TUNA FISHING IN OMAN – A DREAM DESTINATION!

I just returned from the most amazing destination: Great people, great accommodation, great boats, great weather, flat calm seas – and the fishing for yellow fin tunas was many times better than I had imagined in my wildest dreams!

Officially, I was holidaying with the family but I managed to go our for two days. The tunas were feeding on squid during these two days so they told me that the fishing was really slow...I never noticed!

Well, I guess they were right because our very first three guest are there right now.

On their first day Jakob, Christian and Michael landed 19 tunas – yes, that's nineteen YFT!

Yesterday was slow...until they suddenly found the craziest feeding frenzy late in the day, with tunas busting bait all over the place. They landed 9 fish with the three biggest between 45 and 55 kilos!

Man, Oman – we are so happy to be hooked up with our good friends from Reel Therapy. These guys are just way ahead of the pack: They landed more YFT the last two days than seven or eight other boats together!

We'll have this new destination on
www.getaway-sea-angling.com soon but if you are interested in prime dates (January to May) next season you might not want to wait too long. This is going to be a smash hit!

It's not too far away, it's not that expensive – and the fishery and the service it just beyond our wildest expectations. There are so many fish around that for once you can actually bring a few back home without feeling the least bit bad about it!

Hey, you don't even have to bring your own tackle – everything is included! Let's go!

The yellowfin tuna fishing is already on fire in Oman! Ala'a tells the story:

"Yesterday, we found the fish around noon, around 40 miles off shore, busting bait as far as the eye could see! More than two thirds of the hunting YFT seemed to be around 50 kilo or bigger. We saw 70-80 kilo fish jump as well but the smaller fish around 50 kilo outnumbered them so the bigger ones never got a chance to find our lures.

We had some crazy missed takes, the big tunas missing the poppers several times in a row but luckily we did hook up six times – and landed all six fish!

Believe it or not, my guests we first time tuna anglers, they have never done this kind of fishing before. So, six big tunas on topwater, that's a pretty good day!".

We couldn't agree more – and remember Ala'a still has some open dates over the new couple of months; absolute peak time! Those of us who have already planned to visit are counting the days!

THE LACCADIVES #3 – DAY (5-)6-7 REPORT:
We started our 6th day of fishing with Yves changed sides once again: He usually split his days between the two boats. When we asked Ola, Freddie and Bernt how they had done the day before, they just shook their heads and, with big smiles, said: “Yves must tell you the story”. And on our way to the fishing grounds, he did:

Fishing had been OK, though not exactly great, until lunch. By then, they had moved into shallower water, inside the lagoon, and were drifting across a sandy area while having lunch.
Suddenly, their guide Hassan jumped up, grabbed a rod and made a cast. Instantly, he was hooked up to the nice GT that he had spotted a long way out. Sight fishing with a popping rod!

During the fight they could enjoy watching the fish all the way to the boat, making strong runs in the totally clear water. They didn’t know that this was just the beginning of another crazy experience in the Laccadives:

Shortly after, they spotted another big GT cruising across the white sand. Freddie made a cast and boom: Hooked up again! During the next hour, Bernt and Ola also hooked up – five GTs, all hard fighting medium range fish of 15-20 kilos, were hooked and landed on sight fishing with poppers.
“It was like fishing in an aquarium”, Yves cried in his wonderful French accent, when he finished his story, “…exactly like an aquarium!”

After a couple of truly amazing days, things slowed down considerably on Day 6. Our total of 33 GTs landed between the two boats the day before dropped to around 10, with the biggest estimated at 15-16 kilos. Notable catches were Freddie’s first ever napoleon, a juvenile specimen but much appreciated, a nice grouper for Lars and a wahoo of 10-11 kilos for Ola that provided some amazing action on the popper tackle, as well as a very nice dinner for all of us.

The fishing just wasn’t on in deeper water and as a result new plans were made for the next day.
We would start in the deeper water but if no action was found we would change tactics and move inside the lagoon when the tide got up around 10.30.

