Komodo Islands, Indonesia are well known for Komodo dragon as well as excellent GT fishing internationally. I was planning to visit Komodo for GT popping next spring, but I got disturbing news that Japanese GT fishermen fished 9 days recently and got only four GT. I thought the areas are protected by the Government, but apparently it was not the case as I heard that local people decimate GT population by illegal fishing there and it is common to see 80lb - 100 lbs GT in fish markets. It is very sad news because GT in Komodo Island is like a national treasure and it attracts many fishermen around the world for years and it helps local economy while it doesn't hurt GT population at all as most GT fishermen prefer catch and release. Three Kings Islands and Ranfurly Bank in NZ are fabulous places for huge Kingfish and giant seabass.hapuka. But NZ Governement allowed commecial fishing there and some of charter boats turned into commericial fishing boats. Money spoils everything. I have to search for another GT destination for next spring trip.
