About The Activity
This is another great sport Andaman provides its visitors. Both these sports involve fishing, but the way they fish is different from one another. Angling is a way of fishing where those who fish, use a stick to catch fishes. The fishes are either beaten with a stick, or they are stabbed with it. The other is a way of fishing is sport fishing, where the motive of fishing is not killing the fish, rather just seeing who can catch the biggest one. Once the fish is caught, it is pulled out of the water for a brief minute and measured and then it is again sent back into the waters. The one who catches the biggest one wins.
Everyone knows that Andaman offers some of the world's best beaches, reefs and diving. What you might not know is that Andamans also offers world-class sport fishing and angling. Four varieties of bill fish are seen around the islands. Further adrift, large game in excess of 100 lbs have been caught, while divers have even spotted fish exceeding 3 metres in length.
For the hard core angler, the waters that drop off 1000-2000 metres from the East and West coasts of the main islands, present an over-abundance of opportunity to put a few career highlights into that trophy case. Black Marlin, Blue Marlin, Sailfish, Yellow fin Tuna, Dogtooth Tuna and Dorado have been caught in Andamans and its surrounding waters, and the fishing community's firm catch-and-release policy helps ensure that future generations will have the opportunity to test themselves against these magnificent fishes. So hypnotic is the entire experience that lovers of nighttime fishing will give up not from lack of game, but sheer fatigue. If game fishing is your scene, the Andamans is perhaps the last of the planets relatively virgin environments still available. With Experience Andaman's you reach the best spots in comfort and style.
