The variety of fish native to the Mentawai allows for varied fishing techniques.
These islands separated from mainland Sumatra after the second ice age.
Few people inhabit small areas,
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. With GT`S over 40Kg or Dogtooth Tunas that can demand everything, you should use a minimum line class of PE8. recommended leader min 130lbs and
Popper/Stickbaits with 150-250g are suitable.
The warm waters around the Mentawai allow a higher metabolism of the fish to take place and therefore they eat more nutrients and gain a lot of weight.
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. 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 slowjigging and not less than PE4 for speedjigging equipment..
