, 2018 (8 days fishing)
6 open spots – March 5-15, 2018
6 open spots – March 20-29, 2018

The Andaman Islands is our most recent destination. This destination has a long standing reputation of being one of Asia’s most prolific fishing grounds, but only recently did we find a local partner that could meet our expectations.
 
Though offering an unbelievable variety and number of fish, there’s still a chance to hook up with a monster 100-pound GT and sizeable dog tooth tunas are caught frequently.  
 
The price tag of this fishing is very attractive – around €3100 for a package of 7 fishing days and full board. Keep in mind, that you’re fishing from a top notch 41-footer with 500HP. Could this be the reason, that most of the upcoming season is already fully booked?

The cubera snapper is simply one of the meanest, coolest, hardest, greatest and strongest fish you can catch on surface lures!

Some good looking models there, with and without fins! Remember the day you, Thomas Söbirk, caught like three huge cuberas, on film, before I even got my first strike... Still love the shot where just the head is out of the water of the one caught at Los Frailes. The boatside strike of that fish was epic! Soon time to get back to Panama

Nothing can compare with a big, angry cubera snapper crushing your popper and heading for the bottom. It is hook-and-hold in its purest form!
And for big angry cuberas we dont know a better location than Panamas Tuna Coast. This beast was caught (and released) with capt. Chico last week.
Yep, we still have a few spots left for late 2017 – but only a few...Image attachment

German Team BÄÄÄM was back on the Tuna Coast of Panama last week and, as always, they caught plenty of fish! The week was typical of what you would expect from March: breezy conditions and not a cloud in sight. Some boats got more luck, but overall there was plenty of action for everyone.

Let's start this report with three unusual catches: A big sailfish that blasted a popper in 30 meters of water, an Indo-Pacific permit caught on a jig and a nice corvina that fell for a stickbait. Unfortunately, the sailfish wrapped itself many times around the line and was in a pretty bad shape when landed. It did swim away on the release though, so let's hope it'll be ok.

These fish are quite plentiful in our waters but they remain unusual catches because we don't really target them and use the appropriate techniques. But hey, if a sailfish decides to show up inshore and hit a popper, it certainly makes a beautiful an unexpected catch!

Small roosterfish were all over the place with a final count north of 70, all caught on poppers or stickbaits. One boat got 27 in a couple of hours. We shouldn’t set the wrong expectations for those considering a trip with us; this is unusually high number and all these were smaller sized fish. Nevertheless, they were still roosters – a beautiful hard fighting fish at any size!

The silk snappers were also very playful. One day in particular each of the three boats got 20 or more fish before moving away from the spot. When the snappers are in a feeding mood, double and triple hookups on each drift is a given! BÄÄÄM!

Unfortunately, there was a remarkable absence of big fish. Fish of the week was a beautiful rooster caught by our friend Joern. Very few other big fish were seen that week. Sometimes you can't have it all.

FISHING IS ON AGAIN IN THE LACCADIVES

Before we continue with a report from our latest trip from the Laccadives, the group finishing their fishing just days before the unexpected ban on sport fishing from the Indian authorities, we should share the good news:

Fortunately, our friend and partner Yves Fraissaix has been given permission to finish the rest of his season in the Laccadives. While these lines are being written Yves is already back on the water, fishing with a group of lucky anglers.

Here is Robert Balkow’s report from last month:

– This time we went straight to Bitra for two days and continued fishing the remote atolls for the rest of the trip. Every night we slept nights on the boats.

Our boat averaged 25-35 GTs per day with more than 200 GTs in total! The best day was 58 GTs in our boat alone!
The other boat also did great, catching somewhere between 100 and 120 GTs for the week. The whole group had four GTs of 30 kilos+ with the two biggest ones closer to 40 kilos.

Surprisingly, we also had a lot of contacts with yellowfin tunas. We never saw them hunting but while popping the deep edges we had contacts nearly every day. All of them were nice sized fish up to 25-30 kilos. On the last day we hit the jackpot and I caught my only yellowfin for the trip (after loosing all my hooked tunas on the previous days). Since we couldn’t release it we put it on the scales more than five hours later at Agatti: a tiny bit over 65 kilos! It was probably more than 70 kilos when we caught it.

