The variety of fish native to the Mentawai, allows for varied fishing techniques.
These islands separated from mainland Sumatra, after the second ice age.
Only a few people inhabit small areas surrounded by rainforest.
it is a true tropical fishing paradise!
The coastal areas are richly covered with mangroves and individual river systems meander through the fertile area. Mangrove Jacks and smaller Groupers can be caught with light tackle. Line classes up to PE0.8 are sufficient for this.
here offers fishing with fly rod in class 5-6 as an excellent activity.
Here you can expect powerful GT’s when you fish your surface bait over the flats. The waters host big giant trevally or tuna that can demand everything from you, prepare yourself with a minimum line class of PE8 and 130lbs leader.
The warm water around the Mentawai allows the fish to have a higher metabolism, so they absorb more nutrients and gain a lot of strength.
The deep fishing grounds promise a variety of strong fighting fish. Our recommendation is that you have a little more equipment here with combos PE2.5-3 and PE4-5 for fishing near the reef. Important here are reels with enough line capacity, e.g. Shimano Ocea Jigger 2000 / Shimano Saragosa 10000.
most often used knife jigs with 200 – 250g. For this we recommend leaders with min 100lbs carrying capacity a main line of not less than PE 2.5 for slow jigging and not less than PE4 for speed jigging equipment..
Would you like to experience the big deal when fishing for Wahoos, Marlin and Tunas? This can also be planned according to your wishes.
