Andaman Islands

Fishing on the Andaman Islands



Spot profile:

The Andamans are an archipelago in the Indian Ocean consisting of 329 islands.

Virtually every tropical fish species can be caught here and every fishing method can be executed. Jigging is very effective and gives you the chance to catch Dogtooth Tuna in world record sizes. Popping gives you the chance for many different species, though trophy-sized GTs are rare.