The biggest dogtooth tunas we caught were around 10 kilos. Some caught jigging, some on topwater. Unfortunately, we got reefed by a very big doggie that smashed the popper in 50 meters of water and then tore line from a heavily dragged Stella 18k - it was simply unstoppable!

During the last day, the other boat had their lunch break interrupted when a school of yellowfins showed up right under their boat during – and while doing a bit of jigging they caught a sailfish of 256 cm. They had some other contacts with sailfish on poppers we saw also several free jumping fish that day.

All in all a great trip, we’re already planning the next trip back to this paradise. As always, Yves and the crew did a great job!

During last day, actually the last 15 minutes of the trip the dream became true. Laurens Andeweg from Holland was the lucky guy when we spent our last minutes, trying to catch a marlin. A big black marlin took of with the cona-head trolling lure in a fast run. The spool became quickly very hot and suddenly all the line was gone. The captain made a quick turn with the boat but then then line was almost out. We could see the bottom of the spool when the fish suddenly went airbourne and the hook fell out.. 

We thought it was over but after trolling just 4 minutes the same scenario took place again. The same rod, same lure and a new big, black marlin running of with all the line. This time, the line was all out before we could turn the boat and at the time when we got the boat around, the line was all streched out, down to the knot and everybody just kept their fingers crossed for the line to hold. 

Like from above, the fish stopped and we could win back a few meter and the fight was on for sure. Laurens did an excellent job fighting this fish and after 40 minutes we could finally grab the spear of the big fish around 500 lbs! What a way to finish the second group trip in Panama!Image attachment

BAN ON FISHING IN THE LACCADIVES (LAKSHADWEEP)!

We had just finished a truly great week in the Laccadives – maybe the best one ever – with GTs up to around 40 kilos, yellowfin tunas op to 70 kilos, and a crazy 58 GTs caught in one day from one boat!

The next group were ready for an equally great adventure with our friend and partner Yves Fraissaix…and then disaster struck!

Our group arrived on the island of Bangaram as planned, and that very same evening the authorities cancelled their fishing permits and effectively put an end to all sport fishing in the Laccadives (also known as Lakshadweep) – from one day to the other! No fishing permission was to be given and our group of six very, very unlucky and disappointed anglers had go back to Cochin.

In more than fifteen years of arranging fishing trips all over the world we have never experienced anything like it. Had we done anything wrong? No. We have been doing trips with Yves to the Laccadives since 2012 and never had a problem with fishing permits. So why did it happen now?

Lakshadweep is a very special place, with lots of Indian bureaucracy, red tape and strict rules. We have always been aware of this and respected the rules; in our movie “Popping the Laccadives” from 2012 we mention why we are spending the night in open boats in a big lagoon while fishing the outer atolls – simply because it was, and still is, totally forbidden for foreigners to set foot on the outer islands.

This season have seen another tour operator setting up in the Laccadives, telling the world how they suddenly have discovered this new destination and how they are exploring the “world class fly fishing for GTs”. Well, they might just have discovered these wonderful islands and they might think that the fly fishing is world class. Fair enough. There is plenty of room for another operator, right? Yes – if only they would play by the rules!

The new operation has been posting some wonderful shots of shore caught GTs, hyping the fly fishing and the shore fishing. Problem is, by doing so they have constantly been breaking the rules that Yves and our clients has been respecting for years: They are advertising fishing from islands that foreigners are not even supposed to set foot on! They are bringing a mothership into areas of the Laccadives that the mothership has no permission to enter. When Yves recently called their owner to tell him that their constant violation of rules might have serious consequences he showed no understanding of the situation and didn't seem to care.

Well, we will tell you who cares: The locals on these islands have felt so frustrated and intimidated that they have passed on mobile phone pictures of trespassing fly anglers to the authorities, along with a demand for an immediate ban on fishing.

Exactly what will happen from here on isn’t 100% clear yet. Earlier today, Yves had a meeting with the administrator of Lakshadweep. The administration has now understood that there are two different sport fishing operations, operating in two very different ways. They assured Yves that he will be given the necessary permits to finish his season. They have also told him that the other operation will no longer be allowed to fish in the Laccadives/Lakshadweep.

