Bali Sport Fishing Scene
14th May 2016
Hi to all you surfers come fishermen or fishermen come surfers and thanks for checking out my old fishing page here on the baliwaves. I know it’s been a while since I’ve up dated this page but that doesn’t mean we ain’t been out fishing. Nope that’s for sure we have just been pouring the surfing content into the site. Well now the sport fishing scene is really heating up again here in Bali.
The last couple of weeks my fishing crew have been trolling live baits, pilchards for the most of it as they have been schooling up everywhere. That’s what the pelagic fish are feeding on and they also make excellent hardy live baits. The main species we have been smashing are Spanish Mackerel with the average fish caught ranging in the 7 -10kg class and dealing out some hard hitting strikes and line peeling runs.
There’s also been plenty of Wahoo in the 5-8kg class getting caught and these fish have been taking lures and live bait. When it comes to fighting the Wahoo are hard to beat and cook up almost as good as the Spaniards do.
We have also come across some big schools of Jack fish feeding on the surface from Uluwatu all the way up to Tahnalot. Lot’s of fun on light rods with big spools and plenty of line.
Alright this is the first report for 2016 but it won’t be the last so keep an eye out for more fishing up dates here on the baliwaves.
