Game Fishing in Andaman & Nicobar

A fishing adventure in Andaman is an experience unlike any other. The archipelago of Andaman & Nicobar is one of the best destinations for popping and jigging in whole of South East Asia due to a large quantity and size of the fish found here. Fish weighing more than 20 kg can be spotted in the islands and there are many other species that can be caught on popping, spinning and jigging activities here. Amongst the most popular fish found in Andaman are red snapper, grouper, coral trout, big Spanish mackerel, barracuda, bluefin, bigeye and pilot trevally, sailfish, wahoo, marlin, dogtooth tuna, yellow fin tuna and bonito along with the famed Giant Trevally (GT)

There are some excellent jigging spots and drop-offs in the island where anglers can catch Giant Trevally within 10-15 minutes from the jetty. While there are few species of fish that can only be caught in a particular season, GT’S and Doggies can be up for the game all through the year. The 30ft ‘Halcyon III’ and the 37ft ‘Rampage,’ are chosen as fast game-fishing vessels to reach remote areas of Ritchie’s Archipelago and the South Andaman Islands and for a long day trips to Barren Island and Invisible Bank.
