BAIA BLUEWATER SPORTFISHING
Papua New Guinea has an incredible array of light tackle Sportsfishing options, with almost every species of Pacific gamefish inhabiting the plankton and baitfish rich waters adjacent to the reef and continental shelf.
Imagine trolling rigged baits or deep diving minnow lures for the likes of Wahoo, Spanish mackerel, yellowfin tuna, dolphin fish (Mahi Mahi), various trevally, sailfish & marlin. These tropical speedsters offer exceptional Sportsfishing opportunities.
Much has been written about the variety of fish species abundant in the warm tropical waters off the coast from Papua New Guinea. Not knowing exactly what fish is going to crash your trolled offering is half the fun, hooking up to a leaping, gyrating, lit up sportfish is the other.
The food chain here is complete, with the mass of coral providing shelter and food as predator eats predator. This abundance of life provides the perfect opportunity for the visiting angler to capture some truly magnificent fish.
Giant Trevally (GT) Popper Casting
The Mighty Giant Trevally (G.T.)certainly are a very tough customer. These Robust Predator really take Angler, Tackle & Crew to their very limits and sometimes beyond! These Kings of the Reef patrol along the Reef edge schooling up baitfish
Popper casting for G.T. is predominantly 'Sight Fishing'. It’s incredibly exciting to watch as the huge head and shoulders of a massive G.T. breaks the surface as it devours a well placed cast popper!
Although G.T.s are the prime targeted species for popper casting other fish are also sometimes caught. Among these are Blue spot, Golden, Silver, & Tea leaf Trevally. As well as Spanish Mackerel, Dolphin Fish, Red Bass & Coral Trout just to name a few.
Yet another great way to test out your skill & strength. Jigging can be done year
round. Using a variety of Lead heads, slice type and soft plastics, it is absolutely incredible what you can catch on a jig. Every imaginable bottom fish from coral trout to red emperor and everything in between as well as a bunch of different toothy pelagic’s.
