Amazing Action Sri Lanka Fishing Report Just read this fantastic report from returning customers from our operation out of the Sri Lankan Coast, amazing fishing in just a few days, great variety of species and some monster GT’s to bust everyone’s muscles and tackle.
First up on day 1 after explaining to the customers that the fish are not in Sri Lanka in quantity but quality, David gets a nice fish in the 30 kg range to start his trip. And then follows things up with a nice leaping Cobia on Popper. More nice fish are landed, plus lots of lost fish due to line breaks, more lost than anyone would like to mention.
Some areas had a lot of GT’s in the smaller sizes, but with big fish coming up on the lures in-between the small ones, there was also plenty of average sized GT’s like the one pictured above. Would you believe this nice Golden trevally took a popper
Jean was fishing light lures as that is what he prefers and finally managed a mid size one on his lighter gear.
Check out this jet black GT, good size too for a black GT, David is all smiles after it pulled hard!!!!
The above size fish is the regular each day with one or two really big fish coming up, we had more bust offs in shallow water, again today.
We thought this huge Spanish mackerel was a dogtooth the way it smacked the lure and took off; one look at the size of it and you will know that this is one Spaniard and a half!!
Another view to give you an idea of the size of this fish. MONSTER
More nice GT’s for David, he was with the right gear and had the dedication to keep going for big results.
Jean too got into the action after this 25kg GT was caught on a light setup and took nearly 25 minutes to land
Another huge Spanish although a bit smaller than the first one again came up and smashed the popper.
Jean with a nice GT caught on the Racepoint 200 which he had to switch too as he has a cracked line guide on his other rod.
Franck posed with a normal sized GT when the bite is on we are getting a good number of bites from fish like this each day.
David again ends the trip very nicely with another great GT, so all in all a great trip for returning clients to one of our top destinations.
If you too fancy coming out and playing hard with these fish, make sure you visit the gym regularly beforehand
