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.

Fishing General!

Earlier in the season we were out fishing with General Chauhan and party, who visited the Andaman Islands to catch some GT on popper. There trip was a short and explosive trip with many a quality GT being landed on popper.
