A new type of tackle used as bait has made fishing for this species much easier and rewarding. The fact that catching Giant Trevally or GT as the fishers call it with almost any method makes it a fish of choice for most visitors.  Braided line with 80lb capacity is standard while one may consider a 100lb line to ensure definite success.  Popping and jigging rods have improved dramatically over the years.

A reel with drag pressure upwards of 30Lb should be able to do the trick in this case.

Seasons for game fishing in Andaman


Unlike other fishing destinations whose weather does not permit fishing in certain times of the year, the weather in Andaman is conducive all year round depending on the species of fish. The main fishing season begins in October and winds down in about April. Species like Giant Trevally and Doggies can be caught through the entire fishing season.


 Weather patterns are not always easy to predict. Various weather patterns in relations to their location and expected cyclone and Monsoon behavior always pose a challenge to adequate trip preparation and planning. Depending on what time of the year one visits, it is not uncommon to be confined to Port Blair while waiting for more favorable weather conditions. The challenge lies in finding the optimum time of the year to fish. As a guiding rule it has been found the most favorable time is when the temperature increase towards its maximum. This poses a challenge as this directly translates into unfavourable weather conditions. Monsoons and cyclones are at the peak in such temperatures. Finding a balance between the best season to fish and ensuring you remain safe is critical in any visitors travel plans to Andaman. Avoiding the strong winds that come with Monsoons and cyclones is a good idea. Wind speeds of 20 knots are common in the tropics. The weather pattern changes quickly and winds alternate direction without warning. This is caused by low a pressure system resulting from monsoons or cyclones. When all is said and done the optimum-fishing window is about two to three months in a year especially when trying to reach inaccessible and remote spots. For perfect results, proper planning and consultation will yield good results.


With a dwindling fish population, water pollution and other environmental concerns, finding a good destination for Game fishing can be a challenge. It is comforting to know that places like Andaman still exist. If one is preparing for a fun packed fishing trip, consider Andaman as your next destination.