We will hopefully know more in the near future.

Hopefully Yves gets his permission back. He totally stick to the rules when we visited last year!

Inget jag vill ha på kroken😱

NO OPPOSING COMMENTS ALLOWED ON THIS PAGE, or what? What I wrote a few hours was deleted: The statement of Thomas Sobirk above is full of bullshit! The accusations about this “other organizer” has very little to do with the reality. I spent a week with “the other organizer”, and can only say they followed the regulations extremely cautiously and diligently. Every morning, permissions for the day were checked with the authorities, which during the day was followed stringently. India is a country of its own with a long “tradition” for authority officials and their representatives using regulations for their own benefits, often causing business issues based on made up problems. I do have first-hand experience about it from my own profession. It’s sad, but something we have to walk around together without causing problems for our fellow actors in the trade. I and all other anglers would appreciate if you could work to improve your own offering instead of spreading false accusations about a competitor.

Wow... Super Big..

Our nights at the mothership was filled with great moment, not just with fish but also with beautiful surroundings and stunning moments at dusk and dawn! While staying at the mothership we couldn't resist dropping a bloddy piece of bonito down to the bottom to see what was lurking down there and guess what!? The water below was filled with big nurse sharks and rays! Within two hours we caught 8 big sharks up to 150 kg, 4 rays and lost a few ones during the battle aswell.

Great fun with jigging rods and small conventional reels after a long day of fishing!

We were not only fishing offshore in Panama, even if the tunas always were on our mind. Inshore, especially around Coiba where the mothership was moored, the action was on. Many roosterfish were caught in the boats, several ones up to 30-40 lbs and also a few cuberas, both on the popper but mainly on livebait!

While jigging, amberjacks, rainbow runners and as shown on one of the pictures, a pink salmon was caught! Great fun in beautiful surroundings!

During the second week in Panama, the tunas were feeding like crazy on the second and the third day! Hundreds of dolphins and diving birds was our help out there and when we found them, we found them good.

We also experienced a "bait-ball" where enourmous amount of tunas gathered and made a feast out of a big shoals of sardins, the water was shining of scales after a few minutes when the baitfish was all out....

Lots of fish in the range between 20-45 kg was caught on poppers and stickbait but unfortunately we lost the really big fish.. The biggest fish was estimated around 100 kg, took a popper in the surface and made a long run towards the depth.. Down there the fish was just to heavy to lift and the fight lasted around 15 minutes with brutal pain in both my lower back and forearm, we actually changed the rod to another angler during the fight but before we good gain any line and notice any sign of tuna giving up, the hook just fell out for know reason.. SHIT, but hey! That's fishing!

First day of fishing is over and the action was on! Inshore around Coiba was great, with lot at active jacks, cuberas and roosters on both livebait, stickbaits and poppers. On the offshore banks the marlins was hungry, one boat hooked up with two but lost unfortunately both during the fight.. A sailfish, a dorado and big amount of jacks, snappers and few other fish was also caught out there. ... See MoreSee Less

The last day of fishing on the first week is over.. The teams split up, a few going inshore with beautiful roosters, angry cuberas and strong fighting jacks on both live-bait and popping.

The three teams that went offshore spent most of the day chasing the dolphins and birds to get a shot at the big shoals of tunas below. I must say we were a bit unlucky but a couple was landed with the biggest one around 60 lbs. We could have been much more happy if we would have landed the two big ones that was lost during the fight, one estimated around 150 lbs which was lost boatside..

On the other hand, the sailfish was on the bite and with one landed and one lost in a big jump, close to the boat we must say that the offshore fishing at the moment is smoking hot here in Panama!

Let's hope the tunas stick around for a while, so the next group can get a shot of catching these powerful torpedos aswell!

Roosterparty at Coiba!

During the forth day, three boats went inshore during most time of the day and had great action for rooster, especially trolling live-baits but also a couple of fish that was caught on poppers.

The beaches, rocks and reefs was also raided by angry jacks and a few toothy critters like the famous cubera.

On the offshore banks, the fishing was good as always with two marlins caught which makes it a total a 7 marlin during the week so far. That is be far the most amount of marlin we have had during 4 days of fishing before.