So, as planned we started popping deeper water on the seventh day of the fishing these pristine waters. It wasn’t too long before I got a massive take on a Skipjack and, even if the hooked pulled out just as I got the first glimpse of a nice 20 kilo+ GT, it was a promising start.

Well, it wasn’t the first promising start in our fishing careers that turned into a pretty dry spell so when the tide starting rising we decided to make the planned move into the lagoon, hoping our catch rate would rise with it.

Now, it was our turn to fish in an aquarium. Not one with a white sandy bottom but a veritable sea garden with the most mesmerising coral spreading across the bottom and, here and there, a bommie rising several meters towards the surface like an underwater tree, attracting fish of all sizes and colours.

As we were casting our poppers and stick baits towards the back of the surf, now gently breaking across the reef, I had to remind myself to focus on fishing my lure instead of just looking in every direction and admiring the many shades of blue – not to mention just staring into the aquarium below the boat.

I didn’t care much whether there were any predators patrolling the edges or lying in ambush under the bommies: Just casting a line across these waters was more than enough for me. However, the fish had different ideas:

At first, we caught a few red snappers and soon followed with two GTs up to 12-13 kilos or so. Not huge, but big enough that we also believed we could connect with some serious GTs in the shallows. We tightened the drags – should we connect with a really big fish in here the odds might not be in our favour but hey, we’re fishermen and eternal optimists!

I was fishing a Gunz stick bait when I got a take so violent that I lost the grip on the reel with my left hand and, for a few seconds, were hanging on for dear life to a Carpenter rod and a screaming Stella reel on a completely stretched out right arm. It must have looked pretty comical while I was desperately trying to regain some control and get the butt of the rod into my fighting belt.

When I finally succeeded, the fish got a bit more cooperative and after pushing it to take the right way around a big bommie things started to turn in the right direction. As it got closer to the boat I thought I had a glimpse of something dark blue…could it be?

Yes, it could: Seconds later I saw the big fish swimming majestically in the clear water and screamed out, “Napoleon, napoleon!”
Instantly, the crew was all over the place and getting ready to land the elusive catch. It was pretty lightly hooked on the barbless trebles but I don’t think hooks easily loose their grip in these big rubbery lips so when Nadir got hold the leader I almost couldn’t contain myself.

Still, we needed to boat the fish and when it made it over the railing soon after it was primal and victorious screams, hand slapping and hugging all around. In the midst of all this Nadir suddenly, and to everyone’s surprise, jumped in the water…I didn’t understand why until I saw a pair of sunglasses sinking slowly towards the bottom. Seconds later they were successfully landed, too.

To me, the day – and this incredible trip – could have ended on a high note right there but in fact, our last full day of fishing had only just begun!

During the next couple of hours, we had some incredible takes from GTs, snappers – and a nice coral trout for Christoffer – but none of it could compare with the action that followed when Christoffer’s popper disappeared in an enormous splash. A split second later a short but crazy run on his tight drag made him loose his footing and nearly made him fall over. Luckily, he didn’t and he was soon into what must now be the GT fight of his life. A big fish that needed to be kept on an extremely tight line, if there was to be a happy ending at the end of this fight. With a mix of skills and luck (of course, he still claims the latter was only a minor part of the successful outcome!) we ended with a massive GT coming to the boat.

Maybe the shallow water somehow made it look even bigger because we all thought it was – by far – the biggest GT of the trip. Well, at 121 cm it was the longest – 1 cm longer than the two 120 cm fish caught earlier – but with a girth of 84 cm it was pretty much in the same weight category as the three other GTs that we had previously estimated around 35 kilos. However, taking into consideration the conditions it was caught under it was – with plenty of margin – the GT catch of the trip.

