Techniques of fishing:
Casting fishing with poppers and sliders.
The most coveted trophy in this kind of fishing - giant karanka (eng. GT – Giant Trevally), is recognized as one of the strongest fish found in the ocean! The average weight of the predator ranges are between 20 – 30 kg. but not uncommon and larger specimens weighing more than 40-50 kg.

Vertical jig
This type of fishing is not less interesting and various than fishing on poppers. Fierce battles with tuna and groupers will leave an unforgettable impression. The average weight of predators ranging from 10 – 40 kg.

Trolling
A large concentration of fish along the reefs will automatically attract large predators such as sailfish, Marlin, Barracuda, Wahoo and tuna. Sailboat dwell here quite a lot. Per day not uncommon to catch 3 – 5 pieces! The average weight of 30 – 50 kg.
