Captain Hook’s “Great White”

Havelock Island
Havelock, India

We are a sports fishing charter based in Havelock island, Andaman and Nicobar Islands, India. In the Bay of Bangal, the island is streaming with game fish as there in no commercial fishing in these waters!

I own and operate this charter called “Captain Hooks’s Sports fishing” with 3 boats and a very well trained team of local lads who know this all the great GT popping grounds like the back of their hands!

We specialise in popping for GT’s, speed jigging and live baiting! The list of species that we catch here is mind boggling! Trolling is mostly when moving from one ground to the next!

I have set up this charter here and have been catering to fishers from all over the Globe for the last 8 years. I also operate a modest fishing lodge!

My thinking is .... You come to us as guests but will leave as friends! My wife and I personally oversee all the operations and will ensure that apart from great fishing…you will get a treat that will want you coming back here year after year!

I came to the Andaman Islands from Bangalore to work for a Grouper fish export Company and just fell ion love with the Islands. Found Sports Fishing to be much more satisfying then the company work and started a charter for Sports fishing Called Captain Hooks Sports Fishing! My Wife and I together work to ensure that this is operated as a fishing enthusiast's outfit rather then a business! We also operate a Fishing Lodge at the Sea Shore on Havelock Island where we are based. Tight Lines!!

Qutab worked very hard
Great onshore person arranging all logistics
He speaks wonderful English; good story teller.
Very intelligent; appears to be a good business guy
Gave me the bigger boat at the same price.
Found good, affordable lodging for me in Havelock and in Port Blair
Put me on bait ball after bait ball
The Tale of the Tape: a monster Giant Trevally!
Surely would have gotten more but I insisted on using only the flyrod after the first, NOT HIS FAULT, almost impossible to get close enough w/o spooking them (plus upwind, boat turned 90 degrees, stable enough for a cast, etc etc etc…..).  We flyfishermen are bloody mad!

Boat, captain and fishing was awesome, my overall experience is rated with 3 stars only due to due to logistics mixup which resulted in starting the trip short on the first day and cutting it a bit short on the second day, the boat was further than we thought it was and we had to take a fairy..

Hi Bob,

Thanks for your generous words and a honest review. It was a pleasure having you here. It was a bit too short a time but hope to spend more time on boat in your future trips. I have made the necessary updates with FishingBooker to ensure all future guests coming fishing here are well aware of the logistics and are well prepared. I honestly feel bad that you had to cut short your fishing time due to these factors.
Looking forward to seeing you again soon.

Cheers
Captain Qutub

This is the first time to Havelock.
They’re professional, good on fish and very good service.
We’ve got a nice time and we’re impressed.
We have already planned to fish with them again.
Thank you very much.

Very helpful and amicable staff made this trip the best thing in Andamans. Both fishing and diving was great and we ended up with several species that were on my bucket list. Accommodation was great and I must thank again to the crew for making me feel like part of the crew. Unforgettable!

I will be back soon
