Saltwater fishing with Pershy & Shanaka !!!

It's with a lot of pleasure we bring Pershy and Shanaka from the famous Sri Lankan anglers Facebook group to fish with us during two days.

We start with Shanaka who was so excited to be onboard our 31ft center console boat powered with twin 200 hp. We have planned to go for some jigging, but before to reach the spot we do a bit of troll and Shanaka caught a yellowfin tuna. First jigging spots didn't produce so much fish, but we finally found some good activities on a new spot and we start catching plenty of skipjack. One of mine was attack by a much bigger fish and I land my skipjack with some big teeth mark... On the next drift Shanaka who was new in jigging technic, has a serious bite and fought a nice fish on light tackle and landed a decent GT on PE-3 line !! 

Next day, Pershy were with us and as Shanaka, he was happy to go fishing on our boat, for sure it is a bit more comfortable compare to a local 19ft boat and 40 hp engine. We also start the day by trolling. After only 5 min, I spotted a sailfish sneezing behind a small skirt lure. To decide him to bite, I play with him and finally took the lure, but sadly I didn't hooked him. Few minutes later, Pershy was on with a nice wahoo. Just before lunch we reach our jigging spots. Action don't start before 2 pm and we start to catch some grouper, skipjack, rosy jobfish, rainbow runner and a nice Cobia for Pershy !!

During these 2 days, the sea was a bit choppy, but the good news, that was the last windy days, now sea is damn calm and we will be soon back for more action !!
