Bali Sport Fishing Scene;
Hello to our fello fisho’s and thanks for checking out our baliwaves fishing scene.
I know it’s been awhile since I last up dated here, but with all the extra posts I’ve been doing on the site finding the time has been a little difficult. Especially after being out fishing all day from dawn till dusk then taking care of outboards and fishing gear I’m usually pretty well beat up and only enough hours left in the day to BBQ some of the catch.
The last week here on Bali’s West Coast has seen some exceptionally good sport fishing go down with the arrival of some big schools of GT’s, Tuna and Golden Trevelly, plus the odd bonus of some big Spaniards jumping out of the water. I managed to get my traditional 9mtr double outrigger boat out in the water with Ketut a few times over the last week and it was good to feel the power of some solid fish pulling on the other end of the line.
The best thing about this latest batch of fish is that they have been schooling up close to home, from Kuta Reef here in Tuban to the Oberoi Hotel up in Seminyak. There’s also been a lot of schools of Tuna churning up on the surface from Jimburan right sown to Padang Padang.
Home made spinners have been working the magic with a few GT’s also hitting the odd Rapala lure.
Ok so the fishing page / reports are back on the baliwaves so keep your eye open for more
