Welcome to part 3.....

If you want to see some more pics about fishing and travelling you can also look at my blog http://markussbg.wordpress.com/

After many landbased sessions where i had good fun and fishing luck, but never managed to hook up a big one, the weekend of the BBMAC fishing expedition to a amazing spot for GT came. Jeff from England and myself have been luckily invited to join the trip.

Started with some friends on Saturday afternoon as the first to set up the camp. After 9 hours drive we arrived at the camping spot. We build the camp and went to sleep, and during the night the rest of the club arrived.

And finally the morning came and we boarded the boat.

When we boarded the boat (local lobsterfishermen boat) i had a positive feeling that today there will maybe bite some fish...

After one hour drive we arrived at the first fishing spot. Was using a self made popper from Martin. Named after his son: Angky Popper Sumbawa. Was the first time the Angky poppers hit the water.

Just look the first picture when there are rocks, surf and a watercolour like in the picture "you have to be winner".

10 people started casting and on my second cast i was lucky to strike the first GT (5kg). After a short time one more Angler landed a GT of 10 kg. Then the Angkypopper was eaten again and i was able to land a GT close to 20kg (all weights are estimated!).

The Game was on and two more GTs under 10kg was landed. One Angler was lucky to catch a really nice Barracuda on a popper and another angler landed a 4kg Redbass.

We saw even a small Marlin jumping close to the rocks!

At Lunchtime we turned already around and fishing the spots again on the way back. The boat was driving in an area with with big waves and when i turned my had i saw mountains coming in our direction. But the Captain was still smiling so no panic i was able to set a cast in the surf close to the rocks popped for a few seconds and then the waves was hitting us and the Captain gave power to the engine and started to drive away. I had to hold myself with one hand on the boat and the popper was trolled. After a couple of seconds the reel started screaming, strike! Set the Drag harder and the run stopped. The fish was no more able to take any line from the reel but was putting a massive pressure on the rod. And its nice when you can answer a question like this: "you hooked up a rock" "no its a fish strong as a rock". After 6-7 minutes the GT was on the Boat we estimated the fish 20-25kg.

The GTs was not so strong fighting like i was expecting from all the stories, the reason was probably that they inhaled the popper and been hooked deep inside the mouth. But still good feeling to hang your full bodyweight in the rod!

The result of a half day boattrip: 6 GT, one Barracuda, one Redbass.

There was two popping tactics used: The "Jet Ski" fast retrieving of the popper with rod tip up. And the Junk action with medium long brakes in between. One angler and me was using the second one and on this day the second tactic was most successful.

Thanks to Martin and all the Members of the Club finally a dream came true.

As more anglers have arrived and we where now in total 15 We went out with two boats on the second day, but this time the watercolour was not perfect anymore from rain in the night and so we didnt get a single fish.

But this is wath comes out when you turn around from the camp in direction to the beach, cast your silverspoon 20m: On the first cast a nice Bluefin Trevally

Some impressions from the land of GT:

This pictures are from the club archiv....

Indonesia was a amazing place with untouched nature and amazingly friendly people. Already dreaming of another trip there, perfectly together with a friend to go for a big GT exploration.


After 12 Days in Kuala Lumpur waiting for my India Visa i received today the clearance and will have tomorrow the Visa. So looking now forward to fish again the Indian waters and hope to meet up with many IA Members.

Thanks for reading the Report, hope you enjoyed it and see you soon in incredible India!