I’m sorry that this report never seem to end but what followed later that day must have been the coolest GT fishing any of us had ever experienced:

It wasn’t about numbers (we finished the day with 11 GTs in total) and it wasn’t about size – though we did catch another fine 20 kilo +GT ¬– but the conditions…well, sorry if it sounds a bit too corny but I since no words will do justice anyway, let me just say that to a top water angler it was eye candy in its sweetest form:

By now, the lagoon lay flat as a mirror. The low afternoon sun gave a warm light and it was now our turn to find fish across a light, sandy bottom. While we didn’t sight fish the GTs, like our friends had succeeded doing a few days earlier, I have never seen cooler takes. I still remember a fish chasing down my Orichi for several meters on the mirror-like surface, with part of its head and back out of the water, before smashing the popper as if there was no tomorrow. As if the takes weren’t enough, the fights that followed were amazing: We could enjoy seeing the fish run across the sandy and totally obstacle free bottom and when we got them to the boat the light made them stand out, in some extra high definition way, as big silver plates, enhancing every detail of the fish.

When we finally ended this amazing day by anchoring both boats near a sand bank for the night, and enjoying a swim that lasted until the light started to fade, we got the stories from the other boat. They had also had some great shallow water action with all three of them hooking some really good fish. Unfortunately, their biggest fish were all lost. One of them was another massive GT hooked by Ola, and though he didn’t come out as the winner this time he still got something out of it: The craziest and most powerful run he has ever experienced! As consolation, he got a smaller napoleon, bringing our total for the trip to four napoleons.

THE LACCADIVES #2 – DAY 4-5 REPORT:

We left the shallow water of the lagoon as the sun was rising above the breakers on the reef. This is fish-eat-sleep fishing in its purest form and after stowing away the mattresses and getting into our fishing gear there wasn’t time for much else than a cup of tea before it was time to fire the poppers towards the drop off. After the great success of our third day it was hard to keep expectations down as the splashed their way back to the boat.

A few hours into our fourth day in Popper’s Paradise it was clear that the fishing wasn’t on fire like¬ the previous day. But it wasn’t too bad either. A few nice GTs were followed by another shark around 25 kilos – this time a really hard fighting one that fortunately was lightly hooked on the barbless trebles so there was no need to get it into the boat before releasing it.

Christoffer hooked our first really nice GT of the day. Once again, a Skipjack fooled it and soon our first 20 kilo+ GT of the day was in the books. He followed up with a slightly bigger specimen on a Cubera popper later and after a few more GTs the action slowed down.

We changed our focus from the drop off and continued our drift into the shallower water. Since I figured I didn’t need to make the same noise to advertise my lures presence in decided to change my popper for GT Fisher’s Maiko stick bait. I didn’t take too long before a big GT absolutely hammered the lure, darting from side to side right below the surface, and after a great fight our biggest fish of the day was landed. A fat 110 cm fish that we estimated at 25 kilos+.

The stick bait was hot on soon a nice grouper hammered it. A red snapper soon followed and while we hadn’t had much action from snappers until now, probably because we had fished deeper water, the really went for our lures in the shallower water. We must have landed at least ten between the three of us before we went back to the deeper water. This resulted in another follow from a nice doggie and we ended the day with 14 GTs, three topping 20 kilos.
When Freddie, Ola and Bernt joined us for dinner they had some great news: Out of their 20 GTs Bernt had landed two great fish, one of 120 cm that must have been around 35 kilos – and a clearly bigger one of 118 cm, fat as a football, and probably closer to 40 kilos. What a double!

And he even had the chance of another great fight when a huge grouper had followed his popper: “It looked like a 100 kilo fish and I was SO relieved when it didn’t eat the popper!” was Bernt honest finish to that story.

On our fifth day we “only” had around eight hours of fishing time as we wanted to begin the trip towards the next atoll several hours before dark – and we were also fishing the least productive part of the atoll – so we didn’t expect a record breaking day. I’ll fast-forward through it as I’m writing this after a long boat ride, anchored inside the lagoon of the next atoll, and I need to get some rest before the tomorrow’s battle:

We finally hooked a couple of smaller doggies, probably 6-7 kilos, but lost both. A much bigger one followed a popper to the boat, we had another nicely coloured grouper, a couple of 15-16 kilos GTs (one of which must have had a huge ego and decided to fight like a considerably bigger fish) and then Christoffer joined our 35 kilos club with an amazing 120 cm fish. After 14 GTs in total, we decided to go for a nice swim and then set off for the next adventure. We don’t know what the other boat caught – but will soon enough. Now it’s time for some shut eye…Over&Out!

