Yellowfin and Dogtooth Tuna Fishing
Favourites amongst modern big game anglers, due to its immense speed and power. Some of the best big Dogtooth and Yellowfin Tuna action in the Indian Ocean can be found around the Andaman Islands. We have consistently caught big Tuna here during the last seasons. Narcondam and Barren Islands, two volcanic Islands NE of Port Blair can produce top tuna action and very big fish are available here. Early morning or evening downrigger fishing with big Marauders or Yo-Zuri Bonita diving plugs produce spectacular hook-ups on stand up equipments. Jigging or chunking night time around these Island also produces fantastic action with big fish. We have also had fast Tuna trolling action around the large schools of Dolphin near the drop offs around the main Islands.
The Andaman Islands lies 405 miles North West of Phuket, an archipelago of 329 islands belonging to India. After 50 years of virtual isolation from the outside world, the Indian government lifted its restricted access to the islands, and allowed limited environmentally friendly tourism development. It is only since 1993 that the Indian authorities have allowed scuba diving and sportfishing.
Commercial fishing is very light in most areas, which is one of the main reasons the waters of the Andaman Islands are "Teeming with fish." It is a vast area of almost 8,500 square kilometers, dotted with tropical islands and a submarine mountainous seascape providing an almost unlimited playground for game fish species and big-game fisherman.
We pioneered the first fishing trips to this magical area 8 years ago, which gives us the upper hand when it comes to terms of experience and knowledge of the species, and also the best fishing grounds.
Along the East and West coasts of Narcondam and Barren Islands there are drop-offs of 1000 to 2000 meters depth which attract huge Black and Blue Marlin, Broadbill Swordfish, Sailfish and a multitude of other highly sought after big-game species.
Popper casting for big surface feeding Yellowfin tuna from the fore deck is one of the ultimate thrills in saltwater sport fishing. We have developed this technique during the last couple of seasons and the results been very rewarding. You can see the action on the film Target Popper (for sale now in tackle shops and on-line) recorded from our boat.
