Dear all,

This is our first trip to explore Maumere in Flores, Indonesia.
Our main goal is casting to YFT school on the surface , but unfortunately the YFT school can not be found.
According to local fishermen we met in Maumere, the good time for casting YFT is in October-November and best time is April-May, so were way a bit too early for targetting tuna in the area.

We were informed that,
in the months of October-November: YFTs will surface in morning until afternoon and
in the months of April-May: YFTs will be on the surface all day.

Due to this situation then we were forced to execute plan B ...... GT popping which resulted in us CnR a few GTs, Red Bass n Barracuda.

Check these video, although we did not reach our main goal but overall we had a lot of fun:
|| Xtreme-Ulua.com - Fishing Gallery ||

Maumere is scheduled for a revisit and pending the informations from the locals, if there are no obstacles, Xtreme Ulua will definitely return to Maumere in April or May 2010 for chasing big YFT.

Have a nice strike !
Adam

Still an untouched paradise.
Carefull of the locals who still like to bomb fish.
Local crayfish divers are bent as. If you ever go take panadol & fresh water
to give them and they'll take you to their best fishing spots.
Spent alot of time up there diving for shells & fishing in the 90's.
Locals are some of the friendliest on the planet.

forgot to add if you can buy cheap full faced masks to take and swap the world will be your oyster. These guys still make 2 piece googles out of coconut shell and line with any hard plastic they can get there hands on.
Instant fishing spots :)
