Fishing the Andaman Islands


Andaman and Nicobar Islands form an archipelago located about 2000 km from the coast of India, 750 km from Thailand to the Bay of Bengal of the Indian ocean. More than 370 Islands, many of which are still untouched by civilized man, belong to India and are carefully protected by the Indian law. Most of them remain uninhabited, other tribes are the most ancient people on earth, completely isolated from the outside world and with unique abilities that defy the understanding of modern scientists.
The Andaman Islands are still pristine, unspoiled and considered one of the best places for fishing in Asia. The Andaman Islands are available for sea fishing sports just a few years ago. Still some parts of the archipelago are considered to be a protected area. There are no commercial catch of fish! The waters of the archipelago is replete with a rich variety of marine predators. All the best fishing points found in the range of from 15 minutes to an hour speed boat.

Recommended tackle: boat fishing used rods with a length of 2,10-2,40, test, 150-200g. With coil 12000-15000 and braid No. 8. For fishing from the shore – length spinning about 3 meters, with the test is 80-90 g., 5000-6000 reel and braided line No. 3. When a more thorough approach, we would recommend to use Shimano stellas, SW18000 for popping and SW20000 for jig. Poppers are used to weighing 100-200g., jig up to 300g and up.
Rental gear: gear for trolling and vertical jig provided by the captain of the ship, if you're a fan of fishing on the Popper or the classic jig, you will have to take gear with you or rent them on site. The cost of renting one set of 30 euros per day. Two features spinning rod for popping and a jig for one fisherman will cost 45 euros.
Rules of fishing: all fish caught must be returned to the sea, with the exception of the deceased. Allowed to take one fish for the group to prepare for dinner.
The output of fishing at 8am and returning just before sunset (5pm).If You go to the Andaman for the trophy tuna then we recommend longer exits on a fishing trip to such places as X10 or Invisible banks located 50-60 miles from the coast. Such a trip requires good weather and special permission from the authorities, and it will cost 600 euros to the price of the package.
Free time you can devote to fishing from the shore. Technique coastal fishing, the main thing – to throw to maximum depths, so use long-range baits.
