Single Angler Sri Lanka Popper Fishing Report


As you maybe aware we are now running many single angler weeks at a few of our most popular popper fishing destinations. We find that there are lots of anglers out there that struggle to find groups of four anglers who can all get the same time off work, afford such a trip and more importantly get time away from their families.

So with this in mind we have set up some fantastic weeks where you can join groups of four anglers as a single angler at no extra cost, this is proving to be ever so popular and dates are flying out of the window faster than we can add them.

This below report was from our latest single angler week at our destination in Sri Lanka and as you can see, it went down very well:


Paul, Robert & Nicholas were formed all from single anglers and had never met each other before this trip and by the looks of things have formed a very good friendship and may travel together to other destinations. They joined our skipper aboard Rampageous for a shot at the local GTs it was the guys first time on heavy duty popping gear so there was a bit of a learning curve involved and the sea conditions where less than perfect.

“This was their first time on heavy duty popper fishing”

The guys on this singles week were all British and possessed the legendary stiff upper lip so never a complaint was uttered as we bashed our way around the ocean that was being battered by strong winds.

Their first time heavy popper fishing


Paul and Robert stuck to the big guns throwing poppers and stickbaits for the GTs while Nick found his niche in the popping and jigging world with the guide’s light jigging setup. Each day brought a different bite and they struggled to nail down a pattern. One day we would have a flurry of activity in the morning, the next a slow but constant bite throughout the day and on others the activity only happened late in the afternoon or mid-day.

The biggest of the day, well done


This meant they were forced to fish the entire day with little rest for fear of missing the golden hour of action. Their best day saw them raise around 20 fish although they only had four hit the deck. We also missed multiple Spanish Mackerel and lost a fair amount of tackle to the toothy buggers.

“They raised 20 fish but only got 4 to stick”

While Paul and Robert put in the hard yards Nick was having the time of his life on the light jigging rods. Landing fish constantly, he managed to pick up 3 solid Golden Trevally in one day with the largest measuring 80cm which is pretty amazing as I normally see one every three trips or so. It was an enjoyable trip with great banter and conversations on the boat to go along with the fishing and I hope the trip lived up to their expectations.
