Jigging is the biggest and most popular style of fishing over here in Thailand amongst recreational anglers. This day we had a bunch of local anglers wanting to go that extra distance most boats won’t go. So on possibly one of the flattest days ever, we headed out for a full day of jigging. What a day it was, constant fish action all day long. From King Macks hitting 80-120g jigs, to Noom banging out poppers and smashing Kings and Queens for hours until he got tired. Firts time fishos also got in on the action with nice Threadfin Jacks, and some fantastic African Pompano. Altogether an amazing day offshore, with some very tired but happy anglers onboard, a few beers for the journey home, a couple of phone calls to plan the bbq and a good nights sleep ahead.
