I was on a holiday to Zanzibar last week. It is territory of the United Republic of Tanzania. An island territory in the Indian ocean rich with marine life. Apart from the SCUBA diving and other water sports, I decided to indulge in Deep Sea Fishing, trust me it is MIGHTY expensive for my income. But thankfully we found somebody to share our fishing charter which costed US$550 (could have purchased a number of gears instead). As we set sail (fired the motors to be precise) with very high expectations (I did nothing about deep sea fishing before this and had no clue how it works) after a long long long wait we got our first and the only bite and as the luck would have it, it was the turn of my friend from Kiwi country to fight the fish. He had to fight this beauty tooth and nail and it was finally on board. They call it Wahau it was about 17 Kg. There after there was not a single bite throughout the next 6 hours inspite of this being the yellow fin tuna season.
The next day I hired a boat of a local fisherman to learn the local fishing. They let the hook settle the bottom of the sea (about 80 mtrs only) and catch some fantastic varieties of fish. Through out the time we spent there my guide caught with his hand line on every cast where as I really struggled with my rod but finally manage just one fish.
But both the trips were amazing learning experience. I would go for it again.

This is the Wahau, but I did not get to fight this one!

This one I landed on a hand line as I was not getting any success whit the rod while fishing in waters not very deep, say about 60 meters.

This one was caught while fishing with the local fisherman, taught a new method where you allow to rest the hook on the bottom, I guess it was about 60-70 meters

Congrats. Thanks for sharing..... I personally felt myself speak when I read
"Through out the time we spent there my guide caught with his hand line on every cast where as I really struggled with my rod but finally manage just one fish."
I still feel like this at times even now.... However I've learned it is more about being by the water feeling the breeze looking around, spotting some beautiful birds, breathing fresh oxygen away from the city's pollution. A fish is a bonus. At the same time learning to set the hook is also something which gets better with experience. Best of luck for future trips.

Regards,
Omesh

Congrats, Kedar,

Lovely fish. Tera bhi number aayega. Keep on bashing. $ 550 is very steep for a fishing expedition. :roll: :roll: I guess u need deep pockets for deep sea fishing.
:D :D
Regards
Cavalier

Yep! Deep fishing is directly proportional to deep pockets!

But you can have a lot of fun fishing near the shore at the right spot with the right tackle?

Thank you sir, for your replies. Sure it burnt a big hole in my pocket and more worrisome, it attracted WRATH of my better half, to whom it was PURE stupidity. May be in my village, it will not as expensive!! I am looking forward to returning back to India, hopefully I will get some leave before going to next duty station. I am going to spend some time with the fisher folk in my village, learning their tricks of the trade.

Women are logical! I have always lost money when I have ignored the advice of my mom & wife!

The Wahoo looks impressive!

Great Catches, the Wahoo is grand. How was the fight compared to a king Mackerel ?

Would love to get one for a change.

Once again Congrats.