NOTE: A trip to the Laccadives, also known as Lakshadweep, is like entering a time machine that takes you back to unspoiled and, damn near, unfished reefs. While it’s not for everyone – the comfort level is a good deal lower than what you find at other destinations – it’s one on the true topwater adventures left in the northern hemisphere.

Every season, with the help of our great friend Yves Fraisseix, we navigate the bureaucracy, comply with all the crazy rules and run a limited number of expeditions to this popper heaven on earth. To learn more about these trips, drop us a line: info@getaway-sea-angling.com

Now, that’s what we call tuna-action! We just got this clip from our partner Ala’a in Oman. While he is still waiting for the main run of the migrating yellowfin tunas to hit his home waters he decided to scout some waters a bit further south. This would give some indication of how the run is going to be during peak time in Muscat.
Well, we can only say it looks as if we are going to get an epic YFT season there! This triple hook up was part of the craziest tuna fishing Ala’a ever experienced in Oman – but that’s another story for another time.
Our group trip is April is already sold out but we’re working on putting another one together, and we still have open dates in prime time for individual bookings, too. Give us a shout!

51 ROOSTERFISH IN LESS THAN 4 HOURS!
(Or: When life gives you lemons, make lemonade!)

A few weeks ago, we had a group of great Germans fishing the Tuna Coast in Panama. Unfortunately, the woke of to some pretty windy conditions on their second day of fishing. We'll let our friend Andre Schmitt tell the story:

– Because of the wind and some pretty big waves it was hard to fish. So instead of heading offshore, we decided to fish the coast for roosters. Our best decision ever!

We found a crazy concentration of smaller rooster fish. They attacked everything: Small poppers, small stickbaits and even big stickbaits. I caught 22 of them, then I jumped into the water to take pictures of the other guys while they were fighting and casting.

During only 3,5 hours we caught a total of 51 rooster fish. New lodge record, too! We were ecstatic!

PS Fancy some rooster action? Come with us to the Tuna Coast in Panama! We still got a few spots left at the end of the year.

THE LACCADIVES #1 – DAY 1-3 REPORT:
After a two-years wait it was finally time for my group to step off the flight from Kochin to Agatti, the main island of the Laccadives. The weather was great and with eight days fishing in front of us, and a very positive report from the previous group, expectations were high.

We made the transfer from Agatti to the tent camp at Tinakara, rigged up tackle and relaxed the rest of the day. Around ten in the evening we boarded our two boats and started our journey into the night, towards our chosen northern atoll.

The night was unusually cold and when we started fishing in the morning, there wasn’t much action. The wind increased and the first two days only saw a dozen GTs up to 12-13 kilos landed, a nice 10 kilo+ grouper for Freddie, a small napoleon on stick bait for Christoffer – and a much, much bigger napoleon hooked. Unfortunately, it made it to the bottom with Bernt’s popper. All in all, there wasn’t much else to write home about after the first two days – so I won’t!

During the night between our second and third day the wind was howling. We were anchored in the lagoon, on the inside of the atoll. I woke up several times during the night, each time hoping the wind had dropped, and each time getting disappointed. Around five, the wind finally started to drop and when we made it through the entrance in the reef two hours later the weather was actually really nice. The wind was feeling warmer and had really started to come down. We hoped it was calm enough the fish the most productive reefs and half an hour later we realized we had nothing to worry about: Conditions were perfect!

