Team Finland it still at it in the Maldives – landing wahoo, dog tooth tuna and nice GTs right, left and center! They still have a couple of days fishing left, we don't dare imagine what they'll total before it's finally back to freezing Finlandia 🙂
Remember! We still offer a trip in the Maldives from late February to early March this year. If we can find 3-4 anglers (we have a few seriously interested already) we have a special expedition to a remote atoll that is very rarely fished. Due to the short notice there is a great offer for this trip: 30% discount on the normal price!
Our Finnish team, led by Mika Vornanen, arrived in Male three days ago and have only fished two days – meaning if they are Finnish, they only just got started. And what a start! 19 GTs so far, up to more than 30 kilos, thanks to capt. Mohamed and his hard working crew. With five more days, we don't dare to think what these Finnish vikings will pull from the ocean before the return to the cold.
By the way: We just got a cancellation in the Maldives from late February to early March this year. If we can find 3-4 anglers to go on this fairly short notice we have a special expedition ready to a remote atoll that is very rarely fished. We have a speciel offer for this trip (30% discount on the normal price!).

If you need further convincing, read the Q&A with Capt. Ala'a:
WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED, AND WHAT IS YOUR FISHING BACKGROUND? We are located in Muscat, Oman. Specifically at Marina Bandar Al Rawdha. I started off my game fishing career in 2008 and have been involved in numerous world qualifying championships in this region. I qualified to Costa Rica in 2016 and finished runners up in the Fujairah Offshore Fishing Tournament 2017. Then I travelled to the Outer banks in North Carolina in 2014 for the almighty Bluefin Tuna with the Saltywater Tackle crew.
WHEN, AND HOW, DID YOU DISCOVER THE TUNA FISHING IN MUSCAT? Muscat has always been known to be home for the Yellowfin Tuna and other pelagic species. Unfortunately, we had a very bad run of fishing from 2007-2011 due to Korean fleets trolling nets in our waters in collaboration with an Omani sponsor. This made our fishery suffer and luckily this form of fishing has been banned since 2011. It took a couple of years for the fishery to recover and I decided to bring in the topwater game I picked up in the states in 2014. It has been a great success!
FOR HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN TUNA FISHING IN MUSCAT? I started briefly in 2014 and have been doing it extensively since 2015. Nevertheless, the captains that work for us have been tuna fishing in Muscat since the late 90s and have been working with popping techniques for 3 to 4 years now.
HOW DO YOU FISH FOR THESE TUNES – IS IT OFTEN A LOT OF DRIFTING & BLIND CASTING OR IS IT MORE OF A HUNT?? We never blind cast or drift in Muscat. First, we locate the fish using all available means, whether it is local intel, marine radars or experience. Once the fish is located then it’s a hunt, most of the time we fish for the YFT feeding with the dolphins (Spinners and common dolphin). During part of the season (April to July) they can be found both with dolphins as well as busting solo. We mainly target the YFT on popper or stick bait, and sometimes jigging. Live bait is always a back up with us just in case the fish are really picky. Most of the time our poppers are inhaled sooner or later.
WHAT IS THE TUNA SEASON IN MUSCAT? Tuna can be found year round in Muscat if searched for enough. The peak season is from March to July as the water warms up and turns blue.
WHAT WEATHER SHOULD BE EXPECTED DURING SEASON? The weather is generally predictable during the season. A long swell could be expected from May to July during the SW Monsoon season in the Arabian sea (20 days a month would be fishable).
HOW FAR WILL YOU RUN TO FIND FEEDING TUNAS? During the season the fish are often first spotted from 20-30km offshore. We don't have any restriction and sometimes run in deeper to find the right feed. Typically, it will be somewhere between 30 and 100km offshore. ON AN AVERAGE DAY DURING TUNA SEASON WHAT KIND OF ACTION CLULD BE EXPECTED? On an average day, 3-4 hooks ups could be expected. When the fishing is on fire, 10 to 15 strikes could be expected easily, landing every fish is a different story!
WHAT SIZES ARE THE TUNAS YOU ARE CATCHING? Average size during the season is 40-60KG, smaller YF in the 10-20KG range are also encountered. This April, numerous specimens between the 70 and 100KG range were caught.
WHAT IS THE BIGGEST YFT LANDED ON YOUR TWO BOATS? The three biggest went 77 KG, 83KG and 86KG. WHAT KIND OF TACKLE (PE RATING) DO YOU RECOMMEND? PE 5-6 is what we’ll be using for the 40 to 60KG class fish which are dominant during the month of April. Nevertheless, one heavy rod (PE8 to 10) could be required once the fish crosses that 70KG mark.
WHICH LURES ARE AMONGST YOUR FAVORITES FOR YFT? Halco Roosta Haymaker Popper, Carpenter Seafrog 120g, FCL Labo EbiPop 190 and 220, Tacklehouse Britt Sinking stickbait 98g. Native Works Napalm 200 or 220, Guston Super Knife 180. Our rule of thumb: Tuna feeding on baitfish (goggle eye or sardines): Stickbait/Poppers. Tuna feeding on flying fish: Poppers. Tuna feeding on Squid: Diving Poppers.
CAN YOU HIRE TACKLE, OR IS IT INCLUDED – AND IF SO, WHAT KIND OF TACKLE DO YOUR OFFER? Tackle is included (we offer 1 rod/reel per person). All our reels are Shimano Stellas 8k, 10k, 14k, 18k and 20k. Rods: Yamaga, Hots, Carpenter, Zenaq, Jigging Master, Saltywater Tackle Racepoint, Ripple Fisher.
ARE THE OTHER SPECIES TO FISH FOR, AND IF SO HOW DO YOU FISH FOR THEM? Yes, mahi-mahi and sailfish – both of which can be targeted on topwater as well. We also have some inshore light tackle jigging for amberjacks, grouper, long-tail tuna and barracuda.
AND FINALLY: IN OMAN, IS IT POSSIBLE TO GET A COLD BEER AFTER FISHING? Yes, it's possible to get a cold beer after fishing ... Se merSe mindre
What a way to start the New Year! It's our first day of fishing in the Maldives and our five Swedish anglers seems to be having a blast: These pictures just came in from capt. Mohamed's phone. What a way to start their weeks fishing. Biggest GT estimated around 30 kg for Thomas Helland. Keep up the good work, guys! ... Se merSe mindre
