Over the last
few years we have refined the tackle for use while popper and jig fishing in the Andaman Islands, from the numerous and often confusing hype that goes on over the internet, the basic tackle required to fish effectively in the Andaman Islands can be reduced to a few brands that will work well almost anywhere in the world
As we have been professionally gamefishing for Giant Trevally GT and Dogtooth tuna from 2005 with great results as you can see, you should know that we are mainly a popping (topwater) and jigging outfit. Our knowledge of the areas and conditions where we fish means we are able to give you a comprehensive list of what tackle to bring on your trip.
We do not only cater to experienced anglers and are very keen to introduce newcomers to the world of extreme sportfishing, we have quality tackle that first timers can rent from us to use on their trips or in case you are not able to bring your own fishing gear. We recommend that anyone wanting to try popping and jigging read the articles below to get and idea of what its all about.

We believe in fighting
our fish ‘Stand Up’ style that is more demanding on
the angler and is more fun!
GT or Giant Trevally
popper fishing is a fast spreading style of fishing that involves
throwing large poppers around the coral reef edge to lure out the
hard fighting Giant Trevally. Explosive surface breaking attacks
on Poppers will ensure an unforgettable adrenalin rush. These fish
are tough fighters and can destroy both angler and equipment.
The basic objective
when jigging for bottom fish is to drop the jig to the depths and
move it about so it appears to swim erratically or “hop”
along the bottom, which is the ideal presentation for catching many
bottom-feeding fish, such grouper. Essentially, jigging in this
manner is referred to as “vertical” jigging, though
vertical jigging does not always entail keeping the jig near the
bottom. Again jigging in the Andaman Islands is very extreme and
fish like dogtooth tuna test angler and tackle to the max. Jigging
rods are made to work heavy jigs at great depths and reels to match
the jigs and large fish. We do recommend you write to us for a tackle list.
