Sri Lanka Fishing in January- Report

Early January saw us experimenting and trying out the inshore species again, then our guides have arrived Nicolas and Erik both back from a break and very eager to get going. We had decided that we would look at expanding our jigging options available as we had caught some nice fish on jig earlier, quick checks of the boats and equipment and we are ready to head out jigging, there is so much happening now that its very exciting with big fish and multiple species coming up regularly here are a few excerpts.

First up we have Erik with a nice gold spot taken in a new jigging spot

And of course no jigging spot is complete without paying the Sri Lanka tax in terms of lost equipment to the Spanish mackerel around, this one was not so lucky though and was landed before it could bite through….

Of course when we had the opportunity to pop we did and this is one of the few big 40kg GT that was actually landed when you start to have fish like this coming up you need to have the right equipment and shortcomings will be exposed, below Jean Luc poses with one of a few he finally managed to hook up to.