The fish probably hadn’t fed much the last couple of days so we hoped they had some catching up to do. We were off to a promising start when we caught a couple of GTs between five and ten kilos. Then a sailfish followed a popper to the boat, with a second sail behind it. The re must have been a school of the under the boat and, to our amusement, the crew hooked one on their hand line from the back of the boat. It only lasted one jump and what must have been a pretty “palm warming” run. When a sailfish ate my popper a few cast later it didn’t even stay hooked long enough to get a jump or a run – these things are very hard to hook on big lures. This was followed by a crazy take which turned out to be a reef shark in the 25 kilo range that we had a pretty hard time unhooking. The sea was surely coming back to life. And that is when he most incredible GT action started!

We found the fish right at the drop off into deeper water, so we fished some pretty noisy poppers with good success. I won’t bore you with all the details but we soon started catching some great and hard fighting GTs from 15-20 kilos. That’s when I decided to try a 120 Orichi from GT Fishers, and with that lure the party really started: First, I caught very fat 116 cm GT with an incredibly 93 cm girth that we estimated around 35 kilos and followed up with a 117 cm, another 30 kilo+ GT!

Then it was time for a photo-break when Lars and Christoffer landed some nice 20 kilo+ GTs – and when I started casting the Orichi again, it wasn’t too long before I caught another 25 kilo+ GT!

It’s always better to be lucky than good, and I sure was very lucky when I gave the Orichi a break and a caught the fourth 25 kilo+ GT of the day on a big 168 g Temple Reef Detonator. At the same time, Lars was fighting a 20 kilo+ GT that we landed 30 seconds later, just in time for a double pose.

We rounded off the day with an incredible triple take that resulted in a photo of three very happy Danes posing with three GTs, the smallest a sure 25 kilo+ fish and the biggest going around 35 kilo (120 cm, 84 cm girth) for Lars.

At 27 GTs, with eight topping 25 kilo and more of the remaining GTs above 15 kilos than below(!), a shark, a nice barracuda, a few snappers and Bluefin trevallies, we decided to call it a day. And what a day it was!

When Ola, Bernt and Freddie joined us for dinner they had some great stories, too. Ola was Popper King of the day with two GTs around 25 and 30 kilos and the team had 17 GTs in total, coral trout, a jobfish (that the crew somehow managed to steal for their dinner!), rainbow runner and a small yellowfin tuna that made some great sashimi with Yves’ soya and wasabi. It was washed down with Freddie’s now famous aftershave (that has a incredible resemblance to 20 years old Ron Zacapa). What a nice way to finish a great day!

Our season at the Laccadives is in full swing! Erik Axner and friends was part of the first group of 2018, and they came back with these great pictures after a week that saw some challenges.

In the beginning of the week, the weather was a bit rough and after a few days the dropping water temperature of the sea saw them focusing on deeper water. This really paid off:

Two REALLY big GTs missed their lures (or didn't strike as enthusiastically as they could have, maybe because of the colder water) and the potentially biggest fish of the week, an enormous dog tooth tuna somewhere between 50 and 70 kg never ate Erik's popper, but only followed it all the way to the boat. Still, they boated lots of really nice fish with around 15 GTs on the heavier side of 20 kg. That's not too bad for three anglers during the second half of the week!

Last night, we heard from our German representative, Robert Balkow: He just finished a really good week with 114 GTs in his boat alone! Apparently, the doggies are on the winning team this year: Robert lost the biggest dogtooth he has ever hooked, a sure 50kg+ fish, a few minutes into a crazy fight.

Still two spots left this season, from March 13-25. (8 days fishing for the price of 6!)

Team Finland it still at it in the Maldives – landing wahoo, dog tooth tuna and nice GTs right, left and center! They still have a couple of days fishing left, we don't dare imagine what they'll total before it's finally back to freezing Finlandia :-)

Remember! We still offer a trip in the Maldives from late February to early March this year. If we can find 3-4 anglers (we have a few seriously interested already) we have a special expedition to a remote atoll that is very rarely fished. Due to the short notice there is a great offer for this trip: 30% discount on the normal price!

Our Finnish team, led by Mika Vornanen, arrived in Male three days ago and have only fished two days – meaning that even if they are Finnish, they only just got started. And what a start!

