GROUP TRIP POPPING & JIGGING!
'The Andaman Islands and Nicobars' is what this archipelago is officially called. Located in the Bay of Bengal in the Indian Ocean between India and Thailand, it is in this fishing mecca where many a fishing heart has been lost to Giant Trevally and popper fishing. But jigging also gives great results. In between, many other species like marlin, barracuda, groupers, spanish mackerel, yellowfin tuna, amberjack and so on are also caught.
So species are plenty in the crystal clear waters with secluded reefs and tropical islands. This location is closest to the illustrious fishing spots 'Barren Island' and 'Invisible Banks' where on every trip some big fish are hooked but simply can not be caught because they are too big and strong. In addition, the best spots for jigging are also best reached from this location.
For this fishing, we work with our local partner from the stunning Havelock Island. This partner has been operating here for more than 12 years and has, among other things, a custom-built 35-foot fishing boat with 250 HP and by the end of 2023, another equal fishing boat will be added to the fleet. This location has developed into a top spot in recent years with big GT being caught every year, so booking early is highly recommended.
The trip takes place from Tuesday 28 January 2025 tm Thursday 6 February 2025 and consists of:
Maximum 7 anglers plus 1 guide. The cost of this trip is € 3,695.- per person excluding international flights, visa and tips. The expected cost for international flights from Europe is around € 1,000.- to € 1,400.- per person. But let us know your airport of departure and we can assist with booking your flights.

GTs, dogtooth tuna, wahoo, barracuda, marlin, tuna, dorado, groupers...... All big fish that reach up to 30, 40 and sometimes even 50 pounds and in extreme cases even in kilos. Between fishing spots you can troll for yellowfin tuna, barracuda, wahoo if you want to relax a little. For trolling, all materials can be supplied. After a day of popping and or jigging, a moment of rest for the back is also quite nice. Until you get another hookup, of course! Then you will have to get back to work.
Fishing takes place up to about 25 miles from the departure location. Except of course if we go to Barren island on two days. These two long trips obviously depend on weather conditions.