Now we are heading out for the last day of fishing and hoping for some spectacular experiences

We have now passed mid-week and the action has picked up, especially offshore where all boats except one has caught billfish.. Several marlins between 3-400 lbs, a handfull sailfish and a few dorados has been caught so far! We can't complain about that at all.. :)

Inshore we have caught both roosters, cuberas, jacks, sharks and many more species on jigging, livebait and poppers! During sunset on the second day we hade great action close to the mothership which you can see on the pictures below! On the mothership, we was of course fishing while enjoying snacks and drinks and got interuped by both rays and jacks during the evening and early morning.

The first day in Panama started with a blast for a couple of our boat teams. One boat got 2 marlins and lost two more in a double strike and two other boats scored sailfish and dorados! Right now they are enjoying the evening at the mothership but I will try to get some pictures later on. Tomorrow we hope for good action inshore with both cuberas and roosters! ... See MoreSee Less

World Premiere: Ascension Island popping and jigging – special introductory offer – get a free day of fishing!

GetAway Sea Angling are now introducing a destination that we have dreamt about for the last ten years or more. This is something else. As in really something else.
Now, the wait is over. The boat of our dreams has arrived on Ascension. Let’s go fishing!

Ascension Island is a marine sanctuary mainly protected from commercial fishing by this isolated volcanic island’s location in the middle of the South Atlantic Ocean – and backed up by a ban on commercial fishing 50 nautical miles around the island. Recently, a marine reserve – the largest in the Atlantic and almost the size of the United Kingdom – has been created restricting the area’s offshore fishery even further.

The waters around Ascension Island hold what is possibly the most abundant fish stocks found anywhere in the world. Our friends Johan Mikkelsen and Hannes Ribner has just returned from a months long stay on the island. Their results are truly mind blowing:

Amberjacks of 15-25 kilos on top water lures, double hook ups from yellowfin tunas in the 100 kilo+ range, wahoo from 15-30 kilos and black trevallies and horse eye jacks up to 15 kilos on top water. And the jigging? Well, you don't even want to hear about the jigging. At least not more than this: 100-fish days is not a problem on jigging!

Open for bookings now!
We start the season in early June and finish on December 5. After a Christmas break we will start again in January 2018.

We've just had a talk with our great friend Yves today; the fishing in the Laccadives had been a blast this year. More yellowfin tunas than ever before and big GTs. And lots of other stuff. Here's a few pictures from last week – great fishing in great weather!

Our winter season sold out a long time ago. We have one spot left in November 2017 and a few in January-February 2018.

Popper School Report

From our great friend Jonas Holmsgård we just received a report from our latest Popper School in the Maldives. Jonas writes:

We had a great week in the Maldives, even if we had a few days with rainy weather. That just seemed to make the fishing hotter. The number of GTs weren’t as high as usual – but all students landed the sought after GT, some even landed quite a lot!

Danish participant Robin Hoffmann even succeeded in catching two dogtooth tunas on stickbaits before landing his first GT. After ten years of popper fishing – only God and my bank knows how many trips all over the world – I still haven’t succeeded in catching one myself. In fact, I’ll have to admit the Popper Teacher was a bit jealous for a minute or two…

Actually, we saw lots of doggies all week. They often followed our lures all the way to the boat without hitting them. They left the hitting part to other reef species such as groupers, snappers, Bluefin trevallies and sharks up to some 20 to 25 kilos.

For me, it was also a first in the Maldives when we found dorados over deeper water, hitting our lures willingly and jumping all over the place. The dorados had company from yellowfin tunas and wahoo – the razor sharp teeth of the latter costing us many lures and a cut up landing net. (We got our revenge when a couple of them ended on the barbeque the same evening).

The biggest GT of the week – estimated at around 30 kilos – was caught by Swedish popper student Magnus Ferdinandson. Fellow student Hans Bäckström managed a yellowfin tuna of more or less the same size.

I’d like to thank the my “students” – a truly fantastic group that learned fast and took to it all with an open mind. It was like traveling with old friends. Thank you Magnus Ferdinandsson
Anders Henriksson, Ulf Nilrud, Hans Bäckström and Robin Hoffmann!