19 GTs so far, up to more than 30 kilos, in two days – thanks to capt. Mohamed and his hard working crew. With five more days, we don't dare to think what these Finnish vikings will pull from the ocean before the return to their cold winter homes.

By the way! We just got a cancellation in the Maldives from late February to early March this year. If we can find 3-4 anglers to go on this fairly short notice we have a special expedition ready to a remote atoll that is very rarely fished. We have a speciel offer for this trip (30% discount on the normal price!).

EXPERIENCE OMAN'S TUNA FRENZY!

If there are three letters in the world of topwater fishing that spells high adrenaline action – then it must be "YFT" - Yellow Fin Tuna!

We're now booking our first group trip (surely, many more will follow).

April 14 (Saturday)*: Departure from Europe, arrival in Muscat. Transfer to hotel.
April 15-19: Five long days (10 hrs) on the water, chasing bait busting yellowfin tunas!
April 20 (Friday): Departure from Muscat, arrival in Europe.

(Other dates are also available.)

Included: 5 full days of fishing, 3-4 anglers per boat, 6 nights, breakfast and packed lunch + drinks on the boat, all needed transfers – and high quality tackle!

Only 8-9 hours travel time form northern Europe – and flights are often as low as €500!

FOR MORE INFORMATION: info@getaway-sea-angling.com

- - -

If you need further convincing, read the Q&A with Capt. Ala'a:

WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED, AND WHAT IS YOUR FISHING BACKGROUND?

We are located in Muscat, Oman. Specifically at Marina Bandar Al Rawdha. I started off my game fishing career in 2008 and have been involved in numerous world qualifying championships in this region. I qualified to Costa Rica in 2016 and finished runners up in the Fujairah Offshore Fishing Tournament 2017. Then I travelled to the Outer banks in North Carolina in 2014 for the almighty Bluefin Tuna with the Saltywater Tackle crew.


WHEN, AND HOW, DID YOU DISCOVER THE TUNA FISHING IN MUSCAT?

Muscat has always been known to be home for the Yellowfin Tuna and other pelagic species. Unfortunately, we had a very bad run of fishing from 2007-2011 due to Korean fleets trolling nets in our waters in collaboration with an Omani sponsor. This made our fishery suffer and luckily this form of fishing has been banned since 2011. It took a couple of years for the fishery to recover and I decided to bring in the topwater game I picked up in the states in 2014. It has been a great success!


FOR HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN TUNA FISHING IN MUSCAT?

I started briefly in 2014 and have been doing it extensively since 2015. Nevertheless, the captains that work for us have been tuna fishing in Muscat since the late 90s and have been working with popping techniques for 3 to 4 years now.

HOW DO YOU FISH FOR THESE TUNES – IS IT OFTEN A LOT OF DRIFTING & BLIND CASTING OR IS IT MORE OF A HUNT??

We never blind cast or drift in Muscat. First, we locate the fish using all available means, whether it is local intel, marine radars or experience. Once the fish is located then it’s a hunt, most of the time we fish for the YFT feeding with the dolphins (Spinners and common dolphin). During part of the season (April to July) they can be found both with dolphins as well as busting solo. We mainly target the YFT on popper or stick bait, and sometimes jigging. Live bait is always a back up with us just in case the fish are really picky. Most of the time our poppers are inhaled sooner or later.


WHAT IS THE TUNA SEASON IN MUSCAT?

Tuna can be found year round in Muscat if searched for enough. The peak season is from March to July as the water warms up and turns blue.


WHAT WEATHER SHOULD BE EXPECTED DURING SEASON?

The weather is generally predictable during the season. A long swell could be expected from May to July during the SW Monsoon season in the Arabian sea (20 days a month would be fishable).


HOW FAR WILL YOU RUN TO FIND FEEDING TUNAS?

During the season the fish are often first spotted from 20-30km offshore. We don't have any restriction and sometimes run in deeper to find the right feed. Typically, it will be somewhere between 30 and 100km offshore.

