For our second single angler group of the season we had Ian, Bas, Mikko and Essa join us in Kirinda. It was the first popping trip for everyone involved and expectations were high, what they didn’t expect was the amount of work involved in Popping and Jigging! We had beautiful weather for most of the trip with sunny skies and flat seas but conditions were on the tough side for fishing the water vis had deteriorated after some heavy rain fall and the lack of wind and current made for some long hot drifts, but the banter and jokes kept the boys going and they toughed it out and had some great results.

Ian was first on the board with a grouper taken in the shallows around the light house and later on managed a small GT from there on out things steadily improved as the guys got to grips with the tackle and working the lures as the casts got longer and the pops bigger more fish started coming to the boat. We hit the jigging spots as well to get the full experience after a slow start Bas managed a great GT wich gave him a nice work out and Ian landed the biggest Spanish Mackeral of the trip. I lost count of the amount of Jigs the razor blade gang made off with but on the bright side the guys didn’t have to cart too much weight home! The ever present Coral trout were also in abundance and Mikko landed to many different types on the ultra-light jigging gear to keep track of.

With the dirty water hanging around Great Bassas we also di a run to little Bassas to jig the ledges and work the reef around the light house The jigging was on the quite side the Macs claimed their share of jigs again with only Ian gaining revenge and bring one boat side. We tried a few of the reefs and finally struck a productive area with every one getting on the board with GT’s including M ikko who had worked very hard to secure his top water GT.

The fish of the trip definitely went to Ian and funnily enough it happened at the calmest time of the day, the sea was like a millpond and the current was almost non-existent I took us out to one of the deeper ledges an as we slowly drifted along popping away with little success I told Ian to put on a flashy stick bait and work it slowly in the deep water, five casts in and the lure was blown away in a monster hit, after some screaming and shouting about setting the hooks from the captain Ian settled into a brutal tug of war with a great Sri Lankan GT. He was fishing a light rig with a Carpenter EP 86/30 with a Daiwa 5500 loaded with PE 6 but he poured on as much pressure as he dared and we managed to land the beastie, Ian was pretty wiped after the brawl but we kept the GT in good shape with the water pump and he swam away strongly after being released
