Greg, Loota and Sam were fantastic hosts and very experienced fishermen. There was none of this just chucking out a few Skirted Lures and dragging them behind the Boat all day hoping that a fish would strike. We constantly changed Skirts and different areas looking for the fish and what Lures they wanted for the day. I have fished with the Pure Indulgence Team for the past three years and learnt some valuable techniques that I use to improve my catch rates back here in Australia. They are a professional team that love putting their customers on the FISH.

Amazing location, Amazing crew and the best fishing trip money can buy. I’ve fished three years in a row with Troppo and can’t get enough, there hospitality is second to none and fishing in tropical blue water is addictive. You won’t find a better owner/skipper/decky and your Troppo adventure will be a memory that will last forever.

Booking trip at short notice was great. Talking with skipper prior we made plan to go later in day as skipper indicated yellowfin were biting better in afternoon at the time, Crew were excellent and put us onto target species after trawling for just over an hour. We had a double hook up and we landed both fish after 1 hour 20 with some excellent advice through the fight. Gear was excellent. Guys experienced and friendly. We left the boat with all the fillets we could possibly eat and left the rest for crew to take back to there families. 2 large yellowfin in excess of 60kg. Superb trip