ON AN AVERAGE DAY DURING TUNA SEASON WHAT KIND OF ACTION CLULD BE EXPECTED?

On an average day, 3-4 hooks ups could be expected. When the fishing is on fire, 10 to 15 strikes could be expected easily, landing every fish is a different story!


WHAT SIZES ARE THE TUNAS YOU ARE CATCHING?

Average size during the season is 40-60KG, smaller YF in the 10-20KG range are also encountered. This April, numerous specimens between the 70 and 100KG range were caught.


WHAT IS THE BIGGEST YFT LANDED ON YOUR TWO BOATS?

The three biggest went 77 KG, 83KG and 86KG.

WHAT KIND OF TACKLE (PE RATING) DO YOU RECOMMEND?

PE 5-6 is what we’ll be using for the 40 to 60KG class fish which are dominant during the month of April. Nevertheless, one heavy rod (PE8 to 10) could be required once the fish crosses that 70KG mark.


WHICH LURES ARE AMONGST YOUR FAVORITES FOR YFT?

Halco Roosta Haymaker Popper, Carpenter Seafrog 120g, FCL Labo EbiPop 190 and 220, Tacklehouse Britt Sinking stickbait 98g. Native Works Napalm 200 or 220, Guston Super Knife 180.
Our rule of thumb:
Tuna feeding on baitfish (goggle eye or sardines): Stickbait/Poppers.
Tuna feeding on flying fish: Poppers.
Tuna feeding on Squid: Diving Poppers.


CAN YOU HIRE TACKLE, OR IS IT INCLUDED – AND IF SO, WHAT KIND OF TACKLE DO YOUR OFFER?

Tackle is included (we offer 1 rod/reel per person). All our reels are Shimano Stellas 8k, 10k, 14k, 18k and 20k. Rods: Yamaga, Hots, Carpenter, Zenaq, Jigging Master, Saltywater Tackle Racepoint, Ripple Fisher.


ARE THE OTHER SPECIES TO FISH FOR, AND IF SO HOW DO YOU FISH FOR THEM?

Yes, mahi-mahi and sailfish – both of which can be targeted on topwater as well. We also have some inshore light tackle jigging for amberjacks, grouper, long-tail tuna and barracuda.


AND FINALLY: IN OMAN, IS IT POSSIBLE TO GET A COLD BEER AFTER FISHING?

Yes, it's possible to get a cold beer after fishing :-)

LAST CALL FOR THE LACCADIVES – WINTER 2018
We've just had a call from India: Our great friend Yves is wrapping it up after the first half of the season and getting ready for a well deserved Xmas-break with his family.
In early January, we start again and continue the season until late April.
Unfortunately for Yves – possibly, luckily for you?! – three anglers booked for March 14-23 had to cancel.
This is an eight day trip, fishing the most remote and best parts of this incredible fishery.
We're looking for three adventurous popping enthusiasts that could fancy an eight day trip for the price of a six day trip!
Get in touch – these three last spots won't last long.

CRAZY CUDAS!
After a long boat ride we finally made it to one of the most famous spots in the Andamans; the Invisible Bank, almost 60 NM from Port Blair. 
The famous bank is 7-10 meters in depth but being surrounded waters up to 2000 meters there is always strong currents and lots of big predators around.
We were hoping for big GTs and maybe a dog tooth tuna on topwater – and while the GTs were surely there (I think we caught seven in the first hour or so) it turned out the be a bunch of monster barracudas that stole the show.
One cut the line and stole a stick bait from us, another two fell off on the way to the boat – but finally we succeeded:
Olof Ohlsson landed a long, lean cuda with a massive head (guesstimated at around 17 kilos or so), followed by a fish around 15 kilo by Jonas Holmsgård – before Olof finished off with a real monster around the 20 kg mark!
Anyone fancy a swim? If so, were taking bookings!

