Game fishing in Andaman islands are very popular and these fishing trips are done both in Port Blair and Havelock Island. Huge fishes have been earlier caught in the islands and for this reason game fishing enthusiasts from all across the globe travel to Andaman to catch that one big fish.
Everyone knows that Andaman offers some of the world's best beaches, reefs and diving. What you might not know is that Andamans also offers world-class sport fishing and angling.
Four varieties of bill fish are seen around the islands. Further adrift, large game in excess of 100 lbs have been caught, while divers have even spotted fish exceeding 3 metres in length. For the hard core angler, the waters that drop off 1000-2000 metres from the East and West coasts of the main islands, present an over-abundance of opportunity to put a few career highlights into that trophy case. Black Marlin, Blue Marlin, Sailfish, Yellow fin Tuna, Dogtooth Tuna and Dorado have been caught in Andamans and its surrounding waters, and the fishing community's firm catch-and-release policy helps ensure that future generations will have the opportunity to test themselves against these magnificent fishes.
