    FISHING TOUR SRI LANKA  

Fishing Tour In Sri Lanka

Fishing Tour In Sri LankaFishing is sacred ritual for a sizeable chunk of the male population. The lure of escaping the daily grind and catching the mystical “fish of a life time” keeps anglers coming back for more. Fishing for indigenous sporting fish in Sri Lanka is free. With a shoreline of 1,140 miles and a continental shelf of 10,000 square miles, the seas around Ceylon have an unlimited fishing potential hardly exploited. Trolling over the continental shelf yields catches of tuna ranging from the 2-3ft skipjack to the 6ft yellowfin and bluefin, the acrobatic dolphin, swordfish and marlin which attain a size to provide a challenge to the best big game fishermen of any country. The broadbill swordfish found in deeper waters reach a length of 15ft and a weight of well over 1,000lb. Though reaching only 10ft and 250lb, the sailfish compensate for their smaller size by their remarkable agility.

Getting the services of a professional fishing tour company, specially a professional guide can improve the odds of landing the perfect catch and add to the overall enjoyment of a fishing trip. With its extensive coast-line and numerous reservoirs and lakes, Sri Lanka is an excellent location to participate in, and enjoy the exciting sport of inland and deep sea fishing.

Fishing Tour In Sri LankaThe monsoons regulate the fishing in Sri Lanka Seas. The western and southern coasts are favoured during the North-East monsoon (from October to April) and the east coast during the South-West monsoon (from May to September). The best season for sport fishing in Sri Lanka in Western and South Eastern Coast is from August to May when the seas are calm. The popular bait are artificial lures but live bait is also used frequently. The bottom water bait such as Ropala, Big Mack, Sisco Kid are popular and many other deep runners can be used successfully, with the Sail Fish and Grouper. The other top water bait are Squid Skirts.

Inland fishing can be arranged at any time of the year due to the relatively smooth flow of water on inland waterways and reservoirs located around Sri Lanka. However, as with all sea-based activities, deep sea fishing in Sri Lanka is also seasonal , with the Western and Southern coasts accessible from November to April and the East coast more suitable for the activity from May to September.

Fishing Tour In Sri LankaThe outfalls of 103 major river basins and hundreds of other estuaries, lagoons and coastal lakes all round the island are the most popular spots frequented by local surf casters as well as bait fishermen. Many varieties of game fish of the Carangid family, locally called paraw and know elsewhere as trevally, horse mackerel, etc, are taken. These swift and powerful carnivorous fish attain a length of 5ft and a weight of 150lb. The schooling habits of the caranx, their keen eyesight and some built-in sensory mechanism make them congregate in estuaries immediately after monsoons and rains.

You have the option of fishing from the beach itself or venture out to sea in an in-built or out-board fibre-glass motor boat to try your hand at troll fishing. Safety equipment such as jackets as well as rods and bait, and other equipment will be supplied by us . Fishing expeditions can be arranged as day tours or as part of a longer itinerary.