We have seen some horrible weather this autumn; the Maldives in late November-early December was no exception.
The weather started out great, and so did the fishing, for Erik Axner & friends – but it soon changed to strong winds and extremely challenging conditions.
The group still managed to have a good time and make the best of it – what else can you do. Well fought, guys!

We've had a pretty tough autumn season on Panama's Tuna Coast. As elsewhere in the Centralamerican region we've been challenged by tough weather conditions – but our groups still caught some nice fish. These are from tour leader Mikael Johansson who just returned from these great waters.
P. S. We have two spots left at the Tuna Coast for late January – and then everything is sold out until May 2018.

The fishing in the Andamans is off to a great start for the NSA-team! Plenty of GT has been caught up to the mid 30-range and several ones around the 20 kg mark.
Besides that, groupers, snappers, dogtooth tunas and also an unexpected kingfish has been caught, even if conditions are far from great.

Quite a lot of wind and rain is playing a tough game with them but the fighting spirit is high and hard work pays off! Here are some great catches from the first two days.

Enjoy folks!

Our first trip to the Andamans was off to a rough start: A storm was passing and high winds made it impossible to land in Port Blair!
A short delay was followed by a couple of days with very choppy seas and lots of rain for our hard fighting German group.
Luckily, the challenging start during the bad weather window did not demoralize the team and they got the best out of their 7 days of fishing. Some good top water Dogtooth tunas and bunch of GTs around the 30Kg mark was a well deserved reward for these great guys – well done!

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.

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?

PANAMA TUNA COAST – the coast of surprises

When planning a trip to Panamas Tuna Coast you can only be certain about one thing: That you won’t really know what will be waiting for you.  
 
Will this be the week where big roosters will chase your poppers on the surface, will it be this week that the super strong – and almost evil looking – cubera snappers are on their fins or will yellowfin tunas suddenly appear in big numbers? Are the millions of bait fish and thousands of jacks along the beaches, or will it be a mix of all this – or something completely different?  
 
The Tuna Coast is the coast of surprises. Anything can happen here.
 
We have open spots on the following group trips:
1 open spot – October 19-29, 2017
5 open spots – October 30-November 9, 2017 
1 open spot – November 8-18, 2017
3 open spots – November 21-December 3, 2017 (9 days at the lodge)

THE MALDIVES – from $2100 per person

From GT-popping at bargain prices to Remote Atoll expeditions for hard core GT-hunters.

Whether you are new to popping for Giant Trevally, dog tooth tuna, grouper, snapper and other fast swimming species hunting along the shallow reefs of the Indian Ocean – or whether you already have a good deal of experience with this adrenaline rushing style of fishing we have the perfect Maldives trip for you.
 
A BARGAIN PRICE!
Our prices start as low as $2100 per person for 5 fishing days – with 4 anglers on our 36-foot speedboat with 2 x 250HP and the best popper-captain in the Maldives!  
 
You can get flights to Male from $800-850 from most European countries – a better fishing package for the Maldives simply doesn’t exist!  
 
If you are a party of three to six anglers we have available dates from September to April though the boat is almost fully booked during January and February, where a lot of anglers wants to leave the cold European winter.  
 
We also have open spots on the following group trips:
3 open spots – November 18-25, 2017  (Popper School)
2 open spots – May 6-11, 2018 (Gaafu Dhaluu Expedition – deep south)

The cubera snapper is simply one of the meanest, coolest, hardest, greatest and strongest fish you can catch on surface lures!
We just love these brutes – it's pure "hook and hold-on-for-dear-life-fishing" – and we know no place better to target them than on Panama's Tuna Coast!
Oh! That reminds us we have a few open spots left this year:
Oct 19-29 (1 spot left)
Oct. 30-Nov. 9 (5 spots left) and
Nov. 8-18 (1 spot left).

Amazing 😍

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

Que buenos

Madre mía que máquinas

Our friend Shin Achiwa ALWAYS catches the big ones when he is popping on his boat in the Maldives! This nice GT is from yesterday.
We will beat him next time we go! You can do it too – we are now booking next fall/winter/spring season in our favorite popping destination!
