Wow I need to travel great stuff, any pictures of your catch??
Some pics from this season. Trying to upload images first time so not sure if this will work.
In Canada and north of USA. In fresh water for lake trouts using slow jigs on 60-80gr, it's deadly!
Nice I never though about jigs for lake trout
Pakistan, tell us what the fishing is like in Pakistan, I am very curious?
Well, what exactly do you want to know? We have a variety of species ranging from smaller reef species to hard fighting sports fish like black/blue marlin. Offshore fishing season starts around mid September and realistically lasts till April. For the remaining months we have high monsoon winds which makes venturing offshore quite risky/uncomfortable.
Jigging is very productive and is the main focus during the initial couple of months every season. However, other methods of fishing are very popular as well (popping/trolling/bait). Fishing is not very well regulated and that is hurting the fish stock (especially reef species). With time, general awareness to this issue is increasing but enforcement of policies is still lacking.
There are some less explored areas where I personally believe fishing can be at par with some well known fishing destinations, primarily for GTs. However, lack of proper marina and lack of easy availability of fuel make exploring them difficult.
As far as I know there is no fishing lodge in Pakistan, am I wrong ? I'm sure there are some charters, I'm talking about an operator that does all inclusive stays dedicated to fishing. Please advise Atif, I'm curious about that.
I take for granted that we have Marina's it seems everywhere in the US
the best fishing grounds are the ones without marinas nor all weather anchorage
Love this thread.
Yeah... not many marinas on Socotra
me too winter sucks
