Departed Male’ at 2 in the afternoon. Arrived at our fishing spot, 25 miles north of Male’ around 33000 as the sea had quite a bit of swells. The strike rates were absolutely amazing. Not all were successful but a great day of jigging nonetheless. We used daiwa saltiga 5000 reels with 100/80 lbs of Braid and 70lb leader. And shimano Speed master and daiwa saltiga rods. Jig size varied from 140g to 200g both medium fast and fast jigs were used.
