Remo Baleri is a fresh water angler and have never fished on the ocean before and he was very excited to join our team at #justsalt on board #vitaminsea for a half day adventure. He had a special request, to fish Yellowfin Tuna. We at #justsalt try to our very best to keep our dear anglers happy so one day before the trip, we set out to find the best possible spots for the yellowfin. The following day #vitaminsea departed hulhumale at 0345 in the morning to pick up Remo from a nearby resort. At around 0415 we were on our way from the resort to the best spot our team had marked in advance the previous day. The conditions were just awesome for Yellowfin Tuna. As we arrived Remo was welcomed by Yellowfin Tuna jumping out of the water. A spectacular sight to behold. Remo was excited to see the local fishermen fishing for Yellowfin Tuna using traditional pole and line fishing method. First Remo tried his luck on handline trolling, didn't take him long and FISH ON!!!!! Things improved from there onwards. The rest is history. See for yourselves. Hurry up and book your next trip with #justsalt onboard #vitaminsea See you here soon !!!

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.Continue reading
