Go for your target species early In the morning, as this seems to be the time when the fish are feeding the most, and therefore you get the most action! After about 11am, the sun rises and tides change, so the fish are less active. You don't need to book a full 8 hour day, as in my experience we spent 4 hours catching nothing. If you want to catch marlin, insist on the crew using live bait to increase your chances.

Возьмите с собой защиту на плечи и шею, что-то типа куфия (арабский платок), чтоб не обгореть.(кроме зашитного крема UFP 70)

Talk to a company that's willing to respond to all your inquiries . Use accompany that's willing to walk you through the steps of getting from the airport to your destination

The best time for Fishing i Male is from Jan to March, and try to stay near Vaavu Fulidhoo, a lot of wahoo and Sailfish to be found in the area.

Do your research and booking well in advance and make sure the captain knows what kind of fish and fishing you are aiming for.

Not all fishing charters are the same. Read reviews carefully. Focus on stick baits over poppers. Aim for blue, purple and pink colours.

Always bring a Sunscreen, Hat, Sunglasses (preferably polarized), Seasickness medicine, pain reliever and a Camera is a must! ;) They teach really well.

One of the best places for fishing in the world for GT. Get your fishing guide to take you to the remote atolls and you'll have the time of your life.

Make contact with Issey before you travel. He will advise on tackle to bring. Also to save baggage weight you can buy jigs at a good price in the fishing shops on male.

The area is heavily fished, so allow enough time for a full day, or overnight, excursion to get out further away from the heavily fished areas.

Stay on an island within reasonable distance by boat from Malé town, in order to have access to a variety of fishing grounds. Consider calling Izzy Didi first.

Be prepared to potentially catch nothing. Be prepared for a good time and fun experience though
